After 10 years of making strictly bears, I decided to challenge myself to come up with a completely new and fresh pattern… a sweet little bunny! It took a lot of trial and error, but I finally tweaked the pattern to my absolute liking. Now I’m having fun tweaking it some more! Marcella is my 4th little bunny I’ve offered for sale. I really wanted my rabbits to be instantly recognizable as Wild Thyme creations, but still have a lot of distinctive bunny styling as well. It was those sweet little curvy rabbit legs that took the longest to conjure.
I wanted them to look realistic and aesthetically pleasing when standing as well as when sitting. I’ve been placing tiny magnets in their feet as well so that they can stand alone when placed upon anything with steel in it. This darling little one was created from a lovely fabric. It’s a gorgeous shade of soft taupe with little guard hairs that give Mariella the sweetest softest look to her. Marcella’s muzzle is creamy ivory Malden Mills fabric and her inner ears and rear paw pads are ultra suede.
Mariella measures in at 4 and 1/2 inches standing up straight (not including her ears!). She has the cutest curvy bunny legs. Her arms and legs have been given a wire armature, so she can hold soft poses. I’ve also added some tiny magnets in her feet to aid in standing. Place her on anything metal and she’s stand right up for you! I used an Altoids can underneath the backdrop.
She has eyes of black onyx beads with an subtle shading near her nose and eyes. Her face has been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches. Mariella’s ears are lightly wired as well, so you can bend them or straighten them to suit your whim or hers.
She also sports a sweet little ruff made of carefully gathered and looped silk ribbon in shades of deep forest and raspberry. Mariella’s collar is not designed to be removed.
As always, I’ve paid very close attention to making sure that my miniatures have all the detail and intricacy of a much larger creation. I am also a stickler for proportion. I really like for them to pass for “a big guy” until you see a picture of one in my hand.
Your little bunny will arrive lovingly gift boxed and with her own photographic Certificate of Authenticity.
