Now that Spring is here, I am was inspired to make a basket of Easter Peeps in various pastels.  This is based off a pattern I have for a chick that is also a pin cushion.  I scaled down the pattern about 65% so they looked more like peeps.  These are made from hand-dyed wool and stuffed with fiberfill and sand/sawdust combination to give them some weight.  When my son saw these, he was quite taken by them, but then he wanted me to make him a blue one!  I am searching for the perfect shade of blue wool.  I hope you like them!

They are a traditional Easter candy in the US made out of Marshmallow.  You can find out more here:  http://www.marshmallowpeeps.com/.

Peeps are an Easter staple, no basket is complete without them!

Thanks, I think these are some of the prettiest spring wool colors I've seen too.  I got them at a local store where she dyes her own wool:  http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Lone.Star.Mercantile.919-989-8584

I think she does online orders, definitely worth giving her a call!
