Here Come the Bunnies

I have been working on some rabbits  over the past few months and I must admit a dressed bunny is definitely my knit of choice.

Poppy

This 11″rabbit knitted in DK on 4mm needles has a lovely white dress with a fair-isle poppy motif.

So she is ready to hit the town for some serious shopping.

Belinda

Her dress has a pretty check pattern, instead of a cardigan she has a little bolero…

…and again a matching bag for her shopping.

Summer

Another bunny from the same pattern, I just love playing about with different colour combinations for the outfits.

Teds in Bed

There is nothing sweeter than a little teddy bear all tucked up in bed. This project was all done in DK yarn on 4mm needles, and didn’t take long at all. The most time consuming piece was the knitting bag which was all knitted in one piece including the attached pillow.

It’s just the right size for a little girl to play with. The bear is 8 inches, her little teddy is 3 inches and the sleeping bag itself when finished is 9 inches in length.

The bear has a cute little candy striped nightdress and little bow.

The sleeping bag has a stuffed pillow at the top and appliqued bears sewn on the central panel. It was knitted in one piece, folded and sewn in place.

Both little bears fit snugly inside, all ready to be taken on a sleepover at Nana’s
