storytelling sunday | pick your precious bunny rug

My mum wasn't a big crafter. In fact, I don't remember her ever making anything except a few dresses when I was  teenager (and she blew up her sewing machine making a maternity dress for me when I was pregnant with Chloe.)

But when she was pregnant with my brother (32 years ago), she made a pile of bunny rugs. And being the hoarder that I am, I've had them stashed away in a box since I was about ten.

You've seen the yellow one before, it's been a favourite of mine for photo backgrounds for a while now. But the pink one has a new use, as a coming-home-from-hospital-bunny-rug for a precious bundle.

  9. It's perfect! Babies need a bit of history behind them I reckon and this will do the job very nicely..and maybe she'll be able to keep it for a new generation even further down the line?

    Thanks for this Cate. And now we're looking forward to the follow up -seeing that blanket coming home from hospital again
