How funny, I made a mouse a while back that I embroidered in a similar fashion, your bunny's distant cousin I think:

He's the Dormouse from Alice in Wonderland (taking a snooze on a teapot), perhaps your bunny is the White Rabbit? ;o)

You can fill them with plaster of paris and add either pinbacks or strong magnets to them.

Oh!  I just checked the site and realized that you modified a pattern for plain mittens to make your cute mitts.  Well done!  I hope you don't mind me wanting to make a pair of my own...

I should also find and post a pattern I have in one of my books that is a similar idea except instead of animals, the mitts are little people.  Cute, but not as cute as yours! Smiley

Oh my gosh!  So cute!!!  I love, love, love your whole outfit and the mittens are the perfect finishing touch.  I am all about the black, pink and white/cream colour scheme and you are my hero rockin' it like you do! Wink

I so want a pair!  I'm going to find that pattern and send it to my pro-knitter mom-in-law and see if she can modify the pattern (maybe make the head portion a bit shorter and add some whiskers...) to make me kitty mittens, maybe black ones like my cute kitty Mona Mew!  How exciting! Smiley

Or... I am now thinking, for those of us that don't have knitting skills to make our own gloves, that you could take a purchased pair of gloves and still knit in the ears (or sew on fabric ones), use a duplicate stitch for the collar, and then add in the other features.

The crafty side of my brain is racing now!  Must get me some plain mittens and give this a try!  Thank you so much for posting this cute idea!

I posted some of these on glitter today and realized I still hadn't done so on craftster so here you go:

Fabric / Notions

Dressew - 337 West Hastings, Vancouver

Big fabric selection at very good prices upstairs, the best notions department downstairs.  Almost everything you could ever want and a bunch of stuff you didn't even know you needed.

Button Button - 422 W. Cordova
A tiny little shop full of buttons, buttons!

Fabricana -  1348 United Blvd, Coquitlam
(also in Richmond & Surrey)

Fanny's Fabrics - 1365 United Blvd, Coquitlam

There is another place (can't remember the name!) beside Fanny's and across the street from Fabricana that is a discount fabric store.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re:vintage embroiderd whatever! on: December 28, 2003 09:36:37 PM
What an awesome post!  I love that you love forgotten textiles as much as I do!

I repurpose old linens, clothing and needlework all the time.  If it is embroidery or crochet, I tend to stick with items that are stained or have tears, salvaging what I can of the portions that are still in good condition.  I also try to find out what I have before I cut it up so I don't 'destroy' something that had value in the condition it was when I found it.  If it is in perfect or near-perfect condition, I enjoy it as is.

My favorite thing is turning vintage linens into new aprons and skirts.  I expect to have the shop on my site all set up sometime in the week or so, so you will be able to see what I mean then.  

It is so fun to find new inspiration in items from the past.   Smiley

Oh,  I love the Agent Smith one!  Hmmm... I wonder if I have time to make an Agent Smith T for the boy as a last minute gift, he would totally love it!
