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.
