Lily



Lily; my third bunny, just in time for Easter, is made from Schulte viscose fabric in a gorgeous vintage shade of dusky pink, with a pretty floral cotton fabric for the inner ears. Around her neck, I’ve tied silk ribbons in matching pink and lilac.




Lily is 8¾ inches/22cms top to toe and 6½ inches/16cms sitting. She is 5-way cotter jointed, with a wobble neck joint and filled with firm fibre filling and steel shot for weight. She has black glass eyes and has been slightly aged around the edges with oil pastels to add to the vintage look.




Although I forgot to photograph them, on her back are a fabric ‘Handmade at Bilberry Lane’ label and her unique antique style ‘BL’ pin.




Lily’s finishing touches are a bunny/egg antique style brass charm with matching cotton fabric around her neck and on her head is a beret made from cotton velvet (hand-dyed by me) in a plum colour decorated with a silk flower and a bell on top.




The next photograph is done for and at the suggestion of Simone of Linden Grove blog, who wanted to see a better idea of scale, so here is Lily sitting in my hand – thanks very much for that idea Simone.




Lily can be purchased for £50, plus shipping and packing:

UK - £8 Special Delivery

Gosh now you really do get the perspective with her sitting in your hand and can appreciate the delicate making of her. I love, love her hat. Wish I was that small so I could borrow it! Hugs Mrs A.

She is such a beautiful bunny Julia! A wonderful size too! I really like her hand dyed beret. She looks like an artist. You could make her a little artists palette and brush to accessorise - I feel am getting carried away now!!! x
