Bunny Finger Puppets


After seeing this simple tutorial for these adorable little bunny finger puppets on the Purl Bee website, I had to give them a try. 

I used some thin wool felt that I made from blazers and coats, along with some pink felt that I found at a garage sale a few years ago.  I needle-felted a small ball of wool roving for the tail.  I cut the bunnies free-hand, but the template is provided in the tutorial (which, by the way, was really clear and detailed)



I think it took me about 20 minutes to sew one of these guys up, and they're so cute I think it was well-worth the effort.  The boys have already been playing with them so I know they're a hit with the 3 and 4 year old set. 


If you have some felt hanging around, you should give it at try.  I think they'd be adorable made of corduroy or something too, don't you?

Awesome idea! When I saw the photo in flickr, these looked bigger. I think they would be cute as little stuffies, too! Nice job, and I love the plaid guy!

Sooooo cute. We're headed to the beach next weekend - partly sunny and partly drizzly forecast - and I needed activities for a 2 and 3 year old during the drizzly indoor hours that we're not at the ocean. I'll make a bunch of these this week to take along, my son loves bunnies right now. Thanks, perfect timing!
