Rabbit Bag


 Here is another beautiful, one-original-only, handmade bag by Scottish artist Annette Tait, inspired by Arabella, her rescue rabbit.

Arabella Rabbit Bag wearing Lochcarron Argyle style Jumper

The price is $78.00, with 10% pledged to the Buckeye House Rabbit Society

order your Rabbit Bag from www.etsy.com

Arabella is wearing her favorite Scottish made Lochcarron argyle pattern jumper. This is a beautifully soft, 70% fine wool Scottish made scarf from the Lochcarron woollen mill in the Scottish borders. The colors are rich and vibrant and very noticeable.

When going on a special outing, why not take your art-accessory bag with you? Arabella loves going out and meeting new admirers and in particular she loves sauntering walks in botanical gardens - with a small bite for lunch! When at home, she loves to doze on a shelf whilst being admired by your house guests. She has delightful brown eyes and a sweet expression.

The bag is made of machine- and hand-sewn parts. The straps are of a strong black webbing. The sides are padded to give the body shape. The lining is a found soft cream cotton. A small pocket has been added which can hold a mobile. The pocket is part of the scarf and has little strands.

The edges are hand- and machine-sewn together with finished seams out. The base and chest are of a black felt. It has a thin fleece padding. The face is hand-painted in waterproof Gutta on a found white felt base. The legs have been drawn in with black fabric pen and machine stitched over. The plastic safety eyes are secured from inside.

This bag has been lovingly made and has a few ‘my gosh!’ and ‘tut tut’ parts due to the hand sewing and sometimes erratic machine sewing (most noticeable around the toe area). I just love this Arabella bag in her fine wool jumper and I hope she will find a loving home and make you happy.

Length approx 28cm x height 21cm x depth 6cm. Handle height from ears is approx 13cm.

Due to the small bits here and there this bag is not recommended for children under 3.


Artist's Statement

I live in Scotland and am a member of Etsy for Animals.  I am a proud rescue mum to two precious gentle rabbits.  I also donate 20% from every pet portrait I do to the rescue of choice.  My art website is -


I look forward to bequeathing more funds your way in the future. When I read the story of Malcolm, I had tears in my eyes! He is so beautiful and looks like my little precious Zai, who is no longer with me. My little boy Wesley had a shocking start to life but slowly he is becoming trusting, less biting, less charging, and now he grinds his teeth for an ear rub. It has taken a few months, but normally I find that it takes about one year before the bad memories go away and they find that the house is danger-free and only filled with love, joy, and happiness. Wesley is coming along nicely!
