OK so I've done a number of posts about the felted rabbits as I went along knitting them
(For your reading convenience- Here they are in order of posting if you feel like seeing the project from the start)
And now yesterday, I finally felted them! It was soooo much fun. Although I admit to feeling the teeniest bit bad when I throw them in the washing machine (I feel like I'm dong something bad to these poor little guys).
I was concerned about this guy-
I had no idea how the yarn would felt. I'd never used a variegated yarn for felting before, but I think he turned out cute. Now I think- wouldn't a variegated gray or brown yarn be nice for a rabbit! (He still needs to be trimmed he has bits of yarn sticking out).
I was hesitant to try a white rabbit- because I've heard white can be hard to felt- but I'm so glad I did. He just seems like your classic Easter Bunny. And this white yarn wasn't that hard it just took an extra minute or two.
They certainly aren't finished yet, evident by the stuffing sticking out of this bunny.
They need little pom-pom tails (ugg how I dislike making pom-poms) and little eyes and little noses. I also need to close the seam.
They are still drying and are only temporarily stuffed to keep their shape, then I'll do the finishing details, stuff them for real, and close the seam. Phew Yesterday, Sunday seemed so far away and these bunnies so close to being done. Now after that list I think I better get moving- and find a way to make them dry faster!!!
P.S. I have just realized that I have referred to most of these bunnies as "He" not sure why, but some should be girl bunnies don't you think?
