MEET ROSIE

Rosie  Rabbit, that is. She was made from an on line pattern from the Posy gets Cozy  website –http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/ and was made, not in felt, but calico as a try-out for difficulty level so that my youngest grandchildren can make their own during the coming school holidays and weekends. Alicia Paulson, founder of Posy has a lovely imagination – so although it might be possible to draft all these lovely things oneself perhaps, why bother when she has done all the hard work for you and in such an imaginative way? Furthermore the patterns are so reasonable! and of course, best of all – not too difficult for little hands to do, especially in felt [with a little help from Grandma of course.]

I have ordered some metres of felt in rabbit colours from Ebay and will cut out more Rosies for the weekend. Although I made Rosie in calico, not felt, I made it the same way, i.e. the seams are on the outside. I buttonholed round the legs and arms, although I machined the seams first, just to make them stronger, but the buttonholing on the head and body didn’t look right, so I left it off. The dress pattern comes with the rabbit pattern, and although it was fine as is, for little fingers I cut the back into two parts and put a seam  and back opening in. Just makes it that bit easier to take the dress on and off for Phoebe [2yrs old] because it will be taken off many times, knowing Phoebe!

‘Posy’ also sells sweet clothes’ patterns also, so I am off there to have a browse and shop! See you soon, keep warm.

  1. Cute. And with outside seams it shouldn’t be too fiddly for little hands (although sometimes that helps!)

      I agree! there are some things that ought to be outside the remit of little hands – unfortunately they very soon become adept at those sorts of things!
