watermelon bunny


Another cute bunny from one of my patterns, knit by acornbud. I love how just a small change in how you make the face, or where you place the ears, can give a toy such a unique look and personality. This bunny has a beautiful watermelon coloured sweater too. Sometimes I wish I knit more socks, so I would have left-over bits of yarn to make pretty sweaters for my toys. (that quilted pillow in the background is gorgeous too, isn't it?)

I've been having a good rest out at my sister's place. I've been out in the sun gardening and dog walking. I spent a little time sewing, trying to figure out how to make fabric versions of my toys. That project is on hold until I am back in my own sewing room, and have a little more time to experiment. I've also been knitting a lot, mostly working on a new pattern. Something a little simpler and quicker, and meant for toddlers. Once I get it written up, I'll be contacting a few people to test knit it for me. I guess I should write up that list of volunteers first - I'm so lazy about things like that :)

That sweater yarn is gorgeous i love the colours.
I can't wait to see the sewn version of your toys,they'll be so cute, unfortunately i don't know how to sew so i'll just have to appreciate their cuteness from afar!

the bunny and the pillow are beautiful. Am I correct in thinking that the pillow has a hawaiian motif on it?
