Garden Rabbit in green corduroy bib overalls

Primitive rabbit Hiram Hare is a 29" tall rabbit made from a vintage wool blanket. His corduroy pants used to be a corduroy shirt. I've just listed him in my ETSY SHOP where you'll find more photos that show just how special he is. His eyes are applique'd, painted and have button iris/pupil stitched in place. I also added a painted highlight dot.  The nose is a small triangle shaped pillow of light brown ultrasuede detailed with painted shading and hightlight. He comes with the fabric carrot shown in the photo.

Meet Robbie and Rupert

 Robbie Rabbit (on the left) is a new addition to my WEBSITE . He's made of clean recycled wool and is 29" of adorable. His cheeks are stitched in place, his nose is brown faux suede that was shaded with paint and also stitched in place. His eyes are stitched on then shaded with paints. The iris/pupil is a button.
   His coat is wool with vintage buttons. The pants fabric that looks like burlap. He even has a gray wool tail.

Rupert Rabbit  (on the right) is very large at 36" (sits 20" high in a child's chair or on a bench). and he's now available in my ETSY SHOPPE. He's made of the same wool coat. (I love things made from real wool. It has such a great feel). He wears olive green corduroy pants (with a tail) and his jacket is olive green and black herringbone twill tweed wool. He has 3 olive shaded vintage buttons stitched to the front. His felt hat has a hatband that matches his jacket and a handmade carrot stitched where the hat band overlaps. His features sewn and painted the same way I did Robbie's.

New Large Primitive Black Wool Rabbit

Robert is a large 35 inch tall rabbit made of fabric recycled from a black wool winter coat. His wool hat was formerly a blazer and the pants were a pair of women's pants. Oh yes, the buttons are from a coat. He sits 21 inches high.
     The fabrics are all clean and he's stuffed with mostly polyester fiberfill but there's fabric trimming in his butt to help him sit so nicely.
   His eyes are painted cotton hand stitched in place. I painted the edges and used brown pastels to shade the inner edge of his eye. I stitched a button in the middle
   You can find him on my WEBSITE   or in my ETSY SHOPPE with more photos.
