Folk Artist Cathy Pendleton introduces you to the art of creating large chair sitter folk art Hares. These furry characters make great holiday door greeters for your indoor entry way!
Cathy shows you how to make two variations of these hares. The smaller one measures 21″ tall in the sitting position, and the larger one is 30″. No matter the season, you can change out the little ornaments they are holding in their paws. Cathy will show you how.
Whether you are a beginner to machine sewing or a novice, Cathy will show you a number of techniques including:
Wiring the ears to make them posable
Paint wash applications to transform shiny synthetic fur to an antique find
Altering body size to accommodate vintage clothing finds
Cathy will also teach you how to make the hare’s clothing or the possibility of using vintage finds or sentimental family heirlooms for dressing.
Exclusive Hare Pattern Included.
