Kit ~ A Jaunty Rabbit ~ Chocolate mohair
$145.00 Sold out
Create a very sweet mohair, fully jointed rabbit! He is about 12" heel to ear tips. A perfect Spring companion, this fellow has German glass eyes and 100% wool felt ear linings. You will also receive all materials to create his woolen appliquéd vest and a few carrots for him to munch on.
~ There are multiple ways to create movable joints in teddy bears and I show more than one style when I'm teaching. However, my kits include cotter pin joints (even for arms and legs) because most people have a needle nose plier around to tighten them with, the other types of jointing hardware take more specialized tools. If you like (Cotter Keys to turn cotter pins are available from Edinburghimports.com)
** I now include a bag of plastic pellets in jointed bunny & bear kits should you choose to make him a little "squishy" ~ YIPPEE ~ (To use pellets in the belly, add some regular stuffing to neck and shoulder area, and a teeny bit in the bumm. Pour in pellets to desired squishiness and top off with a layer of stuffing to more easily close the back opening.)

*** Hand dyed wool, mohair or velvet colors in kits will vary often as dye lots do change. Many fabrics I dye myself and some I purchase from others, this variance in dye lots is what makes these fun projects unique!
