FlopsyBunny

I have knitted a bunny, my first.
This is Flopsy Bunny, named for one of Peter Rabbit's good little bunny sisters.





Yarn: Simply Soft by Caron, 100% acrylic, so it is 100% washable, stuffed with polyester fiberfill.

Pattern: Lovable Toys in Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.

The jumper is my own design.

Just sooo CUTE, Willow! You did a great job on this little sweetie. I've not ventured into knitted toys yet...someday! Happy week (8HUGS))

She is so loveable! My daughter has a knitting group. I will tell her about this. Wouldn't some little child love to have this?

You rock, Grandma! And is a little boy rabbit on the way as well? I have a friend whose 13 year old still wants to see her bunny, Roger, when she gets out of school. He rides with her dad to pick her up.

That is adorable. Wish I could knit. All I can do is make those little sock monkeys.

That little bunny would be a perfect gift for a little 2 year old grandchild.

Love it!
Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on Rubber Duckie. I painted that same little duck last February and included a link to the song. Couldn't get it out of my head for weeks!
Everyone knows the words though!
I love your yarn stash. Just having all those beautiful colors is enough in a way. I do have a knitter friend and I can't resist buying bargain yarn for her when I see it. It's always about the color!

The jumper is my favorite part!!!!! You should make up your own bunny pattern and sell it. I bet you could! This is adorable... and I'm wondering who's Easter present it is??? I love the Peter Rabbit stories... that was the theme of my children's nursery. I have really old books with wonderful illustrations of Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail :)
