A Potted Folk Art Rabbit & Sunflowers

Just added this new item to my Etsy Shop! I'm working on a pattern for this sneaky little guy too.

I had a customer want some bunnies in a terra cotta pot for her shop and this is what I came up with. The overall piece stands almost 14".

Here is a close up of the sunflowers which I really enjoyed creating. I will be making some of these to sell separately too. They are painted material mounted on a piece of rusty wire.

A Harvest Mouse!!!

See how far behind I am........................... not really! Actually, I'm stocking up for my shows this year!!! I used a Soft In the Head pattern for these cute little guys! I hope to have mice for every season tucked in all my little spaces. This one sits proudly on a pumpkin holding a piece of candy corn.

More Mice!

First we have a "Valentine Mouse in a Pouch". It measures about 8" by 3" and is made from a coffee/vanilla stained osnaburg fabric. I love working with the wool appliques. On this one I have a double heart from red and black wool.

I also did one with my favorite flowers......... Coneflowers.............. appliqued with mustard, black and green wool. Tonight I will finish some up with appliqued stars on the pouch.

Rabbits Rabbits and more Rabbits!!!

It took 2 weeks but I finally finished up 12 of these bunnies! They are a whooping 30" tall with the ears standing up! They were ordered by 3 shops and I made one to put in my Etsy Shop. Right before I got the order for the bunnies I had cut out 2 penny rugs which laid on the table for the first week. I did manage to finish one of them this week too. Also, if you notice I have some really cute mice on a pumpkin mounted in a zinc lid between the bunnies. I need to add a candy corn to him before I post pictures. Well.......... back to work!!! More bunnies on the cutting table but no clothes to mess with....... these little guys are in a pot!

Mice are popping up everywhere!!!

I found some old looking graters at a show the other day and brought them home hoping I could come up with something to do with them. This is what I came up with............ mice seem to be popping up in anything so I decided to put him in a wool made tulip and attach it to the shredder. He is now listed in my ETSY shop . I'm also working on a Sunflower and putting one in an old China teacup!
