"Shhh~ Sleeping Bunny,"
reads the sign on Dandelion's door. Dandelion's a new bunny so she sleeps a lot. She is my adaptation of the Debi Birkin "Sleepy Bunny" pattern.

Dandelion is knit from a very soft Mohair-blend yarn that is 76.5% acrylic, 10.5% wool, 10.5% Mohair, and 2.5% polyester. She is filled with 100% polyester fill. Her eyes and nose are hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. Like any new baby, Dandelion's muscles aren't well-developed yet so her head is floppy, however it is extremely well attached. Yarn stitches that go through her body are repeated over & over & over again. By being attached in this way, the bunnies feel even more real because they are able to turn their heads to either side as well as tip them back. Her arms and feet are also attached securely with a repetition of tiny stitches. While her arms are stationary, her feet are designed to be floppy, more like her head. The combination of her very soft, Mohair "fur," her plump, polyester filling, and her "loose-limbed" joints, make this a bunny that is irresistibly cuddly. It is very difficult to walk by her without picking her up~

From where she is seated, measured to the tips of her ears, Dandelion is approximately 12". Measured lying down, from the tips of her ears to the tips of her toes she is approx. 14". She stays snuggly-warm in her beautiful, light-pink mohair hoodie which I hand knit especially for her. When I finished knitting her sweater, I put it on her, and the first thought that came to mind was "Dandelion." She looked just like a soft fluffy Dandelion snuggled in her first sweater-sleeper - and that's how she got her name.

~*~ Dandelion, created with love, guaranteed 100% to love you back!~*~

**Because of her mohair exterior Dandelion isn't intended to be given to an infant. She shouldn't be given to any child under the age of 5; however, if placed high on a shelf in a baby's room, out of baby's reach, she is a wonderful addition to the nursery decor. She promises to sit there patiently, watching baby, and waiting five years till they can become close friends!

***Should Dandelion and her sweater need a bath, they can be gently swished through lukewarm water with a mild soap like Woolite, (by hand,) then laid out to air-dry.

~*~ Each of my bunnies is one of a kind, (OOAK) Each bunny is priced according to the degree of complexity in creating both the bunny & the outfit, as well as the number of hours required to make it. It usually takes about 7 full days of work to create a bunny from beginning to end. I use no patterns for their clothes, but create each outfit as I go, according to how I perceive each bunny's personality.
I hope you will enjoy! ~*~
