Thank you for sharing your Glad freezer paper, the bunnies look great :)
Thanks Loosie, love Chris
Great bunnies & tip. I love to learn multiple ways to use a common kitchen product!!
Thanks Cindy, you're welcome. Love Chris
Merci beaucoup pour le lien. Je vais m'empresser de faire quelques lapins pour poser sur le tapis d'éveil que je crée pour ma petite fille Courthney (6 mois). Amicalement.
Thank you for commenting. Love Chris
Oh they are SO CUTE !!! I went to spotlight the other day and didn't find anything in the 'fur' section that expensive. Just wanting to see if I could find it on sale LOL. Yep $70 is very expensive. You did a GREAT job on the little bunnies. :)
Thanks so much. This was bought at the Spotlight store in Newcastle - it was $69.95 a metre, but as I said I only got 1/2 a metre. It's in the fur section along with the fluffy fabrics and felt on rolls. Love Chris
Thanks . I will still look out for this fur whenever I go to Spotlight. My girls have a beautiful bunny with floppy ears and she feels gorgeous, so it would be wonderful to recreate that feeling. Fluffy has floppy ears too. So cute. :D
where did you find that adorable bunny at? those are wonderfull
Dear Lynnae you should be able to click on the address below and you should be able to see it there . Hope that helps .http://www.goldenneedledesigns.co... If not if you scroll down on this page Shirlene 88 made a comment and Pennifold answered with the link.
Hi Lynn, yes they are from Golden Needles company - they are a free design and were first put up here a few weeks ago. Love Chris
Thank you so much Chris! These look terrific. Thanks also for the tip!
Hi Nadyne, I thought it a wonderful tip and coming from one of the teachers, you can't go wrong. Love Chris
Chris they turned out lovely, thanks for the tip
Hi Marian, thanks so much and you are more than welcome. Love Chris
All your bunnies are adorable, and thanks for the tip on Glad go between I will give it a try. I just downloaded the bunnies, can't wait to sew them.
Thanks so much for commenting, hope yours sew well too. Love Chris
Chris they are really cute. Love the fur ones. Hugs Lynn.
Thanks Lynn, me too. You should have seen Ophelie's eyes light up when she saw it. Love Chris
Thanks for your kind comments, love Chris
Thanks so much, Dilceia. Love Chris
How pretty , well done. Hugs Yvonne
Thanks Yvonne, sorry haven't been on for a day or so. Love Chris
How adorable Chris - will you let me know where you got this design? Thanks for the Glad freezer paper idea, too.
Hi Shirlene, yes the design is from Golden Needles - it's a free design they put out for Easter. I'll give you the link. Glad to see you on here. Love Chris
Hey Shirlene I'm happy to see you here too !!! :D
It looks so sweet and cute
Thanks very much Stella, love Chris
Do you hoop stablizer under the felt, my felt seemed to shift some?? Love all your bunnies
Did you add the names before adding the back felt?
Hi there Mlbell, first of all, I hooped tear away stabiliser. Then I placed a piece of fur fabric on top and used the Fix stitch to keep it in place. I then put the plastic film on top of the fur and used the Fix stitch again to keep it in place. And yes, I added the names before putting the backing on otherwise the egg wouldn't fit into the bag. Good luck with whatever you do. Love Chris
I tried to emb. just on the felt to make the bunny but it wasn't stiff enough, so I thought it must need stabiliser under it, thanks for confirming that question and also putting the film on top. I really like all your bunnies
Great job, Chris! Thanks for the tip.
Thanks Lidia, love Chris
These rabbits are adorable. Thanks for the tip on Glad Go Between. Will check it out. We used to have many years ago Freezer Paper on a roll here in USA. I haven't been able to find it anywhere. My husband was a big fisherman and we used the paper to wrap fish for the freezer. I know that quilters here also used it. I took a quilting class in 1976 and the quilt is still in my head.lol It was all by hand stitching and I prefer to use the sewing machine/emb machine. I used the freezer paper to make patterns . olds/Maureen
Hi Maureen, sounds like it was a winner. Love Chris
Hi Olds, I get my freezer paper at Wal-Mart in the aisle with the wax paper, plastic wrap etc. It is always on the bottom shelf and only one row wide. Hope that helps.
I love all your rabbits Chris. Thanks for the tip. Shirley
Thanks Shirley, you are welcome, love Chris
Great tip! Thank you, they are very cute!
Thanks so much, love Chris
Thank you Chris for that tip. I have never heard of that product but will look in Woolworths next time I'm in there. The bunnies look gorgeous.
Thanks so much and I'm sure you will locate it. It's a brand that is very well known. Love Chris
Love then. Chris did you use the Go-between on to ?
Soory--on top of the fabric
Hi Sandra, yes, if you look you can see what I've done in picture 1 and 3. Love Chris
Very cute made with the fur! But I am gonna stick with felt for my batch - easier for them. I did the same as you - I used greys on white with a blue eye.
Yes, it just looked nicer I thought. Love Chris
Very nice and cute. Thank you.
Thank you very much and I love your avatar!!! Love Chris
This product isn't available in the US, but I've used Glad clear wrap on towels when stitching out a very stitch intense lighthouse design from Embroidery Library and it worked great.
That's also good to know. Love Chris
Sehn alle sehr gut aus
Danke, liebe Chris
very cute bunnies
and bet the wrap thing is another item to ask for and drive the shop assistant crazy here in Germany (could try Wollworth and keep my eyes open on local brands) thanks for the info, Chris
Hi Muflotex, I'm sure you can get GLAD WRAP ITEMS anywhere in the world. Just remember that it is freezer film that you place between meat to keep them from being stuck together. Love Chris
Thanks for sharing this great tip! Cute bunnies…all of them.
Thanks very much, love Chris
Wonderful herd & great tip Chris thanks for sharing. ~hugs~
Thanks Loralye, you are welcome, love Chris
Love your little rabbits Where can u get the pattern? Thanks
its a freebie at the moment, hope you see this http://www.goldenneedledesigns.co...
Hi dentalclogger, Golden Needles is the place as vlh has put up above.
I was a Dental receptionist for over 10 years!!!!! Love Chris
Thank you Ladies so much I looked on the sight but didn't find the bunnies Chris 25 years at the same office as an assistant I have been very blessed and all you Ladies here are so helpful and kind to share all your talents I am greatful Thanks a Million Tracie
When I left school I trained as a dental nurse
These are so cute!! I love the personalization as well!! Great idea with the Glad wrap as well!
Thanks Judy, I thought so too! Love Chris
Nice tip. I use Glad freezer paper all of the time in applique (not the machine type), but I haven't noticed if we have the Go-Between. I'll be sure and look.
Cute Bunnies and brave you to have fur flying for Easter. ;)
Thanks Jerrilyn, there are many things I think us sewers can use, if only we had the time to find them. I love using fur, but yes, you are right, fibres all over the place! Love Chris
excellent love them also great idea with the glad go between film
Thanks so much, love Chris
Excellent tip! Thanks Chris its on my shopping list. It will be cheaper than WSS, I use a lot with doing towels and baby blankets and I hate that I have to wet it.
I love your Bunnies, they look Great!!
Hi Didi, yes, isn't it great what's out there? I would never have thought of using it, it's amazing what people will come up with to make things easier. Love Chris
Thanks so much, love Chris
thanks for the tip Chris. Love your bunnies too, even though they are an absolute feral. Like the fox and the cat. Why Why are the ferals so jolly Cute!!! Makes getting rid of them so difficult.
Yeah, I know what you mean, especially out there in South Australia's farming land. Love Chris
Lovely bunnies and thank you for the tip on the gladwrap.
Thank you and you are welcome, love Chris
Excellent pieces, and I love the personalization. Thank for the fur topping tip, looks easy and affordable! Thanks
Hi Chris, well I thought it wonderful and it's so easy. I had concerns that it would just fall apart once the needle pierced the film, but it didn't. It was wonderful. Love Chris
Thanks also you just gave me my 86,000 flower! Love Chris
These are so nice, and thx for the tip will also look for the inbetween glad wrap, like the other have never seen this but will look for them, thank you all for the tips you give us, we appreciate
You are welcome 'Dupsilly' and anytime I find out something that I think can help all of us on here I'll gladly let everyone know of it. Love Chris
I haven't seen it either. Will watch out for it!
Chris these are lovely. We have Glad here but I do not think we have that one. I will have a look. Do you use it like WSS? Hugs Sarah.
Hi Sarah, yes, it's like using WSS except you don't wash it off you just pull it off like you do the tear away stabiliser. It's wonderful and made it so easy to sew the fur fabric. Thanks for commenting, love Chris
I will now have to see if I can get it here. I doubt it.
I have been using this for 17yrs ... works like a dream on towels..love your bunnies
Glad that I've found someone else that uses it. Love Chris
I must add.. I do not use glad but get mine from my local butcher..it is very much the same thing
Love your bunnies! The names add such a nice personal touch.
Thanks very much for commenting. Love Chris
Very cute bunnies especially the furry ones. Thanks for the tip too.
That's o.k. Mum, glad to be of help. Love Chris
Your rabbits are very nice, I love the name on them!
Thanks very much, doesn't cause squabbles that way! Love Chris
I have Glad freezer paper, but have never seen the "go between" that you are showing in your pics. Will look for it next time I go shopping and thanks for the new idea! Hugs and blessings.
Hello Penny, yes, this is more like a glad wrap. Apparently you place this between your meat when freezing separate pieces. Say for example you have 4 steaks, you just place a piece between each steak. Great idea! Love Chris
very cute bunnies Chris ,the fur ones are extra sweet
Thanks Monika, I thought so too. Love Chris
great job love the idea thanks
Thanks so much DeVon, love Chris
Great hint - thanks!!! Your Grands will love these!!! Hugs, Laura*
Well only 5 will use them as Delphi is only 6 months old and Chase is 5 months old. But, the others will love them, I'm sure. Love Chris
They all look great Chris. Now just to fill them...
Hi Tracey, yes, I'm only putting in one of those smaller Easter Rabbits. Love Chris
I wouldn't mind one of those...at least they are chocolate...lol
Looking good, Chris! Does the freezer paper tear away easier and cleaner than the WSS topping?
Hi Kim, yes, it just rips off. With the WSS you've got to wet it to remove it, my WSS doesn't teat easily. Love Chris
Thanks, Chris...I will have to check and see if we have it here...I have the bags for freezing small portions or using as layers in between meat, but I have not seen a roll...
they look beautiful
Thanks Maria, love Chris
Clever ! How did you hear about the glad product? Does it work better than embroidery topping? i am sure it is probably more reasonable.
Hi Kay, yesterday at Sewing guild one of the women there told me that she heard it from a good source. It was one of the teacher's who does machine embroidery!!!! Great to hear of these tips, isn't it? Well, I'm glad I used this stuff as using WSS wouldn't suit as the fabric was fur and it would get wet. Love Chris
What a clever idea. A couple of years ago I had to make a Santa Suit and looked everywhere for white fur for the trim. Got it at Lincraft not as expensive as yours but the fluff sure goes every where especially up the nose while cutting. Lovely job you have done with the Bunnies and I like that they all have names.
When I bought minky at the fabric store, the clerk who helped me said, when you get home, take this out of the bag while still outside and shake it a lot. Leave that fluff dust outside for the birds to make their nests, not all over your sewing room.
I was wondering whether I could put the fur fabric in the fridge to see if that would stop it flying all over the place! I just shook the bunnies outside after I'd finished them. Love Chris
Grace, I do that with all of my soft fluffy fabrics too, it saves having fibres all over my sewing room. I forgot to do that with the hessian (burlap) and we had red and green fibres everywhere when Amy and I made Christmas stockings! I've since learned!!!!! Love Chris
We have that freezer paper here in the dollar store i never thought to use it .Next time i use furry fabric i will think of you Chris.Thanks for the tip hugs Carolyn
Oh my i forgot ;Love your bunnies wheres hubby's and yours???lol
Thanks Carolyn, I bought mine at one of the IGA (Independent Grocery stores) for only $3.85 Australian. I'm sure you can buy them from Coles and Woolworths here too. I'm not sure of your grocery stores in Canada. I don't make the Easter treat bags for us. We usually only buy the kids. Love Chris
Ms Chris, these are so cute, like the idea of the names on them. The two extra furry ones are for cuddling as well as Easter. They do look soft. Am I to understand you used the glad film as a topping, stitched over it and then took it off? Leaha
Hi Leah, yes that is why I showed you in Picture 1 the paper on top of the fur. Then the third picture is with the design all stitched down. Once it's all finished you just rip off the film, dead easy. Love Chris
Happy Easter and thank you for explaining this to me. :)
