Pinterest Party Link Up #3!

Welcome to Happy Homemaker Me's 3rd monthly Pinterest Party!

Have you tried a new pin lately?  Recipes, DIYs, fashion/beauty tips, home decor or organization ideas, it all goes here!  I'm excited to see what you have been up to :)

Is this your first time joining us?  You can read more information about our Pinterest Parties here.

This month, my project is sweet and simple.  For my first Pinterest Party project, I sewed something.  Last month, I shared a favorite recipe.  This time, I decided to crochet something for Easter.  I went through my pin boards, and found this adorable pattern to make a Marshmallow Bunny!

Doni of Whiskers & Wool shares this great pattern, along with excellent step-by-step pictures and instructions.
I made my little bunny in about 20 minutes, and I love it!

Doni made the eyes and mouth using black seed beads, but since my little Easter Bunny likes to put everything into her mouth, I altered my Marshmallow Bunny by sewing the features on using embroidery floss instead.  Our very own teether friendly version.

And I'm not kidding about the teething...

(Sorry that it doesn't taste like the real thing, Kid)

It's been a crazy month since I began teaching ESL college courses online...but I learned a few things tonight:  
a) don't leave your Pinterest Project til the night before when you have a tired baby and no good lighting to work with
b) if you're planning to take close-up photos of your project, do that before you hand it to your baby and she spits up on it.

Sigh.  It happens :)

Now it's your turn!  What have you worked on this month?  Share your pictures, victories, fails, inspirations, or simply things that you want to try!

I can't wait to see!


  1. Thank you very much for featuring my little marshmallow bunnies! And your daughter is absolutely adorable! :)

  2. What a cute project! I bet she'd love Peeps, in a few years, of course! I'm that weirdo who never really cared for Peeps. Addison loves then though.


Your sweet comments make my day! Thank you for coming to visit ♥
