This Cottontail Rabbit Art Doily is darling. The design was created and made by Ruth Sandra Sperling of RSS Designs In Fiber! Truly One-of-A-Kind decor piece! This doily was done in Filet Crochet with Textured Stitches added for dimension!
In the Center is a Gray-Brown Rabbit with a White Cottontail sitting on the ground with some flowering twigs — then around that are Crocheted Green “Vines” with “Leaves” representing a “Bush”!!

The Full piece is 11 1/4 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches high —
– The inner Beige rectangle with the Rabbit is 7 1/8 inches wide by 4 1/8 inches wide —
– and the Border of “Vines” around it is 2 inches all around.
– There is an edging on the Green Border done in the Gray Beige.
My INSPIRATION is real-life Nature!
For years and years, as I walked through the wild fields around the semi-rural area I lived in, I would see these adorable Desert Cottontail Rabbits with their little white tails as they raced through the fields – sometimes they jump down a hole under a Bush (I assume one of their nests or burrows) – or just hide in one! They use to outrun my dog (who was a pretty fast runner) all the time!!
This is a great little piece of Art or Decor for Home or Office if you are a lover of Nature, Wildlife on Earth!!

Ruth Sandra Sperling – Owner/Designer
Hi! I’m Ruth Sandra Sperling – the “RSS” in RSS Designs In Fiber, an Independent who Crochets, Knits and Sews and sells some of the Finished Products – some of which you will see here in my Etsy Shop!
How did it start? Actually, I had been Crocheting since my Teens – drawing and doing other Arts and Crafts since I was a Toddler. In 2001 I had started spending a bunch of time Crocheting all kinds of things: an Afghan, a Sweater – and kept doing more in 2002: a Mat, a Bag, a Lap Blanket, a Stuffed Egg, a Stuffed Pillow, Hats and Scarves, a Stuffed Giraffe, a children’s outfit – some of patterns I had and some I made up on my own!
A Passion for Fiber Arts
Then, for the Winter Holidays of 2002, I participated in a local Holiday Boutique – and had some Hats and Scarves on consignment in a local store. I found out that some people like buying things I made. Then I was asked if I would crochet some Thread Crochet Doilies to sell locally – and some of them sold and some people wanted Custom-made Thread Crochet items — and my little Handmade Craft Business started – and has been going ever since!
I NOW make a variety of things!! In Thread Crochet, I make all kinds of things from small Trinkets (Coasters and other Decorations) to average-sized Doilies to large Centerpieces and Table Runners – even a Tablecloth – mostly Decor, but also some Personal Accessories or Things To Wear. In Yarn, I both Crochet and Knit: Decor, Personal Accessories, Hats and Scarves, Bags (including Laptop Sleeves).
