Little dresses for my little rabbit

I have a knitted rabbit that my mum made for me a few years ago. It's so cute and apparently so simple to make and is a free pattern by little cotton rabbits. The pattern also shows how to make cats and bears and is really just so good.

Anyway, I've made my rabbit lots of dresses and other outfits:

This dress is made from silk lace and black felt

This skirt is so simple because I just snipped off the end of a ballon!

My attempt to make a Hawaiian skirt.

This is the most recent dress that I made and is from the bridesmaid lining of the dress that my mum is making me.

This is her Chinese dress that wraps around made of this lovely elephant silk.
This dress is made from one of my old tops.

I gave this skirt a large lace over skirt with a couple of tiny pleats to make it puff out.

I love the denim for her jeans in this photo!

This is one of the early dresses I made that I remember was based on one of the Eurovision dresses a few years ago.

This is made from some scarlet fleece.

I made this dress from an old curtain fabric in our bathroom.

I think that this dress looks a bit french and I like how the skirt goes out.
For some of the next dresses I make I might do tutorials on how I make them even though most are really simple. They will be great to go on a knitted toy from the pattern my rabbit is from. If anyone does make a dress similar to one of these I would love it is you email me a photo  at and I'll put it on my blog! If any particular dresses you want to know how I made then tell me and I'd be happy to make a tutorial.

What's in my garden?

Today I decided to have a look around my garden and take some photos. Honestly, I haven't been in my garden for probably 2 weeks so this was a bit of an adventure! Some plants I didn't even know I had!

The next four photos are some of my favourites.

                                                        I didn't just find plants in my garden!

Rainbow Gogo

I have a collection of Gogos and today I decided to make a nice photo of them. Summer is finally coming and I've been looking forward too it for, well, since last summer. Warmth and getting so hot that you feel that you're going to melt is something I enjoy. So anyway, I decided to make a nice cheerful rainbow with them.

This is what I made

 Some I made deliberately blurred so the rainbow effect is clearer.
