On my work table today...

le maigre liévre

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love animals, especially rabbits and hares. There is rabbit toile wallpaper in my powder room, which gives me insane license to put my papier mache ones in there.
I really didn't need any excuse to make up a pattern and sew this one, along with a few friends.
Le maigre liévre (the skinny hare) is not finished yet, but I am  in love with his imperfect little self. No realism here, just all personality. Outrageously large ears and legs, very large MOP button joints.
Since I was in a pattern making mood, I thought I'd create a deer head as well...still working out the antlers material. Clearly, I needed the break from all the knitting and crocheting I have been doing.
I will post my progress as I go...I have had a request for a wolf, we'll see!


  1. I just love him so!!! He's beautiful...xxoo, Dawn

    1. Thank you so much Dawn...can't wait to finish the others, so much fun to see them come to life!


I love hearing from you and value your thoughts. Thank you for stopping by!
