Maggie Rabbit's Back!

Remember Mags? Yep, she's back! You can find her in kit form right HERE!

She has one previously available dress fabric and four new ones. There's Betsy:

15Betsy1

And Danjo (interesting name, but no, I didn't make it up — Liberty made up all of these :). The yarn looks darker here than it does in real life. It's more of a pale, warm maroon:

15Danjo1

Emilia's Flowers, for my dear Amelia:

15EmiliasFlowers1

And Margaret Annie (appropriately!):

And last but not least, sweet Meadow for my Clover Meadow:

15Meadow1

Just choose the dress fabric and yarn combo you would like from the drop-down menu (sorry, there are no substitutions!).

I also have some new clothes patterns! There are some Little Pants and a Shirt for Rabbits. You can make them for a boy bunny or a girl bunny. Just change the fabric and place the buttons on whichever side you'd like!

15PantsShirt1

There is a precious Little Knitted Dress for Rabbits (done from the top down, and mostly in the round [after you do the increases for the skirt]):

15Dress1

And a Little Raglan Sweater for Rabbits, also for boys or girls (the directions will help you place the buttonholes on the left or right side, depending on which one you're making):

15Raglan1

And a Little Hooded Coat for Rabbits, all done in garter stitch, with holes in the hood for ears (of course!):

15Hoodie1

I also have some Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport Weight yarn for you to make all of these knitted things, in eighteen different colors (not all pictured here, but they are on the product page):

15Yarn1

And there are also Weensy Little Buttons in nine colors for your sweaters and shirts:

15Buttons1

And if you had trouble threading the elastic to go around the neck and cuffs of your bunny peasant dress, I have some size #18 needles with big eyes which will make it easier:

15Needles1

Now. For the knitty (sp?) gritty:

  • I've fixed the shopping-cart issue that we had last time, so the specific name of the fabric, or the color of yarn, or the color of the buttons you've placed in your cart will show up, and not just the name of the general item. I'm really sorry I didn't realize this wasn't working until the end of the day of the last kit sale, and by then it was too late — my bad!!! But I think it's working nicely now, so this is good.
  • Please — and this is where I beg! — take your time while shopping and make sure you are putting everything you need into your cart before you check out. Unfortunately, I cannot add anything extra to an existing order once it's been placed. The best I can do is 1) cancel the original order for you and have you place a new order with everything you'd like included, or 2) just have you place another order for the new items, and if they are physical items that need to be shipped (i.e.: not a digitally downloaded pattern), you will have to pay shipping twice. Due to the volume of orders that we receive in a very short period of time, I have to rely completely on my system, and the system only lets me cancel, not tinker, so just take a moment to make sure you are getting everything you want in your cart before you check out.
  • Please also make sure you have the correct shipping address entered for your order.
  • All that said, if you do have a problem and need to email me, don't hesitate!
  • All patterns are available as digitally downloaded PDFs. (If you've ordered a kit, a hard copy of the pattern is included.) Once you've purchased it, a link to download your digital PDF pattern will be made immediately available to you upon completion of payment, even if you have purchased physical items at the same time. A link to download the patterns will also be emailed to you separately. Again, this system is completely automatic, so please make sure you are watching for the link at the end of your transaction, and have the correct email address attached to your order. If you have any problem receiving your pattern, let me know.
  • I do ship internationally. Please read my FAQ page for details on shipping to Canada and overseas (about halfway down the page) and info about customs charges, etc. (You may be charged duties or taxes or customs charges by your importing country, which unfortunately I can't control; this doesn't happen often but it does occasionally happen, so please be aware.) To see how much the general shipping cost (minus these potential charges) is to your location, please complete the checkout process to Step 2 (which is after you enter your address, so the system knows how much to charge you; shipping charges are different depending on location). You will see the shipping charge to your location and can decide if you would like to complete the transaction.

We have made a lot of kits this time, and hope to get everything shipped in the next several weeks or so (but please be patient, because it is only Greta and I working on this but we're doing our best; we have half othe kits already assembled but if we sell over that we will need some time to put more together). IF the kits do completely sell out again, please don't worry because we will make more. It's takes us some time, but we will make more! Kind of like Doritos.

Thank you very much!!! I'm really excited about this new stuff!

***Ooops! A couple of things I forgot to mention:

  • Thank you to everyone who submitted photos for the Pinterest gallery! Aren't these buns just adorable??? I LOVE seeing what people do to make their bunnies special and unique. Oh, they are just all so darn sweet. Thank you, guys. I love them all! (For info on submitting a photo for inclusion, see the second paragraph of this previous post. I am slow to upload these, so please don't worry if I don't get to yours right away. I get there eventually.)
  • The knitting patterns are brand new, so if you run into ANY trouble with them, email right away and I will figure it out. If there is any errata and I need to update a pattern, the service I use allows me to send you a notification that there is a new, corrected pattern to download. I will also get these patterns on Ravelry soon. Please check the web shop product page for any errata. I will post corrections there.
  • If any of the yarn runs out, we will reorder right away. This is my first time carrying yarn so I'm not sure what quantities to carry, but the manufacturer ships quickly so this can be turned around without losing too much time at all.

Thank you again, and thank you for being patient with me! I really appreciate it!

These bunnies are just absolute the cutest. And their wardrobe just puts them over the top! Looooooooove

So cute! I really am going to have a go one of these days, especially now I'm expecting :)

These new things are so, so adorable, Alicia!

You are so wonderfully creative. :)

So cute! I just ordered mine with Margaret Annie and Arctic Moss ~ excited!!!

Yay!!!! I'm going to get the bunny clothes patterns to make the Doctor Who bunny for my son!!! He'll be so excited!!! I made 4 bunnies all ready and they are well-loved by their recipients. So glad there are talented people like you out there ready to supply us with such wonderful things to make! <3

Everything is sooo cute! You seriously have more talents than one person should be allowed. lol.

So excited to have Margaret Annie on her way, along with some adorable buttons and that fabulous hooded coat pattern. Can't wait.

Oh my, you are killing me with the cuteness here! I want one so bad but I am in the process of decluttering my house and I just cannot buy anything when I don't really need it. Ugh, I just love her though!

What a wonderful selection! I'm so excited to be making my first bunny. I rarely make things just for myself, but she will be a special one.
Thank you!

This is such a cool project Alicia. I love all the new outfits you've added. What amazing talent you have.

Couldn't resist, in fact I was waiting for you to re stock! I love the new outfits too.

Woot! Woot! Now I can make a boy bunny for my son.

I am so excited I missed out the first time around, so glad I hopped onto your blog today.

I have been checking your blog daily for this very reason! Can't wait to order.

Don't forget the New Christmas ornaments too:)PLease?♥

I'm very glad to see these rabbits again! I've ordered two, (they will cross the ocean!) but I just want to know what sort of wool batting you recommend, is it easy to find? Thank you for you answer and for all beautiful things you are creating!

Those rabbits are awfully cute, but what I'd like is an outfit in any of those colorways in MY size!! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have had a particularly stressful week, and when I saw that the bunny clothes had been added; well, I just had to order a kit and all the instructions for the clothes. You've just made my week a whole lot better.

How do we submit to your Pinterest Gallery, Alicia. i asked this a few post ago. Can you please add the directions for this? Thanks so much. My Maggie Rabbit is finished and I'd love to add her to the gallery.
