LUCKY RABBIT'S FOOT
Easter is coming, rabbits around my house are thanking their lucky stars! What started as a softee for a baby, became a bunny who looks like he is just begging to have his tummy tickled, that led to an applique, which led to a bunny rug, and then before you know it, we have "Lucky Rabbits' Feet" !!
Here is Hamo - proper title Hamish. He is a giant breed - the girls in my family like large pets.
When my nieces where much younger, the family made a trip to some friends who lived in the country. The man of the house was a huntin/shootin kinda guy and he presented both the girls with a rabbit's foot each. It took a moment or two, but then they both realised with horror what a rabbit's foot was! Guess what Auntie Sue has for you both - bwwaahhh......
I have made these into bag hangers and key holders. I am thinking they would be cute filled with lavender for the undies drawer, catnip for a cat toy, or a toy for a small dog - sorry O'Reilly, you could choke on one! The digitized files are available over on Etsy - 3 sizes for $5.00. If you want one ready made - contact me through the email address on the side bar.
