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

The very first week Hermes was at kindergarten he discovered the baking corner. Normally the smallest hares at kindergarten don’t get to play in the baking area because there is so much to learn first about all the many cakes and pastries and biscuits, not to mention the fly-away flour and heavy rolling pin and sharp cookie cutters plus the whole rigmarole of cleaning up. But Hermes was determined to have a good look around and made his way over there to touch and hold and poke. The other babies were far too busy to notice his disappearance and the mama-teachers were all too engrossed with the new babies in the class to even see one wayward leveret busying himself in the corner and so every day he was there, for quite some time, as he took in all the different aspects of baking. Hermes was a fast learner for one so small and when a class was being held, he dashed over and squeezed to the front. In no time he had his tiny paws covered in flour and was rolling out his first batch of biscuits! Yummy! He decorated them with small scratches and impressions from his paws and then secretly ate a few of the raw pastry bits, because they had all been told not to eat it as it would give them a sore stomach, but Hermes wanted to know what it tasted like. And it was remarkably tasty he thought. The teacher put all the strange shaped attempts into the oven and a short while later everyone was grinning eagerly at the glass oven door as the hot trays were removed. The babies were ushered back incase anyone got a singed whisker or ear, and you would be surprised how often it happened, even with everyone standing right back. There were always a couple of youngsters going home with shorter curly mis-shapen whiskers and a few tears after a baking lesson. Still, the reward of eating your own baking was a lure for every single baby, every single time, and it was the busiest and most exciting class held.

Hermes is looking forward to sitting cosily on your armchair with a view to the kitchen. And a view to the garden, as he will be meeting mama every day to show her what he’s been baking, so leave the French doors open a little thanks. As soon as he sees you pottering around the kitchen he will be in as fast as a shot to give you a hand. You do bake often don’t you? Like every day? He is now quite an expert at baking and can turn out shortbread, biscuits – of all types, fancy pastries, especially those flaky ones with splodges of hot jam in the centre and he is rather dapper at fairy cakes. Only he doesn’t call them fairy cakes, they are called mushroom cakes. That’s what his teacher said. She said fairies don’t exist but mushrooms do and the cakes look just like the small woodland poisonus mushrooms that grow in the undergrowth by the ferns. Ofcourse everyone loves to eat the cake type of mushrooms, as long as they are not decorated with red icing and blue spots. And the biscuits all have interesting scratches and impressions on them. Would you like to help with the decorating perhaps? Hermes will show you how to make small scratches on the biscuits just like a hare’s paw. What do you mean you could borrow his tiny paw? No you can not! It’s attached to him and he will be busy making the next batch of poisonus mushrooms, em, I mean fairy cakes, er mushroom cakes!

Hermes has been made with great care and he has safety eyes. He has been machine and hand sewn by me and will have many ‘unique’ (imperfect, handmade) bits especially the extra stitching on his fore paw. However, he is not recommended for very young children and is not a toy.

He is made of a thrifted wool material that's a grey in colour, and has a polyfill stuffing, along with a full stomach of dandelion leaves (only joking!).

He stands approx 17cm high and 12cm wide (approx 7” x 5.5”).

Hermes is excited about his journey to his forever home!
He also wants you to know that baby hares are called leverets.
