Hello Martha!!

Say hello to Martha! Sorry the photos are so bad, the camera doesn't like the flash much! Well here is Martha, my first little bunny I have knitted that turned out ok! I didn't use any expensive wool to maker her as I didn't want to waste it :o(

I added a little pattern to the bottom of her dress, but it needs an iron as it keeps curling up at the edges. I think she turned out quite well - well ok for a first attempt.

I'm not sure I am 100% happy with the ears, they're a bit wider than I had hoped so I might cut the size down a little - I'm not sure - what do you think?? Any feedback will be appreciated!
I always find the faces hard to do as I don't want them to look silly. Embroidery is a bit like handwriting, each person's is individual. I decided not to embroider a mouth as such as they've always looked strange when I have done them before. I am happy with what I have given her.
Know I'm going to practice a few more before I experiment with some different yarns.
If they turn out well, I may decide to sell them in an etsy shop. Each one would be individual - anyone interested - LoL!
Off to bed now, ready for work tomorrow......

Martha looks cute! I realy love her (ones I knitted one too, it's somewhere on my blog)!
One little tip: use cotton to knit. That is thinner and I think the ears might become smaller too?

I love how it turned out and not all stuffed animals etc... have a mouth so if you don't point it out no one will really notice it.

Hi Hetty, you visited my blog, so I went to have a look at your blog. You're a great knitter, I wish I could knit like that... I am trying, but somehow, knitting is not my thing... Greetings from Belgium.
