I didn't make her, but a very good friend of mine did. I used to be heavily into the primitives and this was one of those things I adored.
Cute fabrics make up the dress and the color has vintage lace and buttons.
Have you ever noticed that you can look at a stuffed animal and it speaks to your heart? Sometimes I just have to avoid them, because if not, I would want to bring them all home with me.
The face on this bunny is just too sweet for words. She was made many years ago and I would classify her as vintage. I have had her for over 30 yrs now, so vintage she is, at least to me.
I never knew what a picker was until we met. She had two pickers that used to travel across America looking for quilts to cut up. She never used quilts in perfect condition.
I also remember her telling me, wait until the China invasion and the prices fall, the demand falls and this craft shall too, pass.
I didn't believe her, but after seeing, buying and washing a quilt made in China, I do get her point.
You can't wash something with 1/8" seams and expect it to last.
I am putting these primitives on my website for sale this week. Come on over and have a visit, smile and just say hi.
I hope you have enjoyed the sweetness these critters offer.
