Hoppin right along...

except for one small glitch...
I cannot come up with a name for this poor little missy.
Tis my job for the evening as I watch American Idol and then the Olympics...
to give this little girl a name. And I promise I won't name her Mrs. Cowell!!!!
Paper clay & cloth are used for the construction of the body. Pattern will have easy to follow, illustrated with step by step photos of the construction of the clay head.

Sisal fibers make for life-like whiskers
&
strawberry necklace adds extra charm

Centuries ago the clothing didn't have pockets so women would wear "ditty bags" or pockets around their waists to hold their important belongings. This sweet little rabbit has seeds stored in her pocket. Pocket is constructed from 40 count linen with a sweet little floral motif stitched over 2 threads...so sweet!


And of course,

all pretty ladies wear pretty little shoes...

shoes that lace up to their knees!

Pattern coming soon...
watch for further details & release date!



With thy Needle & Thread,
Brenda

Beautiful bunny! Can't wait for the release of this pattern! :-)

First name that came to mind when I seen her is Sophie. So, why not name her "Miss Sophie"?

Very Pretty. I think you should name her, Mrs. Rabbit as in Peter Rabbits mom. I am sure that there would be carrot seeds or lettuce seeds in her pocket.
