First there was Holly, who wanted one of my bucket bags...
but made from fabric with rabbits on it. Not as easy as it sounds. There are plenty of childrens nursery type fabrics with rabbits on them, but not so many which might work when made into a bag.
So, with a lot of help from google I managed to get a shortlist, but none of them quite fit the bill. Fortunately the customer also did a bit of searching and found this rabbit fabric.
In order to try and make the most of the rabbits, but without making a bag which is too pale and doesn't wear well, we've decided to make a patchwork patter with the rabbits and green, pink and brown chenille.
I'll post some pictures when it's made.
My second request that week came from one of my regular customers looking for fabric with ballroom dancers on it. I have to confess this one nearly defeated me. But with a little help from some Facebook and Craft Forum friends I managed to find this fabric.
Along with another custom order for the same person who requested a square purse with owls on it.
