A Rabbit in a Capelet!

I am working on a rabbit for baby Lucy. My sewing machine has packed a sad, so I am only able to do hand sewing projects at the moment ... I quite like hand sewing.


I bought the pdf pattern from Alicia Paulson and the wool mix grey felt from Spotlight. The ear lining is from in my stash and when the sewing machine is better, I will whip up her dress from this fabric also from the stash ... both are from my paisley phase.


I also managed to knit Maggie the Rabbit a capelet. It's been ages since I did any knitting, but it all came back. This is probably as sophisticated as my knitting gets. I have bought a pattern for a cool cardi for the rabbit with holes in the hood for her ears. I will take that home to Mum in the hols for her to knit!


Now onto her turquoise felt boots!

PS Still no sign of small camera or big camera's cord. I did find big camera's second battery though.

  2. So cute! My machine had a bit of a cranky day yesterday, but after I decided to clean all the lint out has come right again. Love the rabbit and the knitting.

    1. I still have a thing for paisley, but I don't buy it as much as I used to.

    1. V easy pattern. The only part that needed real thinking were the boots - more pictures in that section would have been good. But at the end of the day, not rocket science!

    2. Excellent, rocket science isn't really my thing.
