Meet Peanut Bunner & Jilly Sannich the bunny and mouse class mascots in the 2nd and 3rd photos. They are the mouse and bunny you would create in this class. I am posting other photos of dressed mice and bunnies on this listing just to show you what is possible after you learn how to make your own Peanut Bunner and Jilly Sannich! I have sold over 700 of my little naked and clothed critters and am hooked on felting! This is now my full time business in my home studio. What makes this class so much fun is that it only takes a day or two to complete a tiny mouse or bunny. I like short fun projects that make me smile in a matter of a couple days. I usually complete my critter in 1 day, however beginners may need two days. This project is fun, easy and very addictive. Ya just can't make one! The class is for beginners as well as the advanced needle felter.
This is a class I am selling. I am not selling the actual mouse, bunny, squirrel,house or owls. The pattern for this class is to create a dressed mouse and bunny only as shown in the 2nd and 3rd photo.
Kits for this class are available also and there are NO instructions in the kits as they are a companion to this PDF Dressed Mouse and Bunny Class. Check the left section column in my Etsy store and you will see a kits section. If you do not see the dressed kit it may mean I sold out, however I would have more kits available in a day or two. I have other kits for my different classes so please read carefully to be sure you purchase the $25.00 dressed mouse and bunny kit.

Once you purchase the PDF files of this class it is yours and you may create your mouse and bunny whenever you would like. I work in my studio 6 days a week and am happy to help any student with their needle felted mouse or bunny.
I am very excited to share my knowledge on needle felting through my PDF "Needle Felted Dressed Mouse and Bunny Class" to help you create your very own 3-1/2" needle felted mouse and bunny. Yes, this class teaches you how to make BOTH the dressed mouse and dressed bunny along with tips on how to create a closed eye critter too! This listing is for my "Needle Felted Dressed Mouse and Bunny Class" © 2011 sent to your email address in PDF files and not for the actual wool bunny or mouse that are shown in the photos, nor the owl or house or any other props. Again, the pattern for the clothing is in a PDF attachment. The clothing pattern included is just like the clothing "Peanut" and "Jilly" are wearing. If you would like a companion kit with wool supplies it is in another listing sold separately in my Etsy store. Please email me through my Etsy store if you have questions.

"Needle Felted Dressed Mouse and Bunny Class"
This will be a five-lesson class as shown below:
Lesson #1- Wrapping and needle felting the body
Lesson #2- Making the tail for the mouse and creating the head
Lesson #3- Creating the clothing and faces for the mouse and bunny
Lesson #4- Finishing the face, creating the ears and eyelids plus sewing up the inseam to the romper
Lesson #5- Creating closed eyes, adding the bunny tail and elf hat, plus adding a brown overlay for the mouse’s head
A supply list will be included in your first lesson.
The photos of the dressed mouse and bunny in this listing are examples of what you would be learning to create. The mouse and bunny you will be creating have black bead eyes, a pink nose and mouth and pinkish flesh ears. The mouse and bunny are needle felted from wool and have wire armatures inside the arms and legs for posing, plus a string jointed head for movement. Everyone needle felts a little differently and so each creation by each student will vary. I have included many photos of the class mouse and bunny with step-by-step instructions in the five class lessons. This class was created for beginning needle felters, however it is challenging enough for the more advanced needle felter. The class teaches you how to create a mouse and bunny with hand stitched clothing. There are a few simple embroidery stitches you may use to embellish the outfits and you may look up the basic stitches online. I do not teach the actual embroidery stitches, however I explain which stitches I have on the outfits and there are many ways to embellish their outfits.
For those who have not needle felted this is a process of poking fluffy wool with a barbed needle hundreds of times to sculpt a shape. Needle felting is basically sculpting and painting with wool! The wool mouse and bunny you will be creating is not intended for children or pets.
