This piece started with a really neat old metal gas lamp base that is a faded brick red in color. I then made a fabric body to which I attached a taxidermy white rabbit head that was ethically sourced. I made an ivory velvet fabric apron. I hand stitched the red velvet trim and hearts to both the front and the back. I added little sleeves with bits of lace on them. Around the rabbit's neck are layers of ivory fabric and lace. To the front side of the apron I attached a vintage metal horn that I found buried between walls in an old house!
He can proudly announce the Queen of Hearts arrival!!
This one of a kind piece stands 28.5" tall and is 13" wide.
