Salt Dough

For some reason I have a hankering to play with salt dough today, but I can't remember which recipe I used to get the whiter finish.  The love tokens and the charms were both made over a year ago using different recipes.  
The charms came out a better shade of white.  They are thinner than the tokens, and they were allowed to air dry for many days.  The love tokens were place in a low heat oven.  Maybe that was the difference.
I want to make pretty salt dough bowls.  
I want to get good spring pastel colors when I make them.  Does anyone have any tips for whiter dough?  Thanks in advance :)

Oh no! They're Multiplying...

Bunny #1 and #2
The bigger bow works better.  Flowered would look great too.  I have a couple more started with eyelashes.  These make be a bit addictive! 

Felt Bunny and Such

It is a rainy Good Friday.  So once again I had to keep myself busy with easy indoor activities.  I decided to get into the Easter spirit by making this cute little bunny.  It is a pinspiration.  There are loads of adorable bunnies there.  
I just drew a rudimentary pattern, found a 25 cent of felt and some embroidery thread and got started. 
I must say that it turned out much better than my three little piggies!
Here is my basic bunny pattern.
I think I'll make a few more :)
