Jackalope Guillotine

I've been making bunny heads like crazy for the past few weeks. I want to get as many done as possible before I release my new fabric button jewelry designs in February. I'm designing them now, and let me tell you, this might be my best set yet.
Every evening I snuggle up on the couch with the cat, balls of yarn, bags of safety eyes and my crochet hook. The cat is in heaven. She loves tv time, and there's been lots of it lately. Send netflix suggestions.

Featured Item of the Day

Llama Earrings
Every fabric button is handmade by Rachel O. Earring measures approx .5 inch wide, and has a hypoallergenic, raw titanium post. Posts are nickel-free and cadmium free. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and ear are NOT included. You will receive one pair of earrings as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your earrings, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Earrings look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time. Check out my listings for other super(duper) earring designs.

Cactus Hair Pins
Cactus are some of the easiest houseplants, and one of the most stylish!

Rachel O's is proud to offer the ultimate in couture fabric covered button jewelry.

Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O herself. The sweet softness of fabric buttons accents any hairstyle. I like to think of my jewelry as being tiny canvases, wear my art with pride!

Each button measures approx .5 inch wide, and is firmly attached to a quality hair pin. You will receive one pair of hairpins as seen in the first photo. The other photos are for hair and size reference as well as to show what the back of the hairpin looks like.

Due to the handmade nature of your hairpins, yours will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome.

Featured Item of the Day

Conjoined Twin Jackalopes
Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 7x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).

Antlers are hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.

Ruler is in inches and is not included with purchase.

Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

Featured Item of the Day

Hand Painted Cat Pin
Rachel O’s wood pins start out as little sketches of my crazy ideas. I digitize each drawing, then cut and etch onto wood via my laser. Then the fun begins! I paint each pin by hand. This means that every pin is just a little bit different, but equally awesome! I love how the wood grain is unique to each piece.

Pins each have a one inch bar pin on the back.

I don’t take custom orders, but I do take requests. If you have a pin idea, let me know! If it’s something I can draw, I might just release it as a pin.

Please do not get wood pins wet.

The Great Jackalope Flaggerdoot of 2018

I'm super excited to share that I'll be selling all the jackalope you can handle at the Kansas City Oddities & Curiosities Expo at the end of March. 
I've always wanted to do a show where I just bring jackalope. I have a whole new booth setup in mind. I have a 10x10 space, and I've been crocheting up a storm to make enough bunnies.
Follow along with the process on instagram @fabulouswhimsy. I'm tagging all the process photos #thegreatjackalopeflaggerdootof2018 (A flaggerdoot is the technical term for a herd of jackalope).
