Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Lucy's Bunny

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and a big thank you for sticking with me thought my spell of blogging madness.

Yesterday I told you about my attempts to find the right size knitted toy to fit my niece's elf clothes.  This bunny is one of my failed attempts.  By failed I only mean that she was too large to fit the clothes but I really adored her, she is so sweet.

I followed the 'Little Cotton Rabbits' pattern, the only difference was that I used chunky yarn and size 3mm needles.  It was very tight on the needle and I do not think I would be tempted to make this size again.

Her dress is Kirsty's Sailboat Dress, such a fun design, especially in those nautical colours.

A quick snap of her back to show you her fabulously fluffy tail popping through her dress.  The dress is made from Double Knit yarn.

Oww, and one of her without her dress.

Finally, I have photographed her with a couple of the bunnies made in Double Knit so you can see the difference in size.



  1. Fabulous bunnies and love the cute dresses especially the little boats-thank you for your comments and I am feeling a lot better thank you

    1. Hi Carol

      I am so pleased that you are feeling a lot better, I imagine you are still feeling sore, it takes time.

      I think these little sail boats look so sweet, but then I always did like to see children in sailor suits back in the day.

  2. ARIGATOU(Thank you so much!!)
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and a prosperous new year!
    On Japanese New Year ‘s customs;
    Adults put money in a special envelope and give it to children.
    This is called “otoshidama” and many children look forward to it very much!

  3. Another gorgeous dress. Love the different blues you have used and they look stunning against the white. X

    1. Thank you, this is a really sweet rabbit and she looks lovely in this frock doesn't she? I sometimes struggle with noses but hers came as part of the pattern - made life a lot easier.
