PETER RABBIT / Paper Roll Crafts with Wooden Knives


I used a wooden knife to shape the ears. As I felt that would properly express the shape of rabbit ears.  

I wonder if Peter’s standing ears express nervousness? Like when he sneaks into the field of Mr. McGregor.

The official Peter Rabbit site is celebrating the 150th birthday of

author Beatrix Potter.

In her works, Potter wanted to emphasize the natural look.

In 1901 she began publishing her books with 24 stories, that are read

all over the world, across many generations.

The exciting thing is that a new animation movie about Peter the

rabbit is scheduled to come out in the spring of 2018. ​

British actor James Corden will be the voice of  Peter. (Here)
