ready ... GO !

Yesterday evening
my Easter Bunny looked finished
but was not !
When making a wet felted animal like this
you build up the whole figure with
soft gentle felting
Later on
the rubbing gets a lot harsher ...
and a very good soak afterwards !
(and then ... still a lot of harsh rolling in a towel)
But now,
after all weathered hardships,
mister Bunny is quite ready
for his important task tomorrow :
hiding yummy chocolate eggs
for the grandchildren !
(he did a bit of a try-out today)
He did it quite well
so he enjoyed the sun afterwards
with his basket emptied.
 I couldn't help myself : simply HAD to make this picture
of the lovely sock yarn daughter is knitting with
and the gorgeous Bluebells !

  9. Oh I love your Easter bunny, and the splashes of colours add a real unique quirkyness to him. I hadn't realised the process for making felted animals liek that before I thought they were all needle felted, now I really would love to have a try too. thank you for the inspiration.
