The New Hobby

I don't know why it took me so long to try out needle felting.  I've known about it for years.  My favorite craft store in Denver has their own super cute kits.  I've seen really cool felted items made by fellow crafters, I guess I just thought it was too freeform for me.  Well, that has all changed.  Every year I make an easter bunny for my kids (2011, 2010), and this year I had many different thoughts on what to make.  I was browsing Etsy for inspiration when I kept coming across these really cute needle felted bunnies.  My main inspiration was from the amazingly talented fairyfolk shop.  I just couldn't get her cute bunnies out of my mind.  Then I realized I already owned everything I needed to try!  I bought a gnome felting kit at Rhinebeck this past fall, and I accidentally ordered the fiber Phat fiber box a few years ago, oops!  Well here's my version, I still want one of fairyfolk's bunnies in an egg though!

Hope the kids like it.  It's gonna be tough not to give it to them beforehand!
