In the Designer's Words: "It so easy to make a gorgeous and fun bunny pillow from an old sweater. Old woolen sweaters can be felted and then sewn into a characterful pillow. Not only does this bunny pillow look fantastic it is lovely and soft to cuddle up to. You can personalise these bunnies by using a favourite old sweater and adding embellishments of your choice.  You can also create different facial expressions.  Visit the blog post for more details."

I love this little sweater bunny. It would be so cute on a little girl's bed all year around.
