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!

Errr... rereading my comment, I should have written I'm going to have more fun with this than my 10-year-old daughter will (have fun with Maggie). I certainly didn't mean to imply that I'll have more fun with the rabbit than I will with my own daughter! :-D

I absolutely love these bunnies!! I'd love to make one for my baby girl. The only problem...I don't knit, I crochet. Any chance some day you'll have a crochet option for their little sweaters?

Squee! I got a bunny! I'm going to have one very happy three-year-old, assuming I can bring myself to share. :)

So excited for the bunny clothes patterns! My daughter's and my bunnies will be getting clothes for Christmas this year. We love them so much! Sweetest little softies ever!

Happily checked your blog every day waiting for these beautiful bunny kits, as I regretted missing out on them the first time around. I placed my order for just me, a 44 year old woman. Excited about all the new clothing patterns too. You are never too old to play!

Gorgeous new fabrics for this round of Maggie Rabbit. I think the fabric Danjo is actually D'Anjo, but I have no idea what language this is or what it means. Anjo is angel in Portuguese and she certainly is an angel! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity Alicia.

I missed out the first go-around to get me a Maggie rabbit but I just ordered mine and I'm very excited to get started. I'm going to spruce up my craft room to celebrate and get back in the groove :)

Awesome! I ordered my first bunny and supplies, and I'm thrilled to make her.

Oooooooooooooh!!!! I finally made it to buy your kit this time! I would LOVE a "boy bunny" kit"; but I just got two with dresses for my daughter, and clothes pattern for the pants and shirt, because she will looooooove them!! (And she would love having a boy and a girl bunny:)) And the more clothes, the more fun she will have:) Can't wait to start making them!!! (Ok, I am slightly excited, and sharing this awesome link with all my co-workers;))

So excited. My maggie is on her way!!! Loving the clothes. especially the hoodies. I just hope I can do her justice. Take care. You are very clever. It must be very exciting to see something you designed being loved so much x

My first two rabbits are finished can they be added to the pinterest page please. My son requested a army uniform so i pair of army trousers and army shirt were made last night i just need some teeney buttons to finish. Thank you so much for sharing your creative skills so that we get to make these wonderful rabbits. I have enjoyed it so much. Now i get to make the knitted goodies- hooray!

Oh my! You have been so busy - and so clever! Sweet little Amelia will have such a lovely time dressing her dollies :-) And my 15 year old is mad keen for me to get knitting. Thank you for creating such loveliness to share!

How hard are the new knits? The capelet was fine for a newbie knitter. If I were to try one of the new ones, which one would you suggest? Thanks!

I am posting a link to knitting daily, you may already read their newsletter. It is on Laura Ingalls Wilder and her knitting lace. I know how much you love those books, I read them all too, a few times.

You're amazing. That is cutest darned little bunny ever. If I happen upon some extra cash I'm going to get them for my kids.

Oh my gosh! Love the little hooded sweater for that super cute bunny! My daughter linked me to your site since I'm on a quest for finding the perfect wallpaper!!! I will forever be a fan. You inspire me to create! Thanks!

I really want one of these kits but I can't decide which one!

All these rabbits are so lovely !

If making rabbits was my thing, I would be ordering this kit like crazy! So creative and cute- did you write all the knitted patterns yourself???

Hi Alicia, would you please consider making available a downloadable pdf pattern for the bunny?

That would be great since overseas parcels sometimes mean huge taxes and customs charges (and on top of that I have to wait longer :)).

Thanks in advance!

I LOVE these!

I just got the email saying that my rabbit kit with Emilia fabric is on its way! I'm excited because I missed out last time. It was so hard to choose between the fabrics but the Emilia is gorgeous. Cant wait!

What a fun day here - just as I was leaving to do some shopping I noticed the UPS truck at the end of the driveway, and what to my wondering eyes should appear but my copy of Bowl Food! Knowing the tick-tock was ticktocking, I carried on down the driveway, stopping only to fetch the mail, whereupon I discovered my kit for Miss Maggie Danjo Alicia Amelia Andrew Greta Bunners Rabbit! That was some ka-wick bunny hoppin'! Thank you!
