Fuzzy Fiber Bunnies

This bunny seems very proud of her eggs!

KnottyKnitter40 on Ravelry made Babette the Easter Bunny using needle felting. That’s a technique I’ve never dared to try myself, so I’m impressed. (And I love those little eggs.)

And this bunny is way more fun than a cup of Earl Grey!

Bookette crocheted him from Roman Sock’s pattern for Tea Cup Bunnies.

Any more crafty bunnies out there made from different materials/techniques? Send them to me at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com!

Moon Buns

It just wouldn’t be right to have Bunny Week without a Moon Bun!

Moons Creations was nice enough to send over a photo of this one dressed up as a lamb. I think we’ll have to call in a mathematician to determine the degree of cuteness going on here. Check out the Moons Creations Etsy shop to see more and get your own!

I also got a sneak peek at one of the Moon Bun muses, Duncan! He likes to watch war movies.

Crocheted Toy in Fuse Ad

I noticed this ad for Fuse (a music-oriented cable channel I’ve never seen) on a big screen when I was walking by Times Square the other night. There aren’t too many ads that feature little crocheted toys and Old 97’s songs, so I thought it was worth sharing. Anyone know who made the toys?

Frankie the Silent Film Star

My second attempt at amigurumi resulted in an almost convincing toy!

This is Frankie the Silent Film Star. You might remember him from such slapstick classics as Crackerjack Capers and Gold Diggers of Aught Six. Unfortunately the talented tap-dancing Frankie was phased out of Hollywood once the talkies took over—there were only so many situations writers could come up with to explain away his lack of a mouth.

I guess Frankie doesn’t look drastically different from my pathetic Little Give Up of last fall, but armed with acrylic yarn and a metal crochet hook (thanks, Rebecca!), it wasn’t half the struggle this time. I primarily used this kind of blurry YouTube video to refresh my technique and then experimented with simple increases and decreases. And a star was born!
