Bears and Bunnies

Life now seems to be settling down to some semblance of a routine after experiencing the sad loss of my Mum. Thank you everybody for your expressions of sympathy and prayers, most of you I only know through the internet and your kindness and support have been very touching.

It was my Mum who taught me to knit all those years ago and she was always a fan of my knitting no matter how it turned out!!! So over the past couple of weeks I have picked up the needles again and managed to finish a few works in progress.

William Bear


William is a cute little bear created from one of the Mary Jane’s Tearoom patterns. I knitted the bear and his clothes in DK using 4mm for the bear and 3.75mm needles for the clothes.


He measures 17″ so a good size bear and the clothes just fit beautifully.


He looks ready for action. Just love his little boots they fit so well which is all down to the clever design of Mary Jane.

I think William would look great in any nursery and would also make a lovely gift to any collector of bears.


Jed and Jess


This little pair are also from Mary Jane’s Tearoom. They are quite small but when put together they do make a cute pair.


They are virtually the same pattern, with the girl bunny having floppy ears and a pinafore…


While the boy bunny has straight ears and a pair of breeches. They measure about eight to nine inches tall and could sit quite nicely in the corner of a crib or play pen.


Last but not least come another pair of Debi Birken rabbits.


They are based on Bunty Bunny and you can have such a lot of fun making their little outfits.


The rabbits measure 11″ and their clothes can be made from small amounts of yarn you may have left over in your stash.


Be warned these rabbits are highly addictive once you start to make them!!
