Budding Ballerinas

There is always something so dreamy and romantic about the ballet and here are two little sisters who dream of performing at Covent Garden although the bottom of the garden is more likely to be their venue!

Margot Bunny

She is based on Debi Birkin’s Bunty Bunny.

She certainly likes to practice her moves!!

I knitted the body of the rabbit in White and made three little skirts attching each on top of the other to give a tutu effect

Her little Ballet wrap keeps her warm once she has cooled down after her excercises!

Darcy Bunny

I did say these rabbits are addictive so had to make another one in differeny colours.

Darcy is a cutie as well, she is a lovely grey bunny and loves her pink an lilac outfit.

DSCN4570Any thing Margot can do, she can do as well, nothing like a bit of rivalry to spurr you on!!

Think these bunnies are lovely gifts for little girls who have similar dreams of  becoming ballerinas!!

On the same theme I’ve finished a little Baby Ballet Wrap

DSCN4554

This is an 18″ chest so should fit a little girl up to 6 months. The inner wrap is secured by a button

DSCN4561 and the outer wrap fastens with a pretty pink polka dotted ribbon.

The matching hat and shoes also have the polka dot theme.

Off now to finish some dolls I’ve been working on
