So, why the bunny? Around 2 years ago we eventually bought our own house. I have always grown up with pets and, after living in a rented house for a few years where we couldn't have pets, we knew that when we got our own place we were definitley going to have pets. We couldn't have cats because my husband is allergic and we felt that a dog would have to be alone at home too long during the day. We had heard of people keeping house rabbits and so, after much research, we contacted the wonderful people at Manchester and Salford RSPCA and became Bunny Parents to rescued rabbits Hansel and Gretel.

So, this is where the name came from! I am in the process of creating cuddly bunny toys with clothes that can be changed and I am hoping to make these to sell with the money generated going to charity to support the rescue and rehoming of bunnies! Here is the one I made today, he needs some clothes and I need to work on my eye and nose and tooth sewing but I am confident that they will be fab!

He hasn't got any clothes yet though but I am going to make him some!
