Bunnies, baby chicks, and delicate petals all make for delightful seasonal inspiration. Whether you are baking chocolate-coated marshmallow chicks or embellishing Easter carrot stamped treat sacks — the range of designs is just about endless. The same ingenuity can be applied to embroidered hoop art. You may have already been impressed by the embroidery talent of Chloe Giordano with her cross-stitched life-like rabbits. Now, taking to Instagram, there are other springtime furry fellows made by various crafters that will also have you hopping for Easter joy.
If the curious tale of Peter Rabbit taught us nothing (other than to stay out of Mr. McGregor's garden), it was that bunnies look simply adorable in a pale blue button down. Masha Bushina, an illustrator and designer from Russia, thinks so too — which is why her hoop art applied to blouses is giving us spring wardrobe inspiration.

Maybe it was the little white rabbit from Alice and Wonderland or possibly the fact that magicians prefer to keep white rabbits in their hats, but any snowy bunny seems magical to us. Rosa and Chocolat has stitched the white embroidered rabbit, among other whimsical woodland creatures.
We've raved about Oxford artist Chloe Giordano's embroidered baby bunnies, foxes, squirrels, and deer. "If I had to pick a favorite, I'd probably say hares at the moment," she previously told Martha Stewart Living. "They're such beautiful animals and I love finding out about the myths and folklore they've inspired."

Take a closer look at what's hiding in the greens — it's a floppy-eared bunny! Emillie Ferris, the artist behind these fanciful hoop art creations, takes cues from Mother Nature and even does pet portraits.
It is officially Sewn by the Beach's second anniversary! Go back 11 posts for special coupon codes for orders over $30 that end tonight at midnight. I started my business on a whim, and after selling to some friends and family (you know who you are and thank you!), I started getting orders from around the country and then all over the world. In two years, I've had 115 sales to nearly every state and to many far flung countries. I had the the thrill of being featured on Jo Ann Fabric's Instagram feed and on Etsy's Etsy Finds. It has been such an enjoyable journey and grown from a hobby to a legitimate business that I hope will continue to grow much further! Thank you for all the kindness and support you have shown me over the years!
Delicate details along with a steady hand are what transforms a spool of thread into something as realistic as say, a rabbit. Sewn by the Beach, does that and few extras with her fine fiber art and wool painting methods. Her perky-eared hare looks almost like the real Easter bunny.
Whether you prefer long-eared bunnies or ones with extra fluffy cotton tails, you can't help but love a cute stitched bunny. And this particular embroidered rabbit from Etsy shop Kate Shipley Studio proves that point.
Thank you to those of you who have taken advantage of the 15% off code :) I have completely ran out of my usual packaging now because you are keeping me so busy!

Katy, hailing from the United Kingdom isn't just making colorful designs from threads, but she is "Stitching Happy." Her Etsy shop, Pixie Craft Handmade ranges in a series of bright creations from blue birds to ever colorful rainbows. But it's her bright bunny — stitched in a departure from the typical pastel palette of Easter — that catches our eye.
Feeling inspired? Why not practice embroidery with these stitched dinner napkins?
