Mrs. Rabbit and her children
My mother, Sharon Hanehan, is an amazing crafter and I just love collaborating with her. She does the hard work and I get to do the fun part.
All of these characters will be available during my update tomorrow, but I thought they deserved some extra attention since so much extra love and care was put into making them. My sweet mother and I bat ideas back and forth until finally I tell her what to make (I'm very bossy I've heard, hehe), then she does her magic and takes fluffy wool and needle felts it into the shape of bunnies and chicks. She sends me the naked bodies and then I cut, glue, sew, dress and accessorize each one so they look dapper and charming and well...civilized. I use some of my favorite and coveted materials when dressing them up and take a lot of time on each one to make sure they're perfect and unique (all the felt is real wool, not the plastic stuff you find at the craft store). And we're both always so thrilled with the results and we hope you are too!
Mars and Marcia are a little less refined, but instead prefer the natural, just out of the nest look
She wears a felt and cotton outfit carefully sewn (even the vintage ric rac is carefully stitched on) and carries a wicker basket on her back. Pink chicks and eggs are essential for any outing you know.
Daniel and Sara Rabbit are named after my siblings. They are quite proper in nature and each wear specially tailored clothing
Henrietta is an old new chick and prefers to spend her time milling about the garden collecting eggs. Her straw hat keeps the sun out of her eyes and her wicker basket keeps the eggs neat and tidy. And how strange...notice that she's a chick carrying a chick?
Hans is proud of his German heritage and proves it by sporting a German hat and vest. Catch him on a good day and you'll see him wearing his lederhosen
