Home high days & holidays malina


by greenrabbitdesigns


Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!

This is my new little girl and her name is Malina.

Malina means raspberry in Russian! Quite a pretty name, don’t you think?


Malina is made from a mixture of raspberry pink merino wool and a cream mohair mix yarn. When the two were crocheted together it reminded me of raspberry ripple ice-cream and this is why I chose the raspberry fabric for her skirt which then led me to look for a name connected to raspberries, hence Malina!

Malina is off to her new home soon!

A pretty name for a pretty little bunny. I love the effect that the two yarns make when mixed together.
Love the Cath Kidston bags – the bird print is lovely.
Happy Tuesday to you too.

Happy Belated Birthday! Love little Malina and her pretty green dress and the yarn combination for her is great. Yes! Raspberry Ripple! Exactly!

Hi Vivienne, a Happy Belated Birthday to you!
Looks like you were spoilt with some lovely pressies, as you deserve to be!
Malina is such a pretty bunny, love the combination of wools you’ve used, and as usual you have made everything else beautifully to match – just like raspberry ripple I agree.
I have so much catching up to do with you Vivienne, and once the weather changes at the weekend I shall look forward to doing just that, but for the moment we are busy painting outside whilst the weather holds – dodging the showers!
In the meantime have a good week.
love Gill xx

Malina is a lovely two tone bunny! I like how you choose names with meaning for your bunnies. I spy some lovely birthday gifts too. Have a lovely week Vivienne. x

She is a beauty Vivienne and I agree about the raspberry ripple effect..yummy. It’s a great idea to crochet with 2 colours. I love her little matching fabric dress, so sweet. I am glad you had a super birthday and I spotted some great gifts there ;0) “See” you in a week and take care my dear,

Aww she’s cute, Malina is such a pretty name. Happy belated birthday Vivienne, apologies for missing the big day. I’m glad you had a good one x

Malina is a very special little bunny, I think. There is something about that combination of yarns you used to make her sweet body and face which has won me over. And, as usual, her clothes are wonderfully trimmed. I think you must have a magician living in your home who, when you snap your fingers, scuttles in with THE perfect fabric, buttons, and trims for your current rabbit 🙂

Oh, and most importantly, A VERY, VERY happy belated birthday, Vivienne. May the following year bring you much joy, a short winter, and many trips to France 🙂

Hello dear Vivienne,

Ooh… such pretty girl there again, Malina is lovely! And lovely are those b-days gifts too, I wouldn’t mind growing my tiny CK-collection with those beauties 🙂

Raspberries have to be my favourite fruit! And Malina looks absolutely delicious too 🙂

I always enjoy seeing a new bunny debut and Malina is just as pretty as her name.
I have some of that Peace on Earth fabric her skirt is made from:)
You received some lovely birthday gifts. Of course I am very envious of the CK bird print bag!

Vivienne, Keep enjoying your presents and making bunnies!! Malina is gorgeous. I’d love some of that berry fabric. Thanks for sharing her Russian/Czech/Polish name…..my family (on my Dad’s side) has a strong Czech connection!!
