Wee Bunny & Wee Eggs

Here are the bunny and eggs I finished yesterday. I wish I had a paler blue felt for the bunny. The colors of the eggs are off in this picture-- they're not as bright as in the photo. I had planned to embroider the eggs but that was tough to do after I cut them out. I should have stitched them first. I couldn't get the bottom seam on the bunny to look right, which is why the eggs are covering him up. I don't have enough felt for the handle of the basket I started last night so Mr. Bunny and his eggs will just sit on my dusty shelf for now.



I didn't add the pom-pom tail because I like having it sit on my night table. It makes me happy to see it and I could really use that right now. (Not having enough felt just led to a crying jag, which just made me realize (once again) how long I have been stuck in this house and how much longer I will be here, blah blah blah).

It looks nothing like the original but the bunny pattern is from Wee Wonderfuls and the egg patterns are from Wee Folk Art. And, I learned how to make the pom-pom from Bella Dia's tutorial. It took me three tries to get it right so keep at it if you give it a shot.

Wanna see my pom-pom again? I know you do.

Swooning over the bunny and eggs! And the pompom too! So, felt...do you use fancy wool felt or is the standard Walmart variety of felt what you use for your crafty projects?

This bunny is totally cute!! Love the links you put up yesterday, WOW some of them are really darling.

Didn't yo mama tell you not to complain because somebody is always worse off than you?????? I've been practically home bound for 4 years with my back injury. I've had to get a walker, use a cane and give up the airplane. There, does that make you feel better? Seriously, I do know how depressing being stuck in the house can be. But at least you are putting your time to good use. Keep it up, you'll accidentally cheer yourself up with one of these cuties. (LOL).

That is a wonderful pom-pom. It looks way better than mine. Mine usually look stringy. Maybe I need to check out Bella Dia's tutorial. Your bunny is adorable too. I wish you could get out and enjoy the weekend. Have a good one! Twyla

Squee! Love them!

I hear ya on how depressing it is to be stuck at home. I can barely walk so my excitement lies in deciding which chair to sit in next.

I love your flickr slideshow. I could just look at it all day.
