Florence and Posy

It's been more than two months since I last made a Little Lady!  I had such a craving to make one, so here is  Little Florence with Posy, an Anime Bunny.  Posy had been waiting in my sketchbook for the right time to be brought to life, though the original drawing was one of a more kookier looking bunny with lopsided eyes and wonky ears.  She had a mind of her own whilst I was sewing her and came out nothing like the sketch, even demanding a flower for her chartreuse green needle felted hair!


I decided to try a new face on Florence - I know that sounds strange, but usually I do the same sort of facial features for my Little Ladies.  This time I wanted something different.  You might notice the subtle difference of her eye shape and the placement of the features.  The yarn I used for her hair is such a gorgeous shade of chartreuse green -  though this is the last of the batch:(  She wears a dress in a dear Peter Rabbit print and one of my mom's mohair cardigans.















































We'll be away for the weekend, so hope you all enjoy yours!!

  4. Shelly, I love them both! Florence's hair shade, in single ply wool, is perfect. And what a wonderful little bunny Posy is!

  5. Hello Beth!

    Thank you! I just love that yarn and am hoping to source out some more as that's the last of it. The texture is quite rough, but I love the way it varies from thick to thin:)
