old rabbit

Here is a project that has taken me over a year to complete. I designed, stitched and stuffed the body last year. A couple of months ago I dug him out and painted, and sanded his body. Last month I dressed him, last week I finished his face. So, you can see, he is already been around awhile but glad to finally be finished. I just love him! Here is the discription I gave him today when I listed him on my Etsy and Artfire accounts.

This ol' rabbit has been working hard in his garden and harvested some carrots. He is an original design by myself, Crystal Martin. He measures +/-36 inches from the tip of his ears to the bottom of his huge feet. After stuffing, his body was spray painted black and sanded to give an aged look. Note that there is wire in his ears so you can bend them to your liking. Clothes were sewn, he was dressed in original clothing also, note the patches on his pants. I drew his facial details on and painted his face. I love his droopy eyes, don't you. I gave him dimensional whiskers from hand-quilting thread since it's stiffer than regular thread. He comes with a bunch of carrots and a tin bucket. This rabbit is weighted so he sits well, and he is quite posable since his legs bend at the knees. He just reminds me of an old soul.
For more photos of him, check him out on or
He would love to be adopted and move to a new home!
