New Spring listing - Seamus Finnegan w shillelagh

    I listed this gentleman rabbit last night. He's made of muslin and button jointed. He has button eyes and string whiskers and there is a "cottontail" on his back side.
    He's wearing a lined black and tan wool blend vest. There are brass safety pins holding the front closed and there's a gold tone "watch chain" draped across his chest. Seamus is too poor to afford a watch so he fastened his door key to the the chain.
     Seamus is a very Irish rabbit with his shillelagh. I made the walking stick from a piece of tree root I discovered after a neighbor had some trees uprooted. It was so gnarly and interesting I had to carry it home. It's perfect here. I scrubbed it, sealed and stained it. It's actually sewn to his hand and the toe of his foot and makes it possible for him to stand all by himself as you can see.
    This rabbit and many more new items can be found at Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives.
