New patterns available on my website.

I've finally finished the pattern for Colin Creep. This is a wonderful 10" jack o'lantern with 15" vine arms. His fingers are wired and can be twisted and bent to help him hold things. You'll find him available as either epattern or mailed paper pattern on Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives.

If you click on the WHAT'S NEW button in the left column, you'll find a couple more new patterns and new finished dolls.

New offerings on The Prim Nest

 I've listed these two offerings on The Prim Nest. The rabbit on the left is made of cotton flannel and is standing on a piece of a vintage farm table that literally fell apart from use and abuse. He stands thanks to supports inside his legs. He's as sweet as he can be with his bag of carrots. This is a OOAK.
   The cat is nearly life size and weighted so it might hold a light door. My mother purchased the fabric in the late 1960's to reupholster a vintage sofa and chair and this was a leftover. The tummy is wool from a thrift store skirt. Her (?) face is hand embroidered with button eyes and sisal whiskers.

New Rabbit at The Red Geranium

38" tall Chef Hase is now at The Red Geranium Framing & Gifts in Mauston Wisconsin.

I created him from a wool cape I found in a thrift store. After a good laundering, it had great texture and just made me think RABBIT. If you wonder about his name, it's the German word for rabbit. I'm sure you've heard of hassenpfeffer which is rabbit stew. This chef isn't in the stew, he's making it!

His hat and coat are entirely authentic and he has his wire whisk ready to use!

You can find a pattern to make a chef like this from muslin (or do what I did and use wool or even flannel or felt) on my website Lucy's Lazy Dayz Primitives. There's also a finished black wool rabbit that looks like him.
