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 Little Rabbit

I thought I would give you a rest from my ramblings for a few days, did you miss me?  I missed your company, thank you for being here today.

Do you remember Lucy's Teddy Bear Monkey?  Well, for Christmas, Lucy received a friend for her monkey, say hello to Lucy's Teddy Bear Rabbit.

Bunny Girl in a Dotty Dress is one of Julie William's patterns from her 'Little Cotton Rabbits' range, which is available from Ravelry. 

Before you write to tell me that this rabbit is wearing a dress with a Snowman, I actually made her more than one dress, and I added a festive twist to the dots by making them look more like Christmas Baubles.

and one in pink and purple.

I wanted to make this little rabbit extra special, so I made her the slippers from Julie Williams 'Shoe Supplement', which is available free from Ravelry.  They were fiddly, but so cute - well worth the cramp I got in my fingers.

I know you like to check that I put her in underwear, so here is the proof.


I was tempted not to share the following picture because it looks for all the world like I stitched the tail off centre, but I promised you, it was in the middle.  The reason I included this photo is because I wanted to show you that this time I knitted the tail instead of making a pom pom.

Lucy got her own copy of all of the Little Cotton Rabbit clothes which went into my BFFs Advent Calender.

I hope you enjoyed this late posted Christmas present.

    1. Thank you. Lucy now has four or five of these knitted animals, and with this little lot, she should be able to have fun playing dress-up with them.

      We are are slowly getting there, thanks so much. Still have some of the symptoms like a hacking cough and horrendous headache. I just wish I could stay awake for a while!

  2. Where do I start?? This is cuteness overload and then some. Those slippers are both adorable and incredible. The baubles dress is inspired and it goes without saying that I love the snowman one too. Xxx

    1. Many, many thanks for all of your lovely comments. I was a little worried there for a while, I was concerned that you may have also come down with a nasty bug, so pleased you are OK.
