Meet Mary Jane ! The Little Crochet Bunny

Just popping by to share with you what I have been up to recently. I just finished up this wee bunny rabbit this morning. I named her Mary Jane because I love her Mary Jane shoes and also because it really suits her…she is a no nonsense kind of girl! She doesn’t like frills so I decided to make her a little simple dress and bow.

I found the pattern  here at, http://www.amigurumitogo.com/2015/03/Spring-Time-Dress-Me-Bunny.html designed by a talented and generous lady who shares great step by step  amigurimi tutorials.

I had cream coloured 100% wool in my stash which was perfect for this project. I was so lucky because I had just the right amount….the little piece I had left over wasn’t even long enough to sew on a button

Here she is sitting down. I love how her little legs dangle over the edge of the cupboard.  I put wire in the arms and legs so that she can be posed in different positions, adding to the cuteness.

After a little research, I have found that ami means knit or crochet and nuigurimi means stuffed toy. In Japanese tradition, little stuffed toys are handed down from generation to generation. These little stuffed dolls/animals stay with the children all their lives, helping to relieve stress, providing a little comfort on tough days. What a lovely idea! So why not get out your crochet hook and make a little stuffed doll/animal for the special ones in your family.

Before I go I would like to thank the lovely Alida, over at https://buttercupandbee.wordpress.com/  for nominating my blog for the Liebster Award, I’m working on it!
