I absolutely love this cobalt blue vintage fabric, so I couldn't resist making a lavender rabbit with it!
Each rabbit is made from recycled, vintage fabric
Its ears are filled with chemical-free, French lavender
They also have snowy white felt bobtails!
You can either place them on your pillow or dressing table to help you float off to sleep. Or hang in your wardrobe to make your clothes smell nice, perfect when spring cleaning
Lavender is a good moth repellent.
Lavender makes an eco-friendly alternative to conventional moth balls which are full of hazardous chemicals
The lavender rabbits have proved to be a popular addition to Pouch's etsy store, so look out for more colour combinations in the the coming weeks :)

Some time ago I bought a jar of haberdashery pieces from a jumble sale, I blogged about it here
I finally got round to washing the vintage buttons in the jar.
There was a thin layer of dust on all the buttons so I washed them in mild, soapy water with a soft toothbrush!
There's no doubt that my favourite is this pearl-effect flower shape button, and it looks even better now its been cleaned!
