These are knitted up and hand felted.  I can't believe the magic of felting!  It was my first time..

Here is a before and after felting pic, amazing!

Little pom poms for the tails Smiley

This pattern is called hopsalots by TinyOwlKnits and it's on Ravelry.

I'm pretty happy with how they came out and they're definitely warm and snuggly!  But too cute to ruin by scuffing around in all day!

So cute! Remind me of the bunny outfit from A Christmas Story, and it had the little bunny feet, too. Smiley

They turned out so cute!  I have a question though, do they continue to shrink if you machine wash and machine dry them?  Or is it felt once and then they wont shrink any more?  The whole felting process just confuses me. Huh

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I think you can only felt to a certain degree and then they really can't shrink any more.
I felted these for ages to get them small enough but there is a point where they don't go any smaller Smiley  Hope this helps and if there's a felting expert out there, chime in!  I'm a newbie!
