Who says a hare can’t go trick or treating?
Especially if he gets carrots in his pumpkin bucket!
While I was working on Tweed I kept thinking of a memory I had of my daughter at
Halloween when she was around 9 or 10.
I made a rabbit costume by using a white sheet to make her
a sack like dress, and a mask for her face.
It was a great face with pink and white felt stitched on the white
with big ears and whiskers, but the ears were so floppy!
I didn’t know then what to do to make them stand up
so she spent the whole night holding up her ears
while carrying a pumpkin bucket and treating for candy.
Trickster doesn’t have to hold up his ears
and he not only has carrots in his pumpkin bucket
but a carrot necklace too!
He is entirely made with my hand dyed wool fabric and a mohair tail.
He was great fun to make while remembering my little girl who is all grown up now.
I know this won’t make up for your night of ear holding misery Jess,
but maybe you will get a laugh out of Trickster!
