Bunny Jumpers

Greetings from a lovely sunny Sunday early evening. Today's been nice, but the weather in May cannot be guaranteed; indeed, some days have been so cold we've shivered. To that end, I have made some soft and fluffy bunny jumpers for me and the girl.

Bunny ears, obvs!

For her jumper, I used a vintage pattern previously used here, a simple Raglan sleeve sweatshirt pattern. Easy for her to put on without Mummy's help! This is important, as she is very independent.

It's almost impossible to get kids to pose.

My jumper is a Linden Sweatshirt. I have made an oversized one before here, but this one is the correct size for my measurements, for a tighter fit.  The first time around, I had real trouble attaching the neckband, as it just wasn't long enough for self fabric. So, this time I used some lovely grey ribbing, and it went on beautifully.


This fabric, as well as being uber-cute on the outside, is backed in the softest, fluffiest pile. My daughter says its like stroking a real bunny rabbit!  It was so soft, I almost left it as a piece of fabric and used it as a blanket! 


I bought this from Dragonfly fabrics in East Sussex. I went with the Hove Sewing Group, on a pilgrimage to their studio. I was determined not to buy too much, but their fabrics and patterns were just too good. I also bought the paper version of the Tova pattern which is on my make list for the near future.

Look how her scar is disappearing fast!

That's all for now. We will try not to wear our jumpers at the same time, but baby girl is very keen on us matching ("like sisters")!  So we may match once or twice, just for her.
