This cute crochet bunny pattern is inspired by vintage and heirloom toys made modern by using gorgeous shades of soft baby yarn. As with all toys if you’re making for kids under 3 years old you need to be really careful about anything like eyes not being very securely attached – you could embroider the eyes if instead of adding little plastic ones.

If you use a wool based yarn you can add a lovely fluffy texture to the tummy of your bunny by brushing with a wire brush (very gently!) after you have sewn it all together. You want your bunnies to be super snuggly.  This would look so lovely on a shelf in the nursery – or could be repurposed for a little Easter gift.  But bunnies aren’t just for Easter.

The pattern is designed by Irene Strange find more of her patterns over on her gorgeous website (it’s a real treat for all crochet lovers!)
