Peeps you can keep

Who better to great you on Try-it-out Tuesday than Peter Cottontail himself, the first of my branchings-out into new territory. He's a wool felt rabbit just about the size of a Marshmallow Peep but with (in my humble opinion) tons more character. I plan to make about 7 more of the little creatures in different colors to give to K for Easter Day, along with a little drawstring bag she can carry them to church in for some quiet play. It was fun to work with the wool felt and embroidery thread, and to fashion the charming little critter in a relatively short time.

This project came from Cynthia Treen's Last Minute Fabric Gifts.

If you're looking for some entertaining and informative reading, you could do worse than to go over to the Peep Research Page .

  1. Jennifer, you really, *really* meant to link to http://www.peepresearch.org/ and not .com.


  2. Um, er, *blushes* problem fixed. Sorry everyone.

  3. Hmmm... glad I didn't follow that link earlier in the day!

    Anyway - that bunny is super cute! Well done. Is he solid/stuffed, or more like a finger puppet?

  4. He's a stuffie. Could easily have left him as a finger puppet, though. Hmm...
