How Cute!

Or maybe I should say Plumcute!


At the quilt show in Manteca, we visited Tracy Souza's booth--she's the designer of Plumcute Designs; I mentioned her after the show. Most of us bought one of her Hippity Hop Easter pail kits, and I made mine tonight. Well, I didn't make the PAIL but I made the wool cuff that goes around it. It has two bunnies, an Easter egg, and two button flowers. Cute, isn't it?


I substituted blue wool for the white wool provided in the kit and then I used the white wool for the rabbits. I also added little pom-pom tails. You can see in the photo below what the cuff looks like when it's not wrapped around a metal pail:


Now that I've made mine, I'm ready to pass the pattern on. I think I could probably come up with a little wool kit to make the cuff too, but I don't have any extra pails, so you'd need to provide your own. If you're interested in winning the pattern and some supplies to make a reasonable facsimile of the wool cuff, and if you have a United States mailing address, please comment that you want to be entered, and I'll pick a winner Saturday night to be posted on Sunday's blog post.

What are you waiting for? Hop to it!
