for rabbit) linen ribbon.

MY INSPIRATION POSTCARD FOR MY DESIGN
I am a little poseable too.....
I designed his body to be tall and skinny and to stand on his
own like the vintage rabbits on the old postcards. He is made
of hand dyed cream color mohairs then I hand tinted him in
black spots all over his body! He has
a different style rabbit head than what I have done in the past.
His ears are both lined with vintage cream cotton,
then I aged and lightly shaded soft pink inside. His eyes are black german
glass and shaded. His nose is sparse-stitched in pink thread
and then I applied my signature color wax technique to make it
look older. His neck is jointed & swivels.
He can stand all by himself.
I gave him many various pieces of vintage laces & trims around
and an antique chippy white boot button. Also this fabulous
french enamel tag that has french graphics on it. I also
handstamped the word LAPIN on a piece of vintage fabric. He has an aged cotton pom-pom
that is also black spotted, for his cute little
tail too! He is somewhat poseable as he has wire armature arms
He really did turn out FABULOUS and if you love antique
vintage rabbits & old vintage shabby pieces then you won't
be disappointed in this guy!
He is firmly stuffed
with woodwool and sand & gravel,for weight and
texture. His neck is hardware jointed.
His body has wire armature.
