White Rabbit Fancy Dress in Minutes

Quick White Rabbit Fancy Dress

Me and Phil attended a friend’s birthday party this evening. The party was fancy dress and I decided to pull together a quick White Rabbit costume. I cut a pocket watch and some hearts out of felt and stuck them to a jacket using glue-dots. The ears were also cut out of felt & given a pink centre using a sharpie. I shaped the ears by folding a white pipe cleaner in half and sewing it to the back of the ears. These were then sewn on to a head band.

I made a large white pompom, which I pinned to the back of my jacket, and painted my face white – with a black nose & whiskers. Simple:)

Felt Sanrio Usahana bunny plush

Here’s another felt plush toy created using a pattern from a Japanese pattern book. This is the Sanrio character Usahana. I couldn’t decide what to do with her once I’d made her so I added some ribbon and made her into a Christmas tree decoration!
