Albrecht, a Spring Hare






I just finished this guy tonight. His name is Albrecht after Albrecht Durer. His drawing of a young hare was the inspiration for this guy. Little Albrecht is 7 3/4 inches long and 6 inches tall to his ears. This one is a bit different for me as he has no wire frame. He's needle felted densely and has a bit of heft. He has gently combable llama fur that was hand rooted in. He is adorned with a removable sheer lavendar and white polka-dot ribbon that has a hand cut felt flower permanently attached.

He is awesome Robin! You know when I saw the thumbnail I immediately thought of Durer's hare?

Just reading the headline and watching the picture in the Dashboard I had the impression of Dürer at an instant... A real masterpiece!
