Needle Felted for Easter/Spring

I love creating animals. Here are some that are associated with Easter and Spring.
To create my animals, I study photos of the creature from different angles. I also like to take the opportunity to study the animals live, when I can. This bunny is luxurious, with a coat of cashmere, yak and alpaca. 

Alpaca fiber creates a very fluffy chicken. I dyed white alpaca with turmeric. 

This lop-eared bunny is made with real Angora bunny fur mixed with alpaca. 

I like to make my creatures realistic, with a touch of anthropomorphism.
