Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies

IMG_6644a

Easter has been on my mind, so I made myself a harem of bunnies. They’re cute and cuddly and they work up pretty quickly. This pattern could also be used to make other animals simply by changing the ears and nose on it. For example, some cute, round ears and a safety nose would turn these into a cute teddy bear. I thought the bunnies were cute, and I had fun thinking of different colors to make them in.

Stuff everything except the ears and tail. Using your yarn needle, sew arms, legs and tail onto body. Sew ears onto head, then put eyes on. Using embroidery thread and needle, sew on nose. Sew head to body.

When sewing parts on, be sure it lines up right before attaching. And remember, if you sew something on crooked, it’s easy enough to just pull it back apart and re-do it.
