Little bunny faces

Thought I'd share these little white bunny face brooches that I made last week for my two nephews to parcel up with their yummy Easter eggs. I'm really into making brooches at the mo and have lots of ideas floating around in my head.

I am so pleased with the pretty shade! I am planning to knit up Child's Lovely Lace Socks for my girls for Easter.
