Meet Bonnie the Easter Bear and her bunny, Jellybean. They are off to live with a special little someone just in time for the holiday. Loopy and I just put the finishing touches on them this weekend. Jellybean is sewed tightly into Bonnie's arms so he won't get lost on their long journey. I really wanted to sew those two little chicks down but Loopy insisted not, she thought they might be a little scratchy and they should come off after Easter, and so that was it. They're just resting there for now but their little scratchy chick claws are hanging on to Bonnie's fur for their very lives!
Bonnie came to our studio around Valentine's Day but she was a lonely, lonely bear... no matter what we did, she was inconsolable. We just couldn't sing to her all the day long and she's one of those bears that wants to be lifted and carried around everywhere... you know the type. When Loopy suggested that Jellybean should be Bonnie's constant companion, I knew she was onto something.
Jellybean Bunny also needed someone to take care of him because you know, he got his name from eating his weight in jellybeans, (which is only problematic at this time of the year really... especially around here where the jellybeans aren't that fresh) and he is prone to awful tummy aches because of it.
Here's hoping that Bonnie and Jellybean have some fine adventures from the very day they are discovered in an Easter basket.
