Skinny rabbit

At last! I've managed to get some of the new dolls finished and photographed. I've been like a kid in a sweetshop recently, with lots of new patterns to try - but not quite finishing anything before rummaging through bits of fabric for the next 'project'.
Here we have my 'skinnies' (so called because of their very long and slender limbs). I just found some lovely chocolate brown velvet fabric and couldn't wait to make a velvet smock for the skinny rabbit - she has turned out so lovely.
The doll has a pretty floral/cherry dress, which has been aged with coffee, giving her a very prim look. Her hair is needle felted black Wensleydale wool.
