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.

A Single Yellow Primrose

You may recall that at the start of the year I shared a Mary Jane's Tearoom rabbit called 'Primrose', which I had made for my 'bestie'.  I have at last got around to showing you the 'Primrose Rabbit' I had made for myself.

My friend named her Primrose Rabbit 'Dulcie' (here she is with my Primrose Rabbit).  They look so sweet together, don't you agree?

Where Dulcie is dressed in shades of pink, Primrose is all in yellow, from her hair slides to her Mary Jane shoes.  

As you can see, I made three of the knitted flowers so she can wear them in her 'hair' or as a brooch or pin.

  All of her clothes are made of 4 ply cotton.

The jumper has a sweet primrose design on the chest and a darker checkered boarder around the cuffs and waist.

(I took a close-up so you can see the flower better.)

Her knickerbockers have a picot edge and a slit in the back for her tail to go through ....

 ... as indeed do her knickers.

I had one of my little artistic moments with her knickers and added a small floral motif around the legs.

Her Mary Jane style shoes have a strap and matching tiny button fastening.

The hair slide/brooch has three pink seed pearls at the centre.  I stitched each to a pin so they can be moved around - I currently have one fastened at her waist to stop her jumper riding up.  I am sure I do not know what they get up to when I am not looking but every time I turned around her jumper was halfway up her chest!

She is made of 100% alpaca wool and she stands approximately 15.5 inches high (40cm) in her stocking feet ...

... and has a great big fluffy tail.

You probably spotted that Primrose also has stripy stockinged legs, these are made in double knot cotton..


Some of the other patterns I have made from this series are:-

    1. You are so kind, you always leave such lovely comments. I never change the name of my rabbits, but perhaps I should call this one Summer!

      Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Oh my, oh my, you have totally nailed these rabbits and their amazing wardrobes. I'm sure I am not the only one who thinks you should go into business! The colours are fabulous and I love all the little details, especially the hair slide. xxx

    1. Thank you my friend.

      I confess, I love these Mary Jane Tearoom rabbits and bears, I have literally just finished my last rabbit pattern - I haven't even had time to photograph him yet. There is another set of patterns for slightly smaller bears, which I shall have to try next. The Little Cotton Rabbits are fun to make but these are much larger and more sophisticated all round - they also take me quite a bit longer to make.

      Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
