sewing bug - Miss Maggie Rabbit .......................

After making my little Russian dolls I have had the urge to do some more hand sewing. I enjoyed embroidering the little faces on the dolls and did get more adventurous as my family of dolls increased. My inspiration for what to do next came from one of my favourite blogs Cherry Heart. Sandra has just made Matilda and Molly, two adorable little bunnies, if you are tempted you can buy the pdf here.

Sandra is very skilled and needlework is just one of her many talents so I hope I haven't over estimated my sewing skills but I'm going to have a go.

I had plenty of fabric to choose from but not the right shade of felt, so I have compromised and chosen light grey for the head and upper body and dark grey for the legs as the light grey wouldn't stretch to arms and legs. This will be my practise bunny so keep your fingers crossed,

I read through the pdf as instructed.........

all pieces cut out - and some stitching started on the head...............
Hopefully more to show you next week.

talk soon x


  1. The bunny is so cute! I envy you people who can sew. I have an older sewing machine but need to reteach myself how to use it. And I'd love to learn embroidery. I did a little when I was a kid but haven't tried since. Have a great weekend.

  2. have fun!!!
    happy weekend, too!!!
