Rustic rabbit

I was inspired to put some of my own patterns into my shop this week after making up these rustic rabbits from a baught pattern. I think he is pretty handsom and it was a breath of fresh air making up someone else's pattern.

I made him out of an old black wool coat I had stuffed in the back of my wardrobe
(hence the fluff).
I think the coat will have a better life as a toy rabbit.
I have also been collecting the sand from the local beaches we surf in a mission to fill this jar.

Its amazing how different the beaches can be down here. Not just the colour of the sand but also from rugged cliff and wild sea to sand dunes and calm clear water.

There is a definate pattern from the north and south coasts amerging.
