  • Easter Bunny

    Hopefully to be part of my Easter range. She's got lavender filled arms & legs, so she's not aimed at the tinies. The bunny is all new fabrics, a very soft touchable faux suede, but all her clothes are made from vintage cottons & linens. What do you think?

          Thats lovely - how do you do the nose? I assume it's hand stitched? How long does it take you? It looks great!! I like the idea of reusing vintage materials - it's something I want to do.

            Baggy draws...

            ......think her bloomers are a bit long in the leg, but I can shorten them.

            Her nose is just satin stitch using embroidery silk. Seperating all the strands before putting them back together - I used 3 - gives a smoother finish. It's very quick only takes minutes.

            The whole bunny took a while though. I can make the bunny in a day or so, stuffing evenly is the time consuming bit. The clothes take longer, especially if I'm working from a picture rather than a pattern. After I've done a design once I'm ok, and can work at speed.

            I've got a boy bunny halfway through - I'm working on his shirt & trousers to go with a cricket sweater I knitted a while back. Not sure after the Ashes that anyone will want to buy him......

                You could probably send boy bunny off to the Ashes and he would probably do better than we did!!

                  Busking....

                  I suppose I could send him off to play in the sun, if his girlfriend gets her act together and manages to earn a fair whack at her busking......

                  ......if she manages that, I'm giving up crafts. I'll go busking instead!

                        Not Really....

                        ....I considered doing Bunnies for children, but the health & safety regs are horrendous. Although, I think she is up to the safety standards now. The other thing is that I'm not sure parents would want to pay for what would be just another cuddly toy. I sell these at £20, which is barely breaking even as they are very time consuming.

                        Apologies, by the way, for not noticing your post on here!
