Meet 'Old Bill', a new creation (OOAK) from my workroom in Lyme Regis, England.
Old Bill is made from long tousle haired, finest quality mohair.
Inner ears and paw pads are 100% cotton ticking with an inner red cotton tartan peeping through the 'worn out' patches.
His feet are super long - all the better for hopping!
His tummy and legs contain lots of steel weightings for a lovely 'phlumphy', weighty feel. He is filled with pure alpaca fleece from the alpacas on my farm (www.lymealpacas.co.uk).
Old Bill has 5 cotter pin hardware joints.
He has black glass eyes, lower lids edged with cotton fabric and airbrushed black for texture and shading. There are trimmed and shaded patches on arms.
Old Bill's muzzle is trimmed and shaded. He has magnificent whiskers made from real pony tail hair. His nose and mouth are simply stitched with black perle thread.
His bunny tail is needle felted from staples of white alpaca fibre.
He is wearing a double layered calico frayed ruff hand dyed in vintage blue and strung onto elastic.
He is wearing a vintage police whistle on some chain links and thread.
This adorable shabby bunny measures 42cm from ear tips to toe, or 32cm if you don't count his long ears, He sits neatly looking worn and adorable.
He is looking for a wonderful home where she will be treasured and loved.
Old Bill bunny comes with his own signed Certificate of Authenticity and hang-tag
