There is something so satisfying about crafting with natural, raw materials. I am finding this to be true in my pottery classes and again with roving wool as I am reigniting my love for needle felting. As we begin to stock our shop with all of the materials we love for this fiber craft, you will notice our collection of needle-felted projects update and grow — starting with this little felted bunny.
Along with the bunny we have also included the pattern to make some felted carrots and radishes. Below you will find the supplies we used along with the template to help you understand the size of these needle-felted projects.
An Ear-resistible Bunny!
To make this felted bunny you will need your choice of roving wool colors for the bunny, pale pink felt, two black needle felting eyes, and a tiny bit of embroidery floss for the nose and mouth. The template will give you a guide for each of the parts of this bunny and the exact template for the felt pieces. Then follow the step-by-step tutorial below to carefully sculpt your cute critter.
Once you’re done crafting your felted bunny, you can give it some cute accessories — like some felted veggies in a mini woven bowl! If you’re making this bunny as an Easter gift for kids, you could put it in this felt carrot basket along with these carrot and strawberry Easter eggs.

Hi there all, have sure missed being online, being able to see what you are all doing. Decided to put old windows 7 away, have 8.1 transferred over to windows 10. Took me little bit getting used to it but am learning. Was told how much easier it was but this digitally challenged old lady needed bit of time.
I am so in love with this bunny, it’s too adorable, so sweet. You just keep showing us how exceptionally talented you are. Wondering if will be able to catch up after month, sure hope so. Have to ck. back to see what all was missed.
Will have to sell couple of printers so can get one compatible to windows 10. Hate being without printer.
While I was off I organized all my Lia Griffith projects had printed out over last year or so, there were so many in different categories, took 3 plastic organizer boxes to put it all in., will need more as we go along since you keep me so busy.
Have fantastic weekend. Am getting your posts now as I used to, so glad.
Jane, I am so glad that you liked this bunny and that you were able to organize your projects! I hope you have enjoyed the projects and that your shoulder is feeling better these days 🙂
