Felting for the bunny

I started doing felt craft since secondary time. That time I used to sew teddies and whatsnot for my close friends. Believe it or not, I started doing it again after 10 freaking years..

Bought felt cloths in variety of colours when I was back in KL few months back. And coincidently the sewing supply shop carries some Japan imported guide books as well.

Of course I couldn't read a singe word from that book but to depend on the illustration alone.

Been working on a book for bunny since months ago but been procrastinating too much...

When I first started out with this project, I was thinking if I could maybe make a few and sell them online. And I could make it as a side business and occupy my free time. Perhaps I think too much, completing this book alone is already an achievement.


And finally after months of cutting and stitching...

TADA~!!!!
This is the cover. Initially I was thinking of putting bunny's name but unfortunately we haven't decided on a name for him...

I'm quite satisfied with the final result. What say you? ;)

I couldn't find any white/ black/ red visual stimulation book for bunny so I've decided to take this matter into my own hand..
Completed this within 2 days thank God..

I still have lots of leftover felt cloths and indecisive what to do with it.. Maybe decoration on his cot bed? ;)

FELT!!! Where do you buy them and how much? I've tried looking for them to make for my baby...

By the way, the book is beautiful. I wanted to make something like that for my daughter. But kinda stop short when I couldn't find any felt cloth (probably I've been looking at the wrong places all the time)
