A few months ago I was commissioned to make a baby present for a little boy (who has not yet been born but is due to be born at the end of March).
Facts I had for the growing family
1) they are expecting a boy 2) baby is due in Spring time 3) baby's bedding for his cot is already purchased; patterned with little blue rabbits 4) mum-to-be owns a real life house bunny of her own.
So naturally I set about planning a bunny themed gift.
Here it is, freshly finished and photographed this morning.
I have been careful to make sure that there are no buttons that could be pulled off by tiny fingers or accidentally swallowed by tiny mouths.
Tomorrow I will send it hopping off via Royal Mail from Bath to Newcastle. I hope baby will be pleased with it when he arrives into the world any time now.
I am itching to try some more little critters. I think cute, little giraffes might be on the agenda! So watch this space...
PricingThe five rabbits alone took over an hour each to crochet, assemble and decorate, so I would sell this kind of specially commissioned mobile for £45.
