I’m trying to get a few of my long-standing WIPs finished off. I started this little bunny some time last year. The knitting was very quick but there are lots of small pieces to join together, which I’ve been putting off.
Last night I started sewing her together. So far I’ve completed the head and face which took me most of an evening!
I had to have a few goes at the embroidery before I was happy with her face. It’s not perfect but not bad for a novice toy maker. Looking at the photo, I may re-do one of her eyes!
She’s knitted in Drops Karisma, which is 100 percent superwash wool. It’s listed on Ravelry as a DK yarn but it is actually a sport weight yarn. It is slightly fuzzy which gives the bunny a nice finish.
The pattern is Bunny girl in a dotty dress by Julie Williams of Little Cotton Rabbits, which you can buy on Ravelry. I’ve been a fan of her cute animals for a while now and would recommend you check out her Ravelry Store out if you like making toy animals. They are unbelievably cute.
One thing I will point out though is that the rabbit is knitted on small needles and is knitted all in the flat, so there is a lot of seaming to do. If you don’t like sewing things together you might want to try a different pattern. The pattern however is incredibly detailed and helpful and I think that there is a Ravelry group if you do get stuck.
I’m pretty pleased with my efforts so far. Isn’t she the cutest thing!
Hopefully I’ll have her finished by the end of the week to share with you.
I’ve included a link to my Ravelry project page here.
I’ve love to hear from you if you’ve made any of the Little Cotton Rabbits or perhaps if you can recommend any other cute toy patterns I should check out.
