Bunny Bunting


Hello...... Just lately we've found ourselves over run with bunnies here at the summerhouse.........


First there was some cotton in cute Easter colours and a pattern from Mollie Makes ( sorry a Subscriber only one)


Then a yellow bunny appeared,  now this bunny made on a 5mm hook turned out to be a bit flopsy and a little too bunny holie for my liking.


So after dropping down to a 4mm hook, I was much happier with how my bunny looked


 and in the shake of a lambs    bunnies tail, bunny productions began.


As for those cute little Cotton tails I used some white pom poms


and before long they were breeding like, well rabbits !!!

Three pink bunnies.


Were joined by four more bunnies, now it turns out as in life no two bunnies are the same, and all cotton yarns are not created equal,  I used a few different brands of cotton from my stash,  the pink bunnies turned out a little larger and well the little green bunny was on the teeny side of tiny so much so I added a extra round to his body, to make him a little bigger, and in the process made him look a bit like a Space Hopper !!!


So now we have five little bunnies sitting in a row


Then six


Until finally there were seven little bunnies all present and correct and all that was left to do was to thread them onto some yarn


Ta-Dah

All ready to join in with our other Easter Decorations

Happy Hoppy Easter

  6. Those are some very cute bunnies. I will say the fat little green one is my favorite. He ate a few too many carrots!

  7. The green one could me one of my bunnies - colin. He's got a really big bum so you don't see his head from behind, just his bum and ears!
