Rabbit in a Day contest!

It was snowing today, so decided not to go out.
Then I got bored and wanted to make something for fun.
So, I made a rabbit to go with my eggs.

I started out with a pattern that I found on the web.
If anyone knows who made this pattern, please let me now so I can add a link.
I found it while wondering around and just found the pattern pieces and there is no name on the print outs.
I don't have the originals, so would love to know who the pattern belongs to.

Post note: I found the designer!
The designer of this pattern is Denise Bailey of KKL Primitives and she has the pattern is on her site. Her bunny is called Hippity Hop.


I used the original face but I lightly stuffed the arms and legs. The orginal had tied fabrics.
The original had a skirt and straps, I made a longer skirt and added a shirt.
I was thinking of adding an apron with a pocket for carrots, but maybe I will leave her as is?
I just wanted something simple and fast. I gave her the egg to hold, but I think I might make some fabric flowers or a mini easter quilt for her to hold.

I hope you like her, she was fun and fast.
How about a contest? Give her a name and I will draw from the comments.
One winner will receive my new easter pattern, that i need to make this week.
I guess that will guarantee I make it;)
I will draw a winner, next Sunday from all of the entries.

Oh, she is very cute. Just so you know I am not good at naming stuff. I hate name my quilts. So hard. But for some reason the first name that came to my mind for your sweet little girl bunny was "Betsy". I think it was the gingham dress.

Cute, cute, cute! My DD had a bunny she named Emmaline, no idea where she dreamed up that name, but we liked it. Yours looks like an Emmaline too. :-) Have a happy week!

Wow...I can't believe she hasn't been sitting around for many many years! YOU ARE GOOD! Don't know of a name right now.

How about " Bunty"
for your Easter bunny. She's lovely.

KittyWampus said...

Oh...She is SWWWWEEET! (In a day, huh? Yikes...methinks I'm some kinda slow....) I know you only asked for 1 name, but there are two names just SCREAMING at me....One is "Millicent" and one is "Maisie"....I guess if I have to go with just one, it would be Miss "Maisie"... (Which, by the way, means "child of light" - what a wonderful way to harken spring!)
Love her!! Whatever she ends up being named!

The first name that comes to my mind is Harriet. Don't ask me why, I am not sure. But what can I say? Not good at naming things.

She's so cute! I just love her:)

Hi Debbie - I too have that pattern and couldn't find the 'owner' so I can't help you there...but I just love her little dress and the egg - she's a cutie.
I think Rachel Rabbit would be a nice name. Can't wait to see what your new pattern is....please enter me in the giveaway.

Denise * KKL Primitives said...

Hi Debbie, Yep, Hippity Hop is my pattern. I had offered it last year in a challenge contest I had. I guess I forgot to add my © to it ;P - thanks for taking the time to search for 'me' and for giving me credit. I appreciate it!
Your bunny turned out ADORABLE! She looks like a Bethany to me.

Well, she looks like a Patience to me. I mean think how she patiently waited for you to find her, make her, figure out who created her, etc. etc. Patience, definitely. ;-)

She is cute just as is if you ask me. She reminds me of some of the animals my grandmother made for us when we were young so in honor of my mom-mom I say Martha.
