This olde rabbit looks to be straight off the farm. He is made of painted,sanded,stained and baked muslin. His eyes are old buttons,his nose has been needle-sculpted and embroidered. He has an osnaburg muzzle,puffy, and stitched on. He sports some mighty fine rusty wire whiskers, and hauls a load of gruNgy old carrots, that have been wired to him. He is just about 17 inches long and 12 inches wide, with the annie, about 4 inches deep.

15" tall and 14" long, this wonderful horse is made from a coarsely woven vintage muslin flour sack. His ears and legs are hand sewn in place. He has embroidered eyes. The legs have white glue dipped, dowels inserted into them. The hose is stained with my coffee,vanilla mixture. The mane and tail are combed flax fibers, hand stitched in place.
The base is pine wood, painted black, sanded and stained. The horses legs are glued into holes drilled into the base. The metal wheels have also been distressed and are nailed into the base. The pull is a black wooden thread spool attached to the base with a length of jute twine.
