Soft toys Rabbit and Kitten dolls.

Sweet rabbit and kitten soft dolls

The weather here in this part of the world has been wet cold and miserable, so I just tuck up in the sewing room, heater and music on.
I have actually sold some of my rabbits which is pretty cool as they were threatening to take over.

I'm letting you into my sewing room, as you can see I'm none too tidy but oh so creative, and I have fun.

The little kitten face ready to go

The dolls are ready for dressing.

I found this beautiful cotton fabric in our local craft store, note the french words.


These Rabbits are made using sweet pink and blue checks with contrasting floral for the dresses.

I try and have the hand sewing and stuffing ready to do when I sit down in the evenings.

Little blue and white Rabbit dolls made from French fabric.

I do get attached to them, such a lot of work to get them just right.

Little projects

Little softy Lamb.

I have made this little soft toy as a gift for an overseas friend, as sheep out number people here in New Zealand it seemed appropriate.

If you look you can see I have used fabric with sheep on, I thought it so cute.

Embroidery projects.

Needle cases.

Silk embroidered trinket box

Silk on silk trinket box.

This little box is my latest project, silk ribbon embroidery on a cream silk fabric box, all handmade. 

I so enjoyed the embroidery part of this project but making up the box was very fiddly.

Linen Rabbit softies.

My latest Rabbits.

Just having fun making these, after much re cutting of my pattern I am at last pleased with the results.
I have started using the plastic safety eyes, I get a more consistent result with the faces.

I bought this lovely pure Linen fabric from my local fabric store and mixed and matched.

See the detail piping on their little romper shorts.

This batch for my Granddaughters, I have used left over fabric from dresses I have made for them.
