Woolly Mama Greeting Cards

Just this past week I’ve worked up five designs for a small card line which are now available to buy on my Etsy store and in local tea rooms.

I’ve been so overwhelmed by the positive feedback – it’s really encouraged me to think of more occasion designs to add to the collection.

In my range so far I have a generic party card which can be used for birthdays or other celebrations, an Easter card (which has been so popular), an engagement card, a good luck card, and a new baby card (which blew up my instagram!)

Here they are:

I’ve also been working with individual letter stamps and an ink pad – which has been a little tricky to get the hang of – but once you master your spacing and alignment technique it gets a lot easier.

And I’ve even had requests for personalisation which has been really lovely to add.

Thanks to everyone for the positivity and orders so far. Watch this space for more designs!

And If you’d like to make your own Easter bunny here’s the pattern.

Free Easter Bunny Crochet Pattern:

*US Terminology*

Round 1: Work 4 sc into a magic ring and tighten

Round 2: seamlessly move on to round 2 by working 2 sc in each st from round 1 (8)

Round 3: seamlessly move on to round 3 by working *2 sc into the first st, 1 sc into the next st* around (12)

Round 4: seamlessly move on to round 4 by working *2 sc into the first st, 1 sc into the next 2 st* around (16)

Round 5: seamlessly move on to round 5 by working *2 sc into the first st, 1 sc into the next 3 st* around (20) (this is your body)

Round 6: ch 2 and dc into the same starting st, then work 2 tc into the very same starting st

Round 7: work 2 tc, 1 dc and 1 hdc into the next st along (this is your head)

Fasten off.

Round 8: reattach your yarn at the end of the 1st tc you did and ch 6, dc into the 2nd ch from the hook and into the next 4 ch, join to the end of the 2nd tc with a sl st (this is your first ear)

Round 9: ch 6, dc into the 2nd ch from the hook and into the next 4 ch, join to the 2nd tc with a sl st (this is your second ear)

Fasten off.

To make the tail, ch 2 and work 5 hdc into the 2nd ch from the hook. Join the last hdc to the first with a sl st. Leave 2 longish ends to thread through the body and tie on the reverse.

Happy Easter!
