As everyone knows I'm passionate about bringing an Australian perspective to important celebrations - which is why I designed our hands felted Bilby. However, rabbits belong to far wider tradition and have enormous appeal which is why ak's sweet little rabbits make perfect Easter gifts for little people.
Oliver and Anna were inspired by an very charming 1930's toy as well as decorative egg cups from the same era which featured hard working dressed rabbits delivering eggs. Our rabbits carry felt totes that will hold a miniature Easter egg.
This ak traditions creative handwork kit features an original ak toy design and contains everything you'll need to make a vintage-style felt rabbit dressed in cords and a sweet little jumper - we've even included the ready to dress, hand knitted 4ply jumper!
Each kit includes, - the pattern with clearly set out full instructions, - pure wool felt in a main colour with contrast colour for the inner ear and feet, - cotton cord for the pants, - wool felt for the bag, - a selection of coordinated embroidery threads and felt trims to embellish the tote bag with either flowers or carrots, - a ready made tiny jumper.
Each kit will make one rabbit and each colour combination is different and unique.
Note: unless specifically requested we do not include the synthetic toy fill which is usually readily available at quality craft shops
Skill: sewn by hand which makes this kit a great gift for a creative friend or for a child who is just learning to sew. It also makes a perfect Easter gift - you'll be able to slip a tiny egg into your rabbits bag.
Normally this kit is priced at $42.00 but as an Easter special we're offering 30 unique kits at AU$30.00 and you'll receive a complimentary pattern to make William and Flora our popular large felt Hares.
