Wednesday WIP: Miss Maggie Rabbit

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Miss Maggie Rabbit is skipping along. We're nearly there, in fact.


She has whiskers and rosy cheeks.


She has a small fluffy tail (not on the original pattern, but I thought that really, a bunny ought to have a tail). I know, this is an almost indecent photograph close-up of Miss Maggie Rabbit's behind. But how else do you show tail details. *Blush.


She has a set of laced-up boots, perfect for a-walking. Incidentally, she doesn't quite stand on her own, so all a-walking needs to be done accompanied by my vase, it seems.


She has large floppy ears, made with pieces of vintage linen from Granny's closet.


And, she very nearly has a completed dress made from light and floaty cotton lawn fabric. 

After sewing all the bits together for the dress, realised that I didn't have any thin elastic which you need to finish off the neckline and the sleeves. 

Everything else is done, though.

  1. She's very pretty, especially her ears. And soon you'll be able to knit her a cardi.

    1. She has turned out rather well! There is a capelet (!) included in the pattern, so it may well be next on my to-do list.
