Wet Bunnies

My bunnies are felted, and it only took 30 minutes in the washing machine. Photos are posted at my blog (I'm still having trouble with Blogger and photos).

This Fiber Trends pattern couldn't be easier. The only trouble I had was that I used running stitch instead of whipstitch to baste the opening closed with cotton yarn, and had quite a time removing the stitches after felting.

Now I need to decide: button eyes, or embroidered? Felt backing or not? I will go ahead and try the suggested nose. And as far as further embellishment goes, something tells me they might be better received if they bear a resemblence to Rambo instead of Peter Cottontail.
