Rabbit, Rabbit, Bunny, Bunny

Recently I have made a couple of rabbits for friends for Easter...

The one I finished this morning is a Tilda pattern, am not sure about the nose as I think it looks a little canine but I know that the young lady who I made it for will love it.  On balance, I think it might be a hare because of its lovely long ears... although I have not seen it box yet, but I reckon that dress might be hiding a Lonsdale belt beneath it.

Now this is one I saw in a magazine and my fingers just itched to get it made, it's actually made from recycled jeans and a fleece picked up from a local charity shop. I would add just one caveat, when you are making it up, make sure that the legs have faded equally when you cut out your pattern pieces.
I have another pattern to make bunnies which I hope to finish during the week and will share with you soon.

Anyway, I am pleased with these little chaps as I had lost my my making mojo for a couple of weeks, so I will be editing pictures and patterns over the week and making up for lost time.

Now to get me back on track, I will be going over to Wendy's HandmadeMonday for even more inspiration.

And all week I will be silently saying the bunny rabbit knitting rhyme... perfect garter stitch every time!

Into the Bunny Hole
Run around the tree
Out of the Bunny Hole
Away runs he!

Must be springtime with all these rabbits making an appearance. They're both lovely! I love the idea of making toys from old jeans - what a brilliant way to recycle them!

Bunnies! love 'em! The fabric on your Tilda rabbit is great - it would make up nicely into lots of different items items I think.

They are really cute! I often visit chrity shops hoping tomfind some clothes to upcycle, but never have the guts to actually try! Maybe i should bite the bullet.
I'm sure the recipient of the top rabbit will love it x

They are both lovely but have to admit a favouritism towards the second as it looks so huggable :)

Aww your bunnies are cute!! I agree that the first looks like a very handsome hare with those long ears... he's just gorgeous! I love your little up-cycled chappie too, he definitely has his own cheeky character :) x

Hare's are beautiful and have longer faces and ears, so I think you're green bunny is definitely a hare! I love the upcycled bunny too. The little rhyme is similar to one I came up with when I was teaching a friend to knit - I'd not heard the proper version anywhere before today though :-)

Gorgeous bunnies - all the more so because of them being from up-cycled goodies from a charity shop. Hope you have a good week.

The tilda bunny is beautiful. I like the fabrics you've chosen. The other little rabbit is a cute thrifty make too. I love the ears!
