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)

Super cute!  I love the detail in the back (and your shoes rock my socks!).   Kiss

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.

Maiwa Handprints in the Net Loft on Granville Island
Fabric paints and the like.


Paper Poet - 665 Columbia, New Westminster
Great paper, envelopes, cool stamps, sealing wax and stamps plus my friend Tanya owns the shop and she is fantastic! Smiley

Art Supplies

Opus (Granville Island, North Van & Langley)

Loomis (on Main near Terminal)
All sorts of art supplies and some craft stuff, too.

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!
