Lizzy Beth Bunny
For sale on Prims Nest
This rabbit has been on my mind for several years. As an artist there comes a time when what you have envisioned and often drawn must be created. This is the case with Bunny Rabbit Lizzy Beth. She wanted to be created and I am thrilled with the results.
Bunny Lizzy Beth is a 14 ½” tall hand hooked free standing doll. She was hand drawn on linen and hooked with #8 cut strips of wool. The wools used are quality wools and some are hand dyed. The pattern of the wool used for her head, ears, hands and legs really gives her the appearance of having fur. Her dress is various shades of purple and the apron is various shades of pink. Every color used is muted. Notice the bow on her head matches the pink of her apron. The dress has a white collar at the neck, the bottom dress hem is also trimmed in white as well as the sleeves adding a lacy look to the dress. The neck collar also has a little rusty tin bell. Notice the ties of the apron on the back these are strips of wool. Around Lizzy Beth’s legs I created the look of a field of grass filled with raised flowers.
