Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories! Not necessarily for the story itself – I just like the characters. I’ve been wanting to make a set of characters, so I decided to do Alice, the White Rabbit, and the Cheshire cat. This set was inspired by a needle felting kit that I saw in a Japanese craft store by the brand Mille.
I often see needle felting kits that consist of wool and some instructions. For me, these kits are a waste of money because most of time time I have all the colors on hand. Furthermore, I don’t like to follow the directions in Japanese needle felting kits because I’m too lazy to read the directions. It takes major effort for me to read Japanese and figure out all that kanji! Japanese is really difficult for me to learn for some reason. Why are there so many different alphabets? There 3 to be exact, and one consists of about 1000+ jouyou kanji characters :(. And strangely, enough, I’m one of those people who tends to read directions for everything – how to assemble the baby’s crib, how to operate the vacuum cleaner, how to use the curling iron even though I already know how to use it, etc. In the case of Japanese needle felting kits, however, I would rather create my own design instead of spending time translating the directions!
So, I present to you my White Rabbit Needle Felt Tutorial! This is probably the easiest character in my Alice in Wonderland Needle Felt Set. The tricky part with this piece is to make the pink base of the rabbit flat so that it won’t tip over too easily. The ears make the rabbit somewhat tippy, so the base has to be flat.
