This story begins with my passion for Liberty fabric, a new love for amigurumi, and then meeting Martina and Narelle of Ava&Neve, who are so passionate about Liberty that they have their own Liberty fabric store. I knew that I wanted to develop a special little character to showcase these gorgeous fabrics, and they were happy to share my vision.
I’m so excited to introduce you to a special little bunny today!
Wynne is the end result of much hard work…as anyone who has developed a new pattern from scratch will know. The culmination of much excitement, then frustration and unpicking, then repeat, and repeat again, as many times as it takes.
Eventually you get to meet a whole new little personality, as amigurumis develop and take on a mind of their own.
Wynne’s name came to me as I was perusing lists of children’s names, and immediately I saw the little face, and character coming to life. Wynne’s name suits a boy and a girl, and so I’ve named both the Wynne Bunnies.
Discover how you can make your own Amigurumi bunny.
Here are my first girls…sweet little poppets dressed in Liberty smocked dresses, with pintucked hems. Aren’t they just the sweetest?!
They are wide eyed and innocent, exploring their world with great wonder and joy. They love catching butterflies and making daisy chains. In fact, they’ve been picking flowers to do just that.
Wynne has a lot of dreams and aspirations as well. Here she is longingly trying to reach up to her Grandma’s sewing machine. She’s a little bit too small for it right now, but she can’t wait to get started on fashion design with her beloved Liberty prints.
Wynne’s twin or male counterpart, is an equally cute little character. Here he is selling newspapers on the street, with noble ambitions driving him…he is a country boy at heart, and loves fishing in the stream for trout in true Huck Finn style. But don’t be fooled by this innocent face…he might also catch a toad while he’s there, and has mischievous plans for it!
Paperboy Wynne has a jaunty outfit made from lovely Liberty lawn, and his little bag and newspapers are all handmade.
There are many more adventures awaiting them and if you would like to purchase your own Wynne bunny, they are available in strictly limited quantities exclusively through Ava&Neve. Wynne comes standing displayed in a clear acetate tube, with his/her own swing tag.
