Another Young Rabbit
I needle-felted another young rabbit - just for fun, and for my Etsy shop! It's always fun making these little creatures, and especially fun dressing them. I didn't make underwear for Claire - just the little romper. Maybe wild rabbits don't wear underwear. But the do have dolls!
One of the most useful techniques I've developed is one I use for wings and large ears. I cut the basic shape from wool felt, two for each ear, sew them together around the edges except for the bottom, slip loops of wire into them, then wrap the wire around the head part way through the felting process. The key is to use wool felt so that the wool fibers will stick without having to build up a thick layer.
