|Needle felted bunny with hand made dress (crocheted bodice, ribbon and crinoline skirt)|
Yesterday I decided to do the pattern again, except
this time, I'd do the entire pattern, not just the
first bit, and I ended up with this cute outfit.

Both outfits are cute but I think I like the little boy outfit the best, even though I generally gravitate more toward frilly things. My friend Christine suggested that I should make another bunny so I can have both, so I think I'll take her up on it. First I have to give my poor hands a rest. Between modelling, needle sculpting, crochet, and typing, they get quite sore, especially when I'm retaining water.

The pattern for the dress bodice and boy outfit can be found at epatterns.com. It's in the book,
Itsy Bitsy Babies and their Bassinet Purses
She also told me about a new wool shop in town, that not only sells wool and felting supplies, it also doubles as a coffee shop! Woohoo! I can't wait to see it!
I've been thinking of dying some of my core batt using kool-aide and the microwave. I'd have to do it in the basement though, which means bringing my microwave in from storage (in the garage), because my Mom would have fits if I stained her pretty kitchen counters. Maybe I should just buy some orange and flesh batting (the two colors I really want.)
