Meet Lavender Rose Rabbit

by greenrabbitdesigns

I would like to introduce you all to Lavender Rose Rabbit.

She came about when I picked up the leftover yarn from my Lavender Rose brooches which I made last week and began crocheting a bunny head (as you do)!! I had no real intention to make a bunny it just happened.

It’s no secret how much I love rabbits and I have knitted many in the past when my daughter was young using various patterns including many from Debbie Bliss. I’m a huge fan of Julie’s from Little Cotton Rabbits, who knits the most beautiful rabbits and other gorgeous little creatures. I also love the work of Susan from Mary Jane’s Tearoom and Beth from The Linen Cat and Helen from Helen Philipps makes wonderful little buns too. I have never crocheted a bunny before until now and I have to say crocheting lends itself well to toy making.

Lavender Rose has been keeping me company in the greenhouse while I sow some seeds.

And she has definitely been keeping an eye on those rascal cats in the garden!!!

Will I be crocheting any more little bunnies? Well I’ll have to see about that, it was my own pattern which I made up as I went along but rather foolishly I never wrote anything down! I’m no seamstress and even though it’s not very big making that dress was a fiddly business. However I’m not ruling it out as I can see more little creatures in my head, we’ll just have to see!!

Happy Thursday everyone, the sun has managed to show it’s face for the first time this week, hope it’s shining on you too! 🙂

Your little bunny is so adorable Vivienne! I love her dress and little cotton tail. You are very clever to make the pattern up as you went along.
It must be the season for bunnies as I fell in love with some I saw on Helen’s blog. I had to have a go at knitting one for myself and am enjoying it a lot.
I see more bunnies on my horizon also 🙂

Well I think your crocheted bunny is a success, she is so very cute. xx

How lucky you are to see the sun, it has been misty and now cloudy here in Cheshire today.

What a poppet Lavender Bunny is. Perfectly Spring like. That pic of her in the watering can is too sweet.

That is one lovely bunny, Vivienne, and I think that lavender blue (my favorite shade!) is just perfect for her! And I would love to see more little bunnies, a pink one would be… 😉 And don’t I know how it goes with “I just knit a bit and then write everything down” *ahem* it just doesn’t happen… I have learned that lesson too!

Have a wonderful Thursday and sunny weekend soon too!

What a little sweetie she is Vivienne. I love that little tail peeping out and I am sure she is enjoying watching you sew you seeds. How clever to make her with no pattern! I am so glad the sunshine has reached you at last it is a glorious day here and I have been humming in my studio…bliss. I need to get back out there now!

Well I think Miss Lavender Rose is most charming. I’m sure she and the kitties will have many lively conversations over tea in the garden and I suspect that she would be very grateful for any new friends that may turn up. What Fun!!!

She’s lovely! I think she will be lonely though if you don’t make any more!

Clever Vivienne! This little spring bunny is a gardener I see: the very best sort of rabbit, I say and so very pretty too.

Amanda March 15, 2012 - 4:57 pm

Oh she is lovely!!! I think you must make more friends for her 🙂

Helen Philipps March 15, 2012 - 5:03 pm

Oh I love your cute little bunny! Her little face has such character and the colour is very pretty. She looks sweet in the garden…..and you know what bunnies are like….there are usually more than one around! Maybe your crochet hook will be busy again soon making a little friend???

Oh my, how sweet is she. But I do think she needs a sister, Violet May perhaps?

Lavender Rose Bunny is adorable! That is on my list to crochet a rabbit, I’m not sure my crochet skills will be up to it though.

Awwww, Lavender Rose I could kiss your sweet nose! She is lovely Vivienne. Thanks so much for your kind words xxx

Oh Vivienne, little Lavender Rose is so sweet, this really made me smile. You’re as mad as me with Bob the bunny, photographing her helping you in the garden! What a cute cotton tail! That wool is just the prettiest shade and looks different to the flowers you made but maybe it’s the natural light on these pics.
You must make some more for your shop as they’re fab! Have a good weekend, xx

She’s lovely!

Hi Viv cute bunny!

When your posts pop up on my dashboard, they always show a horrible yellow smily face (emoticon), You probably have some security thing switched on? I say this because I am very much drawn to images posted in my dashboard and your lack of photo is making me skip by your posts.
It’s not intentional, I just wanted to point it out.

Well done on making a lovely lavender rose bunny! Extra congratulations on making the pattern up by yourself! x

Kate March 18, 2012 - 3:20 pm

She’s adorable Vivienne, surely you can’t stop at one .. at the very least there should be a green one!

Just found your blog – the rabbit is adorable!!! I seriously need to learn how to follow crochet patterns (knitting is so much easier… imo) 😀
