The Sad Tale of a Darling Bunny Dress

As y'all know, I love to sew for my darling niece.  She is a year old now and we're coming up on her second Easter, so I wanted her to have a new spring wardrobe.



Who doesn't just love seer sucker?  I bought this pink striped seer sucker a while back, not really knowing what I wanted to make, but then inspiration hit and this is what I came up with.


I  love this minky dot bunny my friend Marianne appliqued for me.  I have got to get me an applique/monogram machine especially since my friend is moving far, far away this summer! 

I was so thrilled with how this little jumper turned out that I didn't want to wait until Easter to give it to my niece, so I decided to mail it to her.  This is where the sad part comes in...  I went to the post office and purchased one of those padded envelopes to mail the dress and matching bloomers.  As I was addressing the envelope I noticed those "if it fits it ships" boxes and I thought, maybe I should have used one of those instead, but I had already started writing on the envelope and had sealed it shut so I kept what I had.  I've mailed outfits in the same type of envelope before and all was well... but that was then.  I don't know what happened to the bunny dress after I paid the postage and handed the package over to the post office.  It's been well over a week and the package never arrived at my sisters house a mere two hours away.  My darling niece will not have a darling bunny dress to wear to the egg hunt and her Auntie Wren is heart broken. :(  I've got several more outfits made for the baby, but I will be hand delivering them from now on!

**GOOD NEWS!  Since this post, the bunny dress has been delivered! Yay!**
