It all happened by accident, really. A few months ago we were chatting around the kettle at work, waiting for the water to boil for tea. One colleague said she had a baby shower and she really wanted to give something homemade to the twin boys, but she couldn’t really craft. I volunteered to make something, I was waiting to try out some patterns I’ve had for ages. I almost had to pull an all-nighter, but the bunnies I decided on came out great. So great, in fact, that I got three orders from the shower. And from that a few more. And from that one for FIFTY from a baby shop in Johannesburg. And from that an order from a baby shop in Stellenbosch. The magazine I work for, picked it up and wrote about it, which brought more orders. And so on and so forth.
So now I’m thinking, should I turn this into a little side business? It could never be big,this kind of handmade is just too time consuming for the money it generates. But while I’m thinking, here’s a picture of the bunny. Cute, inne? I need a name for the l’il slugger, and I’m thinking of customising each one with a bell or a heart or a handwritten letter sewn inside. Maybe a hat or a tie or an ear clip?
