Hi there! Meet Luci Bunny, the newest addition to the MissNeriss Collection. I made Luci for very special order from a woman from my former life as a tour guide in Australia. She was looking for something similar to her own Mouse; the cuddly toy from her own childhood, who is too fragile for her toddler to play with. We exchanged emails and ideas until eventually we settled on something similar to what you see here. However, we were still undecided if we should make a mouse or a bunny. So I left it to the hook to decide.
As the mouse/bunny evolved, I just wasn’t feeling that she could be a mouse, so a bunny started to appear instead. I spent ages trying to get the ears and eyes just right, but in the end I think she looks perfect.
As is always the case, I’ll be very sad to wave goodbye as Luci Bunny packs her bags and leaves home today, but I’m still happy because she has fuelled some serious creative juices in me. I want to make another one.
The original pattern is by Sidrun on Craftsy, although I used heavier yarn and I altered the pattern quite a bit.
I’ve also started sharing my inspiration on Tumblr, so pop over and take a look at all the gorgeous images and patterns that I’m finding and sharing over there. missnerisscrochet.tumbler.com

Oh that is cute! Well done!
So cute 🙂 I’ll have to show my daughter (oldest) — she’s regained interest in crochet and has been on a bunny-making kick 🙂
