MINIATURE PETER RABBIT

 This little fellow is a commission piece and he has taken me forever.  Even though he turned out spendidly, and I love his little face, I've decided not to do commission pieces anymore.  It takes me twice as long, when I am working towards someone else's approval, even though it may be something I've done before.   Soooo, even though I hate to disappoint customers, there will be no more stress for me - I will make only what I fancy :o)

Peter is just 3 inches tall and made from antique mohair.  He is hand painted with many layers of permanent fabric paints and is fully jointed, with german glass eyes.  He is stuffed with excelsior and has ultra-suede ears and foot pads.  Peter has a removable  hand made jacket (with hand made buttons and carrots) and tiny shoes made from wood and leather.  Peter fits inside his little collectible embossed tin. I hope you enjoy him :o)

He's fabulous, but I can understand the pressure commission pieces must cause, having just accepted my first commission!

Thanks Katy! I don't know why commissions affect me so much. The drain all of my creativity. I loved how Peter turned out but there will be no more commissions for me :o) Good luck with yours! ;o)
