wow, those earrings are very impressive.

i'm amazed at how creative everyone is, with a lot of these packages it's hard to tell that the materials came from dollar stores!

Those are beautiful earrings!

Thanks for all the compliments on the sock llama--it was my first sock animal ever, and I completely winged it by glancing over the monkey and elephant tutorials posted in the toy section.

I uploaded a pic of the bunnies before I left for school this morning, so I'll pop that in here.  Excuse the overabundance of green--I needed a backdrop that wouldn't reflect, and I was taking these at the same time that I was taking the mock vacation shots of them in front of stone monument postcards for the paper-crafting bunny's scrapbook, so the book I used to raise them up past the white edge of the postcard and the paper grass that I put under them are serving as backdrops.  

They all have crafty usernames, some slightly punny, and I don't know if I can recall them off the top of my head.  I think the pink punk one, with her duct-tape wallet and pierced eyebrow, was PunxieBunny, the green stitching bunny with the knitting was bunneedle (knitting on toothpicks?  I don't recommend it  Cool ), the blue papercrafting bunny with the scrapbook is OrigamiRabbit, and the orange jewelry/beading bunny is beadyeyebunny, or something like that.  I have the original scrap of paper that I sketched their characters out on at home, so I could look it up later.

They're really easy to make, and if you're using the baby washcloths they wind up small enough to stick in plastic eggs, so non-crafting versions might make good Easter basket stuffers--they come in pastel, too.  If you want a little puffy part on the butt to stick your pom on, fold diagonally, then roll the washcloth up into a thin strip--there will be a thin little "tail" that hangs over the edge in the center, which should go the outside when you fold it.  If you want a flatter bunny butt, lay the washcloth out and, with each hand at opposite corners, fold those corners in toward the center until they meet in the middle and then fold those two rolls together into one strip (like folding a one-bread-slice sandwich).  For either version, fold your strip/roll in half, then bend the pointy ends backwards and secure with a rubberband.  Add whatever embelishments you want--eyeballs, noses, tails, ribbons, etc.
