Sharon Purdy sent a fur coat that her late husband had purchased for her over 40 years ago. She told me that the coat was sitting in storage and she wanted to have it out where she could see it so asked us to make two good-size bunnies.
These guys have wired ears so that they can be posed.
Bonnie sent me her mink coat to have two 16″ bunnies made for her daughters. The pocket lining was a light pink velvet so I used it for the ear pads and noses. I used the coat lining material for the paw and foot pads. Bonnie also had me put her daughters’ initials on a foot.
My bunnies have arrived!!! They are SO cute. I love the way you wrapped them, just like a gift. I can’t wait to give them to my girls on Easter.
Thanks again. I will keep your web site on my favorites
They are absolutely adorable. I love the one you did for me using the natural pieces. Mom is going to be so happy! Cathy
Lisa sent me two of her late father’s shirts to make into a bunny for her mother. I used a combination of the two shirts to give contrast to the tummy, muzzle, ears and paw pads. The ears are wired so they can be positioned–otherwise they would have just flopped down.
We got it and I gave it to my Mom yesterday. He’s very cute and my Mom loves him.Thanks so much!!
Maryjane sent me several heirloom items to have me make a bunny for her first granddaughter. She sent a satin carriage blanket and pillow cover that were used by her late husband when he ws an infant and a piece of satin and lace clothing from her late mother-in-law. I tried to use as much of the lace and embroidery from the original items as I could.
Dawn sent several fur coats and stoles that belonged to her late mother to have a variety of animals made in her memory. We ended up with five bears, two bunnies, a killer whale and two ponies. The bears and bunnies were made of mink and seal, the whale was made of seal and mink, the ponies were made of mouton, seal and mink.
You can see the bears on my bear page or in my bear gallery.
Hi Liane. Received the bears today. They are wonderful. My daughter loves her pony and came just in time for her 8th grade moving up! I will definitely recommend you to everyone I see. Thanks again
