Cute bunnies made of wool balls are a quick miracle to create in just an hour. 

 

 

In this workshop, we will create cute little bunnies from ordinary wool balls using the wet felting technique. You can easily create all kinds of bunnies from simple shapes and turn them into festive souvenirs, pocket toys or pretty accessories. 

 

You can work with any wool, although fine fibres are preferred for delicate accessories. The project is not complicated and countless characters can be made from it. Suitable for beginners. I think children might enjoy such a project too.

 

In the workshop, I will show from beginning to end how to felt a bunny in different variations. We will work together in a live livestream. The livestream time is 1,5 hours.



What do we need? 

 

  1. 1. Mat for wet felting. I use ribbed kitchen cupboard mat from IKEA shop. It sold in rolls in kitchen section of IKEA. You can find something similar. 
  2. 2. Soap.
  3. 3. Water container.
  4. 4. Scissors with sharp tips.
  5. 5. Needle felting tools: mat (dishwashing sponge is fine) and felting needle size 38, gauge star. 
  6. 6. Wool: I make my bunnies from superfine Australian merino 18-20 microns in ribbon. You can use absolutely any wool (fine, coarse, in ribbon or carded), but coarser wool will give a more "hairy" surface, which will need to be cleaned. It takes 1-3 g of wool per bunny, depending on size and species. Bunnies sizes: colored is 5.5 cm tall, sitting rabbits are 4,5 cm tall and 3 cm wide.

You can make a fluffy body by adding some alpaca fleece or angora rabbit down, for example. You will need a small cat brush to brush up the fluffy surface of the finished bunny.

  1. 7. Plastic eyes for the bunny - I have 2 mm. You can easily replace them with black beads. To fit the eyes you will need an awl and glue, ideally quick gel glue, and a needle and sewing thread for the beads. The eyes can also be fully embroidered.
  2. 8. Sewing needle and sewing thread or mouline floss (I have black for the light bunnies, white for the black ones) to embroider the mouth and nose.
  3. 9. Sewing thread to match the color of the bunny to join the pieces.
  4. 10. If the bunnies are to become brooches, you will need a pin and for the earrings, additional hardware and a chain. 
  5. 11. A measurement tape. 
  6. 12. A hand towel.
