Who is behind Funny Bunny?

Hello, my name is Helena Hultén and I live in Sweden. I love vintage style and fashion. I like to design and sew. Vintage and vintage looking dolls are awesome as muse and models. So that’s how I began with collecting on dolls. When I began with Blythe dolls I felt that I have found something that is spot on “me!” and eventually also Emerald Witch dolls for a different aesthetics. Finally also Sindy dolls, who at beginning I thought were boring but they grew on me as I became more nostalgic, because a Sindy doll is what I had as a little girl, a blonde one which I sadly lost.

I am a craft addict. I am the one who have to try out every kind of craft, the more unusual the better. With that comes a big stash of materials and tools. Most people know of me for my sewing but I do not want to limit myself to that.

I do not only create physical items, I like to create digitally too. Vector drawing in CorelDraw, if I may say so I am quite good on that one. I also use that software to create sewing patterns, mostly doll size.

Craft something digitally and then turn it into physical product is something I really enjoy and I have tried on making graphic prints for fabrics, and oh how fun is that! In that category I also create machine embroidery design files by hand digitizing (using the software Embird Studio), a whole science on its own.

Other than above I am also interested in late Victorian fashion as well as 18th century fashion. I have just begun with making reproduction clothes, both the visible layers and the foundation garments, striving for relatively authentic look but not necessarily 100% authentic in making, for myself. I have joined a society where we meet wearing our clothes we made or purchased. The outfit I am wearing in the photo is aiming to look like Victorian fashion, circa 1895 to be exact.
