Come! Meet Primrose!!

Our sweet Princess was treated to Primrose, made by Grammie (my Mom), this Christmas. Look at that sweet face! Her pretty petite flower makes me smile......and you know how much I love that!

Primrose, a most adorable bunny makes my daughter smile too! Now, I'm not a knitter, but as someone who appreciates handmade and creating in general, of course I wanted to know more and I thought some of you might too. :>

Mom bought the pattern to knit Primrose from Mary Jane's Tearoom over at etsy. I asked Mom what she thought about the quality of the pattern and she said that, "Her directions are meticulous! Excellent!" I thought that was high commendation since I often hear her grumbling about errors in knitting patterns. Apparently, Primrose was a delight to knit!

Can you believe how cute this bunny is??!! And even cuter, her sweet little sweater, shorts, tights, and shoes??!! I can't stand it......too too CUTE!!!

And even a fluffy bunny tail for sweet Primrose. There is even a hole in her shorts, just for that sweet fluff!

Susan, the creator of these knitted treasures at Mary Jane's Tearoom, also has a BLOG, where her most recent post lets us know that Susan is donating 80% of her proceeds from her Primrose sales to Help for Haiti through the campaign at the popular knitting and crocheting site, Ravelry, through the month of January.

And soon enough....when Mom finishes it for my boy, we'll have Oscar (another one of Susan's patterns that Mom bought) to meet! His clothes are finished, but he is still in need of his bunny body. Thought you just might like a peek! :>

Do you have a crafty family? Or are you their creative spark?

  14. awesome! that is cool, I was always afraid if I knitted a sweater for my kids they would outgrow if before I was done, I should make doll cloths (or bunny clothes) instead. Wonderful!

  15. Oh this is too cute! I was thinking how if I ever get a neice I'll need to make this, but now that i know there is a boy version perhaps I'll need to get knitting... thanks for the link!

    I owe all my talent to my mother ( who brought me up making lots of crafts, though the knitting came from my grandmother. This is something she would've made me for sure!

  18. Hi Karen,

    love your new blog header! Looking at it makes me smile - I think we got almost 8 inches of snow over night... That bunny is so darn cute! Your mom did a great job!! I'm so not a knitter :( I had once to knit a pair of socks and it has so many "imperfections" that it's not even funny but I kept them anyway LOL

    Have a fabulous weekend! :) Dana

  23. I love the bunny! Thank you for sharing Grammie's little find on Etsy and her talent!

    "Creative spark?" My Grammie was my creative spark! (My Great Grandmother) The spark skipped a couple generations before landing on me! And then exploded in my daughter!

  24. Oh my goodness, what a sweet and thoughtful gift. I love her. She's such a treasure. I have a very crafty and talented family, too.
