Needle Felted Bunny

acrylic lace, beads, nylon net, wool, wool thread
11 cm

This is my first needle felted creation. For a long time I wanted to find a good book on needle felting or to ask somebody who is good in this kind of craft to teach me, but I postponed again and again.

During our trip to Slovenia (about 3 months ago) I have bought a needle and some wool among other goods in the Ljubljana hobby shop. I had a general idea of how to do needle felting after watching a short and simple video, and so I decided to try myself. My first Bunny is not complicated, but still cute, and I'm quite satisfied with the result.

He was ready right before catholic Easter, so he is a real Easter Bunny. That's why he is reading a book "All about eggs" (the full research of the market of coloured eggs). I made a hammock for him in order he can fully enjoy reading his book and the fresh air.

Wrapper

Here you can see a little whimsical vintage-style bag for  this Bunny. It looks a bit like a page of an old story book (if you remember all the tales from such kind of books at the beginning started with a special decorated capital letter). The bag has a knitted lace in order to close it. Also there are two pockets. The little one is for a little book of Bunny and the bigger one is meant  for keeping a label. Inside the bag there is a little drawing showing Bunny's life in the envelope in order to pack it properly. So, the Bunny is fully equipped for the trip to his owner))).
