If you don’t know about them already, blogger Jess Abbott and the rest of the Sewing Rabbit team come up with some pretty fun DIY projects on the regular. Growing up, Jessica’s nickname was Jessica Rabbit. Little did she know she would actually marry an Abbott, becoming Jessica R. Abbott (get it?) and eventually, the Sewing Rabbit! We decided to let you in on a few of our favorite of their projects. Let us know what you think!
This particular tutorial is a two-in-one packaged deal. Learn how to make Lego hair bow headbands for the girls AND bow ties for the boys! The Legos add a totally unique and customizable detail you don’t see very often.
While we’re on the subject, how about a Lego-themed Pocket Pals Pillow? The kids will have fun tucking their favorite tiny toys in goodnight, and as Jessica points out, you’ll have fun not stepping on them!
The Madeline Dress is so adorable it speaks for itself. We’re in love with all the little surprises this pattern has to offer, like the buttons, open back, and the peak-a-boo fabric it reveals!
Here’s one you can do with your kids! Perfect for dress-up or every day wear, this Feather Headband is adorable and insanely easy to make.
Last but clearly not least, here’s one for the moms! The Trompe L’Wow Dress puts an awesome spin on the Stepford Dress pattern with hand drawn detailing. Stemming from the French technique, “trompe l’oeil” or “deceive the eye,” this dress is aptly named. You’re sure to attract double-takes and curiosity wherever you go.
