For Christmas I gave my granddaughter a mouse from the Luna Lapin books, she wore a pinafore dress and blouse together with a coat…
It was her birthday last week so I made a few more clothes for Miss Mouse as I called her. My granddaughter is into the pink phase, so I raided my stash for pink fabrics and lace. The first dress I made is called Clementine’s Dreamy Dress, it’s meant to be made with three layers of tulle but I had some pretty lace to use instead. The organza ribbon tied at the back finishes it off beautifully. Violet Speedwell was called in to pose for photos!
I found a very pretty pink floral cotton to make a wrap dress…I’ve only just realised it’s the same fabric as her original dress!
It then crossed my mind that maybe she would like something else apart from dresses, so I made a pair of purple dungarees (I didn’t have enough pink!) and gave them pink patch pockets. I love the details on the Luna Lapin clothes – the dungarees even have a false flat-felled seam down the outside leg and patterns on the back patch pockets.
I added a pink and purple dress I had originally made for Violet to the pile…
…and packed them into a pretty pink storage suitcase. I bought a set of three from the works for £7 and they’re perfect for gifting.
All the patterns are from the Luna Lapin books – I’ve got the first and second one. Sarah from Cool Crafting in Kendal is the designer, please follow the link if you fancy making one. There’s lots of different animals now and even more clothes, she sells kits too, the instructions are easy to follow and they are all a delight to make.
I’ve now had a request for a boys rabbit to go in the nursey for my grandson due in June and the girls are keen for me to make them more clothes, so I think I’m going to be busy with these grandchildren!
