Little Bunnies♥




These bunnies are tiny at about 5.5 inches high but are ever so sweet.


Like my other bunnies these are made with merino wool felt and stuffed with   Bio Wool .


 I love the tiny bows and the heart shaped tummies!

These bunnies are now available for adoption at my etsy shop:)

This super cute little bunny was designed by Gingermelon. You can find the pattern in her shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/Gingermelon?ref=seller_info
Easter is coming!


It's about 7 weeks till Easter and time to start thinking about bunnies!
This years Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are looking quite springish in daffodil yellow and lime green.
  

These darling bunnies are hand stitched and embroidered by me. I use a merino blend wool  and stuff them with Bio Wool  (which means it hasn't been treated with yucky chemicals). The bunnies are about 7.5 inches to the tops of there ears and Mrs. Bunny has her cheeks lightly blushed with bees wax.

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny are now available for adoption at my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/TookensTale
 They were made using another adorable pattern by Gingermelon. It's the Pocket Bunny pattern and you can find it at her etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/listing/123577972/pocket-bunny-pdf-pattern?
Flora and Laura the Explorers


Laura and Flora are ready to go adventuring!

I really love this pattern! Designed by Gingermelon you can find it in her shop http://www.etsy.com/listing/150210041/flora-the-explorer-pdf-pattern?ref=shop_home_active 

 I have been waiting to use it because I wanted to try it in both a woven and a non woven felt.
Up until now I have only been using the non-woven felt for my plush dolls and I wanted to see the difference, besides price. ( The woven is a bit more).
Laura on the left is made with a hand dyed woven felted wool and Flora on the right is made using the non-woven merino wool blend felt.


The non- woven felt is a little stiffer and has more of the look of what I think of when I think "felt doll".


The woven felt conforms nicely to curves and is a little fuzzier. It makes me think "plush" first, "felt" second.


Non-Woven on top------Woven on bottom


I was kind of hoping by making the same pattern with both felts I would really prefer one over the other.
But they really are different enough that I like them both!
Does this mean I will have to make all the patterns out of both felts?
Which do you prefer?

Both Laura and Flora will be available for adoption at my Etsy shop later today.
