Bunny Gift Tags/Ornaments

I made some Christmas gift tags that can be also be used an ornaments. These cute bunnies (rabbits) are a pattern from Michelle of Raspberry Rabbits that she sells on Craftsy. These are all made using wool and embroidery stitches. They got a bit wonky around the edges because I decided to zigzag around the tags about 3 times, so the edges were no longer real crisp. I might do the edges differently if I make any more.
I put this tag on the gift I gave my daughter. She has a real black (boy) bunny and I knew she would like this and she did! I didn't want to embroider a face on this one.
I made 6 tags in all. 3 boys and 3 girls. The tag at the top in the middle I added a yarn loop to hang on the package and the tree later. I did that to all of these as I put them on the packages.
I used an old felted sweater for the background of this tag.
The aqua sweater on this bunny was an old sweater that felted a little.
The background plaid wool was some wool yardage I had.
The background chevron wool came from some yardage I had. I cut his coat out of a plaid fabric, so it looks like a belt.

  1. Those are adorable! I think I would have to start making gift tags now in order to have them ready for next Christmas. I can just picture a tree filled with bunnies!

  2. Before reading I thought you were preparing for Easter. Double duty maybe, eh? These are so adorable. I love that you used actual sweaters in their construction.

  3. These are really adorable! I always think I'm going to make some sort of awesomely great tags for my gifts, but inevitably I run out of time and just use the cheap stick on labels :(

  4. Adorable gift tags, Daryl. No one will throw these gift tags away. They could be used as bag tags, amongst other things.

  5. How beautiful! I love that you used wool for the background and coats. I must say that the one with the belt is my favourite although they all are charming. Very inspiring! Pinned.

  6. Those are too cute. I like the idea someone above had of filling a whole tree with them! I could also see them on display in January for winter but not Christmas decor.
