I recently had a request for a custom order of one of my bunnies with multiple outfits. I made one for my niece a few years ago and it is now a well loved toy. I'd been meaning to make some more for my etsy, but hadn't gotten around to it until now.
The first outfit has a hot-pink tiered bubble skirt and black and white striped shirt and a black headband with a pink flower. I made a few different shirts before I got it right. The first two were long sleeve, but they were just too hard to get on and off. If I had trouble with it, I'm sure that little fingers would too. The third version was short sleeve, but it was still difficult to get the neck of the shirt over the head or feet. Adding the button in the back worked wonders, and the shirt now slips on and off easily.

The second outfit started out as a tank top. I had intended to make pants to go with it, but the pants weren't looking right and wouldn't stay up very well, so I morphed the tank top into a dress. The buttons come undone for easy changing. For accessories I crocheted some ballet slippers and used ribbon to help keep them on. Also there is a purse with a flowered button.

The last outfit is the only one that is the same as the bunny that I gave my niece a few years ago. I've made several bunnies with this sundress. For the sets I added a straw hat and sandals. It also has buttons to help with changing.

I found some old (and sort of poor quality) photos of the bunny I made for my niece. Hers had a princess outfit complete with crown and scepter. It also had a skirt and shirt outfit with a button cowl (a miniature version of one I had given her earlier which she wore constantly.) The last outfit was a pink sundress with flowers on it.
I had quite a bit of fun designing all the different outfits. I'm now in the process of designing a doll pattern along with perfecting the patterns for some of these clothes. I can't wait to design more!
those are sooooo cute!ReplyDelete
