I have just listed the Sweet Bunny Pin Keep on Ebay. He is a new design and it was fun to make him!
He's both adorable and useful.
Bunny is make from double dense beige and cream mohair, which has been hand painted with many layers of permanted fabric paints, for a realistic look. He has a jointed head, and is stuffed with excelsior and weighted with stainless steel shot. Sweet bunny has German amber gass eyes, molded wool felt ears, nylon whiskers and an embroidered face. He sits on a red, wool felt Christmas ball/pincushion, very firmly stuffed with polyester and decorated with embroidered silver snowflakes and hand made wood felt mistletoe leaves and Fimo berries. The ball is firmly glued to a tiny vintage, silver plated goblet. Bunny is secured with thread to the Christmas ball and can easily removed, still leaving a lovely pin cushion, and I will leave that decision to his new owner. Please remember, the goblet is vintage so it has minor flaws. The entire pin keep stands 9 1/4 inches tall. The bunny is 4 /12 inches tall by himself. You can view his Ebay auction by clicking Ebay Listings
I will be listing another pin keep in the next week. You can preview Smiley Le Pew at the bottom of the photos. Thanks for peeking :o)
