Each year, I my goal is to make one thing related to birthday celebrations separate from presents.

Felt rabbit wallet

August 2nd, 2010 · No Comments · crafty

Something I worked on recently. The felt wallet was inspired by a post on Childhood Magic [note: sadly, since writing this post, that blog has shut down]. V loves the color red and animals such as rabbits. The bunny shape was copied from Purl Bee’s Bunny Finger Puppet tutorial.
