Farmer Boy Bunny

Growing up my favourite book was (...and still is) Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder...
Something about the story of young Almanzo Wilder growing up on a big farm in New York State gripped me, and I must have read it at least a dozen times!

While we are on the subject of farmers, I just had to share a picture of this little farmer boy bunny I created for an Etsy customer this week!

Isn't he sweet with his little denim dungarees and red gingham cotton shirt?  This was my first time making a shirt for a bunny of this size, and I am quite happy with how it turned out...{{smiles}}

This navy blue star fabric I bought to use in our baby's sea-themed quilt, and I used leftover fabric to make this rabbit's ears, pocket and the cuffs on his dungarees...  I added little buttons to the dungaree straps as well.

Stay tuned for some Farmer Boy bunnies coming soon to my Etsy shoppe!

And remember, I offer customized orders, so if you are wanting something in particular, please feel free to send me an Etsy conversation and I will do my utmost to create something just for YOU!

Blessings on your Sunday, friends!

Little Bunny Blue...

I am simply delighted to be sharing this little boy bunny with you today, dear readers...

I have been wanting to create a boy version of my Miss Lettice Rabbits for quite some time now, and this week I had the lovely chance of doing so when I received a request for boy bunny from an Etsy customer!

What do you think of this adorable boy bunny?  Instead of making a frilly dress and pantaloons, I made him some simple dungarees with a cross-stitch heart ''patch'' on the one leg.  
The bib is in coordinating blue fabric and boasts a sweet little pocket.  I did add a little blue anglaise at the bottom of each leg of the pants...just for some extra charm!  {{smiles}}

I hope to add a few more boy bunnies to my Etsy shoppe very soon...

Have a wonderful, creative week further, friends!

Ribbon Taggy Baby Play Balls

A little while ago, a lady asked me to make her toddler a baby ball with ribbon taggies for extra interest...  


I thought it would be fun to make something new and sweet, and happily agreed...

I spent this morning playing at my craft table with different fabric scraps and ribbons, and here are two blue baby balls I made, with more coming hopefully soon...  

  I think a few pink balls would be lovely now, don't you?

I currently do not have these ribbon taggy baby balls available on my Etsy Shoppe, but do stop by and see the other baby gifts I have in stock!

Have you tried anything new in your craft room recently?

Pink Rose...Miss Lettice

Hello lovely readers...happy Sunday to you!

Meet this new and sweet Miss Lettice Rabbit…I am simply in love with her little frock and pantaloons!  

I love pink and roses, and simply had to make her clothing out of some gorgeous new fabric in my collection…{{smiles}}

This Miss Lettice is in my stock of market items, but I am adding some other lovelies to my Etsy shoppe, so do be certain to stop by…perhaps you will find the perfect little gift for a special person!

These smaller, faceless bunnies are also available on Etsy, and make such sweet little gifts, especially with Easter swiftly approaching…

Wishing each of you a delightfully creative week ahead!

Patchwork and Embroidery Bliss...

Oh, how delighted I am to be sharing a picture of this finished cushion with you today, my dear friends...  
I have had it in my work box for simply too long, and today I decided to finish the embroidery I had begun early last year!  

The patchwork I did quite some time ago...I fell in love with these sweet fabric designs, and I think that they work so well together!
 Crocheted stars and heart and flower buttons add a bit of extra charm and dimension...

Now...I have another cushion similar to this one which is almost done too, and I would dearly love to finish it as well - can't wait to pop them on my stall at the market this coming Saturday...{{Smiles}}

I am hoping to add a couple of these special handmade cushions to my Etsy shoppe soon...each one is unique, and I can custom make cushions do stay ''posted''!

This particular cushion measures about 10" x 19" and is lovingly handmade with the utmost attention to detail by me...

Have you completed any unfinished crafty projects recently...?

Wishing you a wonderfully creative Tuesday!
