Brown Owls Melbourne 3000, March Gathering ~ Bunnies and Books


So...... as we'll not be meeting again before Easter we decided to bring Easter just a leetle bit forward and get into BUNNY mode! Maybe you have a young 'un amongst you who would like to receive a Bunny for Easter and so this March meet will have you started in good time.

My all time favourite bunny pattern can be found here:

The rabbit in the pic above is made, with a bit of adaptation, from this pattern. Her name is Betsy, she now belongs to Milly and she is riding 'bunny on bunny' stylee a jelly mould that was once lent to me by the lovely Pip Lincolne, in order to make a rabbit jelly for my boyfriend for his Christmas 2009 present, when I was aghast to find out he had never eaten such a thing - ever. Anyway.... I digress.....

Feel free to share your bunny pattern in the RSVP's below too. As you will all know by now, crochet is my thing, but I'm sure you will have amongst you a treasure trove resource of bunny patterns for stitch, knit, hook, paper/glue/stick, macrame, etc etc etc - so lets share.

It was also suggested that it would be fun to exchange BOOK ideas, so how about you all bring your favourite craft related book along for others to have a look at, which should give us a veritable library of crafty inspirational wonderousness. (Lee - I'm looking forward to seeing that Vintage Knitting book!).

when: Tuesday 6th March 2012
at: 6.30 - 9pm
where: The Parlour, Madame Brussels, level 3, 59-63 Bourke St, Melbourne 3000
bring: BYO project of your choice (bunny themed if you like or not if you dont like) + your favourite craft book
cost: no fee for attendance but you may like to purchase a drink or a delight from the Madame Brussels menu, by way of a thankyou for room usage
RSVP: in the comments section below please - indicating your name eg. Sue H
