Trixie the Bunny Girl

IMG_1834

Trixie is all dressed up and she’s hopping your way to help you find some eggs. This finished doll stands approximately 14 inches tall, perfect size for cuddling. She’s made with Bernat Pipsqueak yarn, but you could make her with all worsted weight yarn if you prefer.

If you want a pattern that you can save on your computer and easily print, this pattern is available in my Ravelry shop for only $2.00. I love printing patterns and saving them in a binder to keep track of the ones I’ve done and the ones I still plan to do.

Pull hat onto head and get it where you want it. Figure out the placement of her eyes, but don’t put the backs on yet. Sew hat onto head, then attach hair underneath hat so that it falls over the loops.

Once you have the hat and hair on, make sure the eye placement is where you want it, and attach the backs. You can sew on a nose and/or mouth if you want to, but I always choose to leave those off because it makes her expression more neutral. You can also use a bit of blush on her cheeks to give her face some color.
