As I mentioned in the rabbit post, I wanted to make both a little rabbit and a jackrabbit, so here he is.
So different from a tiny, round bunny — it was more like working on an antelope, with long legs for running or bouncing, and those huge, pink ears, veins showing to let the heat out. Perhaps if I make another it will be a jackalope.
He’s not as photogenic as the chipmunk, but I like him more in person — he has a lot of personality, more comedic than straightforwardly cute, but still soft and sweet from the texture of the wool.
This is the largest felt animal I’ve made, at five inches long and seven and a half inches high.
