Please meet baby hare Milo.

A textile ornament of a baby hare to display fondly in your home.

Milo was born with two different coloured eyes and this has made her very self aware and a little shy. Mama told her never to be worried about her differences but Milo sure was worried, as the other babies were all staring at her. Well, they would usually have a small smile at first as she walked past them, but when they spotted her other eye – the different coloured one, then those small smiles turned to disconcerting open mouthed stares! And little Milo didn’t know what to say about that and made her nervous. Mama could see that it was causing problems for her and that it would take her quite a while before she built up her confidence levels and would be able to accept her eyes as they are, because no hare would ever be interested in wearing coloured correcting contact lenses, goodness no! so mama took Milo out every day and helped boost her confidence by giving her tasks and activities that she was able to do well. They started off on small things first, like learning the grass names. There are many different species of grass and not all of them are tasty, nor the best for eating either. Some are better for nest lining and others for day bed padding, so together she learnt all about them and their names. Well, Milo was a fast learner and intelligent too, and she soon became very brave out and about with mama and would squeal out the names of the different grasses as they passed them! The other babies soon heard her and wondered what she was referring too and when they saw that she knew so much they wanted to know as well. So, soon mama had a couple of extra babies, grateful babies, who tagged along on these excursions. And they were very happy! Infact, they would look at Milo’s different coloured eyes and try and decide which one was the most beautiful, but because they were equally stunning they could never decide and could only smile! Well, well! Milo was rather flattered with all this attention. She had no idea that her eyes were so pretty, she had only thought that they were strange and abnormal, but here were the other babies thinking how lovely they were! And before the summer was out Milo had made a couple of new friends and she wasn’t as shy as she had been in spring.

Milo is looking forward to a cosy spot on your shelf. She doesn’t mind if it’s made of wood or metal or rocks or whatever, as she will be bringing her own bedding thank you. She knows exactly the grasses needed, and she’ll be making a day bed too! She’d like the window open thanks so that she can go out every day with mama for more lessons, and ofcourse to see her new friends as well. They have had fun in the grasses this summer! You are welcome to come along and play, and er, learn as well. There will be more grasses to identify, mama will be talking about the best ones to eat for energy and keeping your teeth in trim. You will be doing the taste and trimming test too won’t you? Just no complaining if your incisors aren’t sharp enough to snip the stems or you molars aren’t rough enough to grind those long strands down and they get caught in your throat instead. You are rather partial to the taste of grasses aren’t you?


Milo has been made with great care and she has safety eyes. She has been machine and hand sewn by me and will have many ‘unique’ (imperfect, handmade) bits. However, she is not recommended for very young children and is not a toy.

She is made of a piece of thrifted cotton and has a polyfill stuffing, along with a full stomach of dandelion leaves (only joking!).

She stands approx 17cm high and 10cm wide.

Milo is excited about her journey to her forever home!
She also wants you to know that baby hares are called leverets.
She comes with a small tag telling her story.
