Polly Poinsettia

by greenrabbitdesigns

Poinsettia’s always seem to feature in one of my posts in the run up to Christmas and I seem to make them in some form or other, a brooch in this post and a bag in this one.

This year of course I have made a little poinsettia bunny whose name is Polly!


Made in 100% merino wool, Polly wears a poinsettia print skirt and a green linen/cotton mix yarn cardigan with a little handmade poinsettia button and as with all my bunnies has a little ear decoration.

Holly (my last bunny) and Polly are sisters and I’m pleased to say Polly is off to live in the same family as Holly!!

This poinsettia is from last Christmas and this is the first time I have ever had a poinsettia survive until the next year. After last Christmas when it started to loose it’s leaves (as they do and never seem to re-cover them), I cut it all back, there was just a little stump and I then put it in the greenhouse where it has remained until now. During the summer it slowly began to grow back and it’s looking quite healthy now, whether I’ll get any flowers or not I don’t know but we’ll see!

I also made a new poinsettia brooch too using cotton yarns and faux pearls. So it’s been a bit of a poinsettia week around these parts!

Well here we are almost at the end of another week, I hope you all have had a good one and I wish you all a lovely weekend and to my friends in the US, Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Thanks as always for dropping by and leaving your wonderful comments, I do love it when you do! 🙂

Polly is adorable, so glad that she’s off to live with her sister. It’s a good job that Poinsettia doesn’t live in my house, I can’t seem to keep houseplants alive.
This week has flown by hasn’t it?
Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

She is so very cute… and lovely that she already has a home to go to.

One of the many things I love about your rabbits, Vivienne is their open armed posture . They seem to be cheerily encouraging you to give them a hug. Polly is so sweet and, as usual, I simply love your attention for detail.

Happy end of week to you. I am fortunate to see the sun shining on this day when I turn 44. Eek!

What a sweet sister for Holly! She is beautiful and I know she’ll have a good home in Surrey.

We’re enjoying Thanksgiving today. Then I’ll be in full Christmas mode, starting tomorrow.

Best wishes to you and your family, Vivienne,

I am glad that Polly is going to be reunited with Holly! I love all her coordinating accessories. The poinsettia plant looks so healthy Vivienne. I am tempted to buy one this year and keep it in the greenhouse for the following year too if it can look as good as yours. A lovely seasonal brooch you have made too! x

Well hello sweet Miss Polly, you are really going to love it over here. My Mum is as big a fan of Christmas as I am. I am sure these 2 sister bunnies may get up to mischief together:0)
Vivienne you have created another beauty. Thank you SO much.

Your poinsettia is fab, mine just die every time…cacti are all I can grow indoors. Now I think this year I may have even dragged you into starting your Christmas excitement way before 1st December ;0) I so love your pre Christmas makes and posts, keep sharing. Enjoy your evening, it has turned so windy here. Take care,
Jane (aka Mrs Christmas XXXXXX)

Oh how wonderful – two of your darling bunnies in one home! Love that brooch – very perfect for the winter coat.

Such a sweet, festive bunny Vivienne. How nice she’s going to join her sister. Have a great weekend, batten down the hatches! x

What a sweetie she is, I’m sure she’ll be much loved.

Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas to me unless I have a red flowering poinsettia in the house, a tradition my mother-in-law passed on. I’ve never managed to get one to last the year round though, well done!

Polly is adorable! Your bunnies always look so cute and very cuddly too 🙂 I also admire the clever poinsettia brooch you made, and being able to keep your poinsettia plant alive all year round! Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Vivienne!

Congrats on your poinsettia making it through a year! I adore Polly and the poinsettia brooch is very lovely, too! Have a great weekend, Vivienne xo Karen

You really have green fingers to get the Poinsettia to survive a second year.
Polly is just so cute. You always find the perfect fabric/yarn/trims for your bunny outfits.
The crochet flower is beautiful.
Happy weekend!

Polly is super cute and perfect for this time of year! I have given up on attempting to have Poinsettias in the house as I always kill them before we even get to the ‘big day’, no idea why! I love the crochet brooch as well. Perfect as always. Bethx
