Dressing for The Bunny

I have two daughters, ages 2 and 3, and they increasingly like dressing up. They like very typical things for girls – twirly skirts, soft colors, and sparkles. I don’t have time to make them lots of clothes, but for special occasions and holidays, I try to gift them some handmade things to wear. Easter is coming early this year, so I’ve been busy crafting their outfits. Want to see what they’ll be wearing to meet The Bunny?

Need a dose of inspiration for all of that green yarn you’re stocking up on? Our new collection, Celtic Journey, is filled with patterns adorned with cables and textures and the print book is now back in stock (it was so popular, that we sold out of the print book shortly after launching it only a month ago)!

Additionally, I love how it includes a versatile mix of patterns including sweaters, accessories and an irresistible blanket. Check out a few of the lovely patterns from Celtic Journey below (and did you notice, they are all knit in green yarns)!
