Sometimes I see something that inspires me and an old rug is what motivated me to make this new piece.
The original was a cat, but I thought, that would work as a bunny, so a little bit of recreating and a new piece was born.
I used variegated linen on the rabbit and the rest of the colors are an over dyed variegated floss.
I started with the green and realized I didn't have enough, so I added another shade to fill in the rest.
In the old days, woman used scraps of old clothing, so many rugs are multi-colored or done in blocks of color.
I guess I got the look without trying;)
I hope you enjoy my newest piece, it will be for sale, tomorrow night, on ebay.
I hope I can get a good outdoor photo tomorrow, the flash really makes the color more vivid than they are.
