Johnny Flopperstein and some other fun stuff!

Hola from fler!
We received more flowers this weekend so I thought I would share before getting started! LOVE ORANGE!!!

I love this pic! Hard to imagine it is 5 years old!!!
One of my besties, second one in from the right (Heather) next to me, asked for some Threads of Fler for her sister's baby shower. BUT OF COURSE!!!

Their little's gender is going to be a surprise at the delivery, but I knew her nursery colors (Grey and White with splashes of Aqua and Tangerine....SOME OF MY FAVs...hello new dining room!!!).

This was a really fun gift to put fun!
Now, I know what you are thinking...TOTALLY not her nursery colors, but I fell IN LOVE with this fabric from The Little Fabric Shop (click on button in right side of blog for hyperlink to store). The collection is called Pinella's Journey. Our home has big plans for this collection...stay tuned!

I began with making a couple burp cloths and a bum cover. The bum cover tutorial can be found at: MADE.

A few detailed shots!

And now for my FAV project I think to date!!!


I found this "Baby Binky Bunny" on Etsy at MMMCrafts. I started with more of the traditional concept as shown in the PDF, but that's not my style to "stay between the lines".

I mixed things up!
I used grey houndstooth material with an orange quilt remnant. Normal cotton tail???  FORGET IT...we went with aqua! Mr. Flopperstein is technically gender neutral for Marla's little AND he's in suit with her nursery colors.

Little Johnny slept through the whole assembly process! What a sweet Little. Also, no buttons on his diaper...don't want Marla's little to possibly choke. We went with embroidery in place of buttons.

Johnny Flopperstein ready for some stuffing...Oh, I LOVE HIM!!! I mean, I really do...he is sooo precious! Tim is a HUGE fan too. In fact, Tim is who named him...I couldn't agree more with the perfect name!
Ok, Marla can change it if she likes, but to us, he'll always be Johnny Flopperstein!

Look at that cute bum! I reinforced all his ears, legs and arms with extra stitching to last many years of love and giggles.

Johnny all stuffed and ready to go to his new home. Can you believe it, HE IS STILL SLEEPING!?!?!

No bunny is complete without their signature cotton tail! Aqua of course!

Tomorrow Johnny Flopperstein sets out on his voyage with burp cloths and a bum cover to Atlanta, GA. I certainly hope he is loved at his new home. We send him and the goods with lots of love and hopes for many snuggles and giggles.

Good-bye Johnny!



  1. Fler, he is the CUTEST EVER!!! I LOVE HIM!!! so retro looking! I'm certain he will feel at home in his nursery! Marla will love him!! ......also love the name!
