Avril Collage

It’s bunny time again, I know I’m slightly earlier than usual this month with my rabbits but don’t the months just fly by!

This is Avril which is of course French for April and seems very appropriate for the first of the April Girls!

Dottie Collage

Monochrome was the theme for the second April Girl, with the obvious name of Dottie.

Sugar Collage

This little girl is Sugar and she takes her name from the lovely fabric collection Milk, Sugar and Flower by the talented Elea Lutz. I think the fabric in Sugar’s dress is probably my most favourite fabric ever.

Lacey Collage

With lace doilies all over her dress, a cardie with some knitted lace and two buttons with lace patterns this little one couldn’t be named anything else but Lacey.

Jay Collage

This little teal bunny is Jay and with bluebirds on her dress and a bluebird on her cardie, she just had to be named after a bluebird!

Daisybelle Collage

For a while I have been keen to make a little Dutch rabbit. I once had a beautiful little Dutch bunny called Daisy, she was the sweetest little thing. Early on in my rabbit making days I made a white Daisy Daydream bunny and as every bunny I make has a different name I couldn’t call this one Daisy in memory of my little bunny, so opted for Daisybelle instead. I think though that there will be more Dutch bunnies, I just love those cute faces.

So that’s all the bunnies for April, they will be listed in my Etsy shop tonight, Wednesday 22nd April at 10pm (BST). More details about them can be found here, please remember they are collectible items only and not suitable for children under 14 years.

Just before I go I want to share the lovely parcel which arrived for me recently in the post. I was extremely lucky to win some beautiful gifts in Helen’s recent giveaway. The sweetest little beaded birds in my favourite colour, a selection of gorgeous buttons and some delicious chocolate, all perfect and very ‘me’! Helen and I have been blog friends for quite a while now, her blog is an absolute treat and so inspiring. Thank you so much Helen for my gifts I am so thrilled with them. I’m sure you all have visited Helen’s blog but if not please go and pay her visit you certainly won’t be disappointed. www.helenphilipps.blogspot.co.uk

As always thank you all so much for your visits and lovely comments.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 🙂

they are gorgeous. I can see why they are collectible’s. I would love to learn how to knit one for my grand children.

Welcome to the April girls…what beauties they all are but any bunny who has Daisy in her name has to be a favourite of mine ;0) So mahy lovely details as always Vivienne. I was so excited to see your name when Helen drew her giveaway winner. It’s lovely to see someone win who has been with her since the beginning. Your prize is just delightful and perfect for you my dear. Enjoy your Wednesday, it’s clouded over here this afternoon xx

Another fine “batch of bunnies”! The little Dutch bunny is very sweet. As always, I’ve enjoyed seeing the bunnies, fabrics, sweaters, ribbons and buttons combine into making such an original keepsake. The last blog, with your “20 facts” that most people don’t know about you, was fun to read.

Hi “V” What a fabulous litter of bunnies. I will adopt them all! If only ; )
They will hop out of your shop. They go so fast, I count myself lucky to have my two, although I would love another!
Happy Hoppy Day to you, xoRobin

Jay, Sugar and Daisybelle are my favourites this time round! I really like the Dutch rabbit’s little face! Well done on winning Helen’s giveaway. She really did have some super prizes! x

Beautiful bunnies as always. …..and a lucky win!

Helen Philipps April 22, 2015 - 3:16 pm

Such a sweet collection of bunnies today, Vivienne! I think my favourite is Daisybelle…..though it is always so hard to choose just one! I am sure they will be gone in a moment of being put in your shop! I’m so glad your birdies, buttons and chocolate arrived safely, loved your picture of them 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful week!

I love visiting and seeing the beautiful work of this designer. Her bunnies do have a fee and you can find them in her Etsy Shop…she will be posting them for sale this evening sometime. 🙂

You made a lot of bunnies this month! I love them all, but especially Avril and Lacy. I enjoyed seeing your winnings from Helen, I love her beautiful blog too. Hope you have a good weekend, Vivienne!

Your April girls are looking gorgeous as ever and I’m never surprised just how quickly they find their new homes!…. .Congratulations too Vivienne on being the very lucky winner of Helen’s beautiful little green birds and all those lovely treats too…x.

As always your little bunnies are gorgeous Vivienne and usually I would find it hard to pick a favourite but this time I have to say the Dutch bunny stands out for me – I used to have a little Dutch bunny called Tulip and she was such a sweetie. Congratulations on your lovely win from Helen. Happy weekend. Jane xx

I’m going with Sugar this time – the fabric of her dress is just the cutest thing. And I love the little buttons.

Lovely April bunnies, V, Dottie is my favourite, although I do love the Dutch Bunny too! (I hadn’t heard of Dutch Bunnies before, I just had to google them). Bxx
