Do you remember???????

Sometime ago I wrote about buying wool sweaters at Goodwill and felting them for stuffed animals! I have had several brown sweaters that were not as appealing as the brighter colors and kind of got left on the shelf! While looking for something to do, I came across them and thought what cute rabbits they would make for Easter......so...............here is the result. The pattern only has two pieces and is quite easy....especially with the woolen sweater goods! You don't have to clip and trim every seam. The knit really turns beautifully without clipping:) If you are interested, I will post the pattern name and number.............. Posted by Picasa

very cool-by the way- the expert inspector cam yesterday and bounced around on the floor a bit and said that it would be ok to install the tile- nothing that a hand ful of nails couldn't fix.

LoVe LoVe this! Have a bunny collection but not one like this ~one a kind!!~
Pattern name and number is..?
(to felt sweaters is that the same as shrinking the wool on purpose?)

I love this idea. I used to make bunnies like this from old quilts, but the felted wool idea is so fresh. The little crepe paper basket is the perfect finishing touch for him.
