Less is more

Today my email club received a free pattern for a 

little rabbit softie

which is so simple a child could make it.

I worried about it’s simplicity for a few days

and tried to make more detailed and fiddly rabbits.

But I didn’t like them. 

So here it is: a simple rabbit.

No apologies.

I asked the boys if it would make a good Easter gift and they agreed…

so long as he comes with chocolate.

    I love the simplicity of it, yet it doesn’t look like anyone elses rabbit. Mind you if there is any chocolate going….

    Bet your Dad really would like a rabbit!!!!!!!!
    He’s so cute. Does he have a tail?

    My very first visit but I love that you love your life.
    Time with littlies is very precious and the greatest job you will ever do. And you can sprinkle it with fun things for you. Perfect!
    I’ll be back.

    Hello – it’s lovely to meet you.
    I have been drifting about the internet this evening, looking for new blogs / people to follow – and I really love your blog. The header is beautiful, and I had a look in in your shop and it’s all gorgeous. I love the leaping hares.
    I am just learning sewing at the moment – have done a few classes over the past few months. Some basic machine embroidery (my speciality so far is dog’s dinners, haha!)
    Do you think I could manage to follow your hare pattern? As someone who is a bit, erm, limited.
    Anyway, nice to meet you.
    I have a blog and a website shop if you’d like to visit

    It’s the simplicity that makes it so charming! I would join your email club, but I live in Toronto.
