Miss Maggie Rabbit







I have for many years been a huge admirer of Alica Poulson, she has a style so effortlessly beautiful.   On my crafty wish list for what seems like forever has been to make Miss Maggie Rabbit....I purchased the pattern almost as soon as it was released.....last weekend this became a reality and oh what fun she was to make.

The pattern calls for Sandstone WoolFelt® for the body and Havana Gold for the delightful boots, both of which can be found on our website here.   Alicia also uses embroidery thread to stitch her Miss Maggie, we have matching shades here, however I used Aurifil Wool Thread for mine, this one for the body, this one for the whiskers and this one for her boots. The original Miss Maggie wears a beautiful dress in Liberty Tana Lawn and whilst I have some in my stash, my Miss Maggie was always going to wear Tilda.   I chose Lizzie Pink for her dress and her ears are in the delightful Jean Dove White.  

I called on mum to knit her little shawl for me (it's Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Amber that I have left over from a little crochet cowl I'm making) ...  having attempted and failed to learn to knit over the Christmas holidays, I have to say I think I have found the one craft that I do not love.  

Rather indulgently, Miss Maggie was always destined to be mine.... I had intended on her living in my sewing room, she does however look very comfy on the sofa in the living room, the challenge being for her to stay there and be snaffled off to a certain Miss Poppy's room....there's nothing for it, I'm going to have to make another!


Did you spot the other finish......... two in one week....what about that!  I'll be back with pics of my latest Brick Quilt another day, when it's not quite so blustery outside.  Have  a lovely weekend.

  1. Oh you've made a lovely job of her Sarah - she's gorgeous - and I specially love her boots! I think Miss Maggie is the only one of the set that I haven't made yet ... oh ... and there's a mouse too isn't there! Alicia is a very talented lady and you've done her proud! I think you'd better make a friend for Miss Maggie before war breaks out at your place, haha! xo
