Bunnies and Moki!

I finished a little piece today. I wanted to do something with felting, so I made the bunnies with wool roving.
I cut out the wool shapes and felted onto those first, then I clipped off the excess to get the pieces into shapes.
I like how some roving sticks out, it looks like bunny fur.

For the lettering, I used the wash n go. I learned one thing, do not use sharpies to write with, it bleeds when you rinse off the paper. I had to use soap and wash it to get the light letters back.

I am thinking of adding small embroidered flowers into the background, something that isn't too bold, just blends in with the background. The design is from Primitive Blessings.



And for the Moki fans! This is what I have to put up with, when I am working around the kitchen. Moki thinks it is fun to grab, bite and dig his claws in, he tends to get a bit rough. When I cook, he hops up and tries to help, and one day he even pulled a piece of squash out of the sink and ate it, he has a strange appetite.

And don't forget to sign up for the giveaway below. It ends friday at midnight. The winner gets a gift code to buy anything they like.

The bunny is adorable! The wool roving does give it a different effect. Do you have the special tool to bury it in the wool background?

I had to come and see your bunnies - love them. And I like the idea of the flowers.
Moki is just like Deuces. Does he drink out of the faucet. Deuces will drink out of a bowl but he much prefers the faucet.

Cute bunnie! Attempting to stay away from the wool...don't need another project. But LOVE seeing what everyone else does, even if it does make it harder to resist!

Yay Moki! He's such a handsome boy. With good taste. My cats love squash and sweet potatoes, bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, mashed carrots, cooked beets.... And I love your bunnies - so cute and fluffy!
