I have long been a fan of original art stuffed animals. There are many wonderful artisans among my fellow Etsy seller that have amazing talents!
I think, for me , it is the fond memories of playtime they evoke when I look at them. Mine were never as fancy, though.
I do still have a favorite monkey plush doll from the 1960's as a reminder of my childhood, and his stretched yellow suspenders that no longer fit are a testament to my love for him.
I am making this original artist rabbit with those care free memories in tow. I like to give all my primitive dolls character, and this one will be no exception.
In a historical style, I am using German glass eyes for the first time, and a 5 way jointed body design. Wish me luck!
I have some 100% cashmere that has been crying out to become transformed for quite some time, and it will make a super soft finished rabbit.
Here is my rabbit beginning to take shape. I like the way his conductor hat turned out, to this point
Stay tuned for the finished Spring Express conductor bunny! I am so excited to get him finished.
