I LOVE LOVE LOVE my beautiful hair flowers! You did an amazing job...I really appreciate the fact that the clip is attached correctly with the big end facing away from the face(Im a photographer and that is huge!)...Thanks you for the extra flower with the dove...I will definitely be making another order:))
How the bunnies came about.
At age four, I was dressed in a pink tutu and pink and white rabbit ears for a children's ballet recital in Germany. After the show was over, my proud parents presented me with a small white rabbit figurine. It was a happy moment. Their faces beamed, I can still see it.
Two years later, I met Jimmy Stewart in London when he was starring in the play "Harvey". My parents encouraged me to go up to him and he sat me on his knee talked kindly to me. I don't remember what he said, but I love him, and I love Harvey. If you haven't seen the film, I highly recommend it. Oh, and Harvey is a 6 foot tall rabbit. Again...rabbits.
A few years later I fell in love with the story of The Velveteen Rabbit. My bunny love grew deeper.
Some twenty or so years later, I taught myself how to sew and started making these giant bunnies. This must have been in 2008 or thereabouts. I made one for a friend, who showed her bunny to another woman, who showed hers to another woman, and things just gathered steam from there. They are extremely popular as baby gifts, but also with all other types of folks as well. Nothing cheers up a friend with the blues like a giant soft goofy rabbit to sleep with.
I always come back to the rabbits. I have had fun adventures with making and selling other items (handbags, skirts, halter tops, jewelry, pinup hair flowers, etc...) but I find real joy in sewing these rabbits.
Love and Rabbits,
