I’ve created this rabbit potholder for myself.  I’ve always loved rabbits, as wild animals and in children’s stories (Velveteen Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland), just not as pets.  I tried to make it not too Easterish, since I plan to use it year around.

I couldn’t find the right color of yarn to go with the soft plum/mauve yarn (Lily calls this yarn color ‘Lilac’) so I took some of Lily’s ‘Off White’ yarn and experimented with tea and coffee staining.

It took extra steps of work, but I think the subtle undulating of shades of beige and light browns work well.  It sort of adds more dimension and the cream color reminds me of old parchment paper which plays up the old folklore style of the rabbit.

Here’s a tidbit about my yarn dying:

Here’s a rabbit photo I collected a long time ago to maybe draw with artist pastels.  I just love the curious expression on it’s face.

I know it’s not an Easter bunny potholder, but I could  not resist posting this one. Too Funny.
