Cottontails Handmade Rabbit Mary
by: Cottontails Handmade
Our Price: £45.00
A truly charming, traditional rabbit, Mary is one of a small collection of bunnies I make entirely by hand here at Cottontails, using an organic cotton fleece and Liberty fabrics.
Mary is made from a pattern I have created myself over many years, and is largely inspired by the Little Grey Rabbit character in Alison Uttley's children's books.
She measures 43cm from head to paw - not including her floppy ears.
She is made from the softest pale grey organic cotton fleece.
Her ears, paws and tail are lined with a Liberty Tana Lawn fabric - fabrics may vary a little, but I always choose small, pretty floral prints.
Her pinafore dress is made from 'Bunnies' fabric by Hollyhock Home, and I have lined the bodice with a pale blue cotton. The dress ties at the back of the neck with coordinating Liberty print ribbon.
She also wears a broderie anglaise petticoat - and carries a handmade fabric carrot in her dress pocket.
All her clothes are removable.
Mary has been named after the little girl in 'The Secret Garden', one of my favourite children's books - chosen because of the gardening bunnies on the print of her dress.
