Like we said before, when the queen of cute needle felt releases something they don’t usually last long till someone snaps them up. Kit Lane needle felt creations are up on the Kit Lane store and we doubt it will these three munchkins will be around long. Giving you the quick heads up, because we’re nice like that 🙂 or it could be the fact that we look forward to Kit Lane’s wonderful stories that go along with her needle felt characters.
JERMAINE THE JACABUNNY
Jacabobs and Bunnies have long been neighbours, occasionally having little Jacabunnies of their very own. The winters are quite long here, the dens are tiny and television reception is poor. It can’t be helped.

Jermaine the Jacabunny likes to lounge in the soft glow of a computer monitor, has cravings for berries and cream, and adores squidgee squeezles.
Jermaine stands 2.95 inches tall including ears. He has a cute little mini-button nose and wears a hot yellow green heart on his chest as it’s never been broken. A lovely sheep down the road named Bernice donated the natural ecru wool for his face. His body however is made of variegated cobalt blue wool from Clarice the sheep, a friend of Bernice and the girls from the other side of the wood. Jermaine is made by the needle felting method which means poking and poking a tuft of wool with a very sharp specialized barbed needle while braced and girded with nerves of steel until his form appears. This has made him a courageous or daft. There’s fine line there.
He enjoys the woodchuck bowling and plays well with other “Bobs”, Bunnies and Nurblettes but loathes the barn kitties with a passion. A passion!!
DERWIN THE URSABOB
This cheerful Ursabob enjoys an early stroll in the woods at the end of the garden on dewy summer mornings, the warm glow of a computer monitor, a breakfast of crumpets and jam, and loves his squidgee squeezles.
Derwin stands 3 inches tall. He has a cute little mini-button nose and a body covered in pink polka dots. A lovely sheep down the road named Bernice donated the natural sheep colored wool for his body. His face however is made of baby carnation pink wool from Clara the sheep who bunks with Bernice. Derwin is made by the needle felting method which means poking and poking a lump of wool with a very sharp barbed needle while girded with nerves of steel until his form appears. This has made him a bit tentative with pointy objects but generally still in good mental health.
He enjoys a good Polka in Saturday nights, the squirrel chess club and plays well with other Jacabobs and Burbles :o)
FREDO THE JACABOB
Jacabobs and Bunnies have long been living side by side in the wood past the end of my garden, occasionally having little Jacabunnies of their very own. Life in the tundric wastelands, better known as West Central Minnesota, is slow at times. Television reception is poor so the Bunnies and Bobs make up their own fun. It can’t be helped.
Fredo the Jacabunny loves lounging in the soft glow of a computer monitor after a long day munching and cavorting with the local wildlife down the lane.
Fredo stands 2.85 inches tall including ears. He has a cute little mini-button nose and wear plum purpley stripes around his chubby middle. A lovely sheep down the road named Clarice donated the soft barely tinted baby peach wool for his face. His body however is made of a wee bit riper peach wool from Evelynn the sheep, a friend of Clarice and the girls from the other side of the wood. Fedo is made by the needle felting method which means poking and poking a lump of wool with a very sharp barbed needle a bajillion times while wearing a full gauntlet until his form appears. This has made him a bit of a nervous chap around pointy objects.
He enjoys philosophical conversations with the woodchuck study group, plays well with other “Bobs”, Bunnies but loathes the barn kitties with a passion. With. A. Passion.

“Wool – sheep give it up every year.”
“Buttons – salvaged from a dress blouse which had gaps in the front anyway as I’ve spent a lot of time at Etsy which has contributed greatly to my girt”
