Actually, white pompoms may also mean...


 BUNNY TAILS!
Maybe I'm onto something. Maybe I could write a book...101 uses for a pompom.
Maybe not.
 
This little chap is an upcycled woolly jumper, inspired by the bunnies in Sarah Moores Homemade Gifts Vintage Style book.
Oo! There's another one!
 I did a bit doodling in my sketch book and came up with a pattern I liked before having a rummage through my felted jumper box (yes I have a box of shrunken felted jumpers, purposefully shrunk I hasten to add.)
And before I knew it, I had a little bundle of bunnies. I think they look a bit 1940's-ish.
A couple of them have hopped into my Etsy shop.
Changing the subject completely.
I have a couple of random felt bags to show you that I made a couple of weeks ago. I was planning to give them their own blog post but my laptop has died on me, taking with it the photos I needed for said post.
(I'm using #2's laptop which operates on a totally different system to mine and it's driving me nuts!)
These two pics were still on my camera so I thought we'd give them a little nod and get them out of the way. Both are available through the Chapel Gallery who now are able to sell directly online to customers. They're still in the process of uploading items but they're getting there.
 
Aaaah now that's out of the way I feel much better.
We can now get ready for next time.
I have something I'm chuffed to bits with, to show you next time.
 
So till then
love Fi x
