The bunnies are finished!

I told you it was down to the wire- but phew, they are finally done. And I have to say I'm a little in love with needle felting them. I wish it wasn't so close to Easter and I had time to make a few more just so I could needle felt little details and patterns all over them.Maybe I should just continue making them and get a head start on next year's rabbits!
Although if I'm being honest once Easter has passed it's likely this rabbit fever will pass too and they'd languish in the half done projects pile until a few days before next Easter when the holiday panic would spur me into action.

Here's how I finished them up from the last time I posted an update:

Once I was done knitting I pieced everything together. (They look a bit like puppets on my hand like that.)

After a swim in the washing machine this is what they looked like.

And once they were dry I added all the felted details.

The grey one got the face and a letter C on his tummy. I also gave him a pom pom tail.

The green one got a cute little face, dots all over, she also got a big red heart on her chest and a needle felted tail instead of a pom pom (which I think I like a little better than the pom pom-but that could just be because I loath making pom poms).

I have one more quick Easter project. I was hoping to post it yesterday but wasn't feeling that great so I'll post later today.

Here's a sneak peak.... but I don't think you'll be able to guess.


  1. Oh, they are so cute! I have a bunny pattern that I have not knit, of course. It's not felted, tho. These are just so adorable. And love the paint chip eggs - so clever! Have a great Easter!

  2. Thanks Jane, I really love making these little rabbits! I've wanted to try just a knitted toy pattern (not felted). I think I have one for a dinosaur that I'd like to knit for my nephew.

    Have a Happy Easter too!

  3. How fun to see the steps and then the finished bunny! You are definitely having way too much fun needle felting. Addictive isn't it?

    Love your beautiful bunnies!

    Happy Easter!
