** Update: I’ve added a new flickr gallery for finished wee bunnies if you’d like to add yours..
Time to get Easter (or whatever) crafting. The wee bunny pattern is now available in the new freebies section! (see sidebar) Based on the wee pattern, the wee bunny is easy to make and very versatile. I used the ever abundant fleece, fuzzy side up, for my solid front but you could use whatever you like. The pattern calls for a pompom butt. I made my using my new pom pom maker and some yarn. You can go that route or you can buy poms at the fabric store or sew one up, whatever works easiest for you. The ears are flat and not stuffed and I just zigzagged them together for the easiest ear possible. If you want puffy ears you could cut the pattern pieces a little larger and sew right sides together, turn inside out and stuff before sewing them into the bunny.
As with all my free patterns, please make them for personal use only. Please don’t make a litter of bunnies and start selling them on etsy. If you’re dying to make some to give away to people you don’t know, why not make some up and donate them to kids at Artists Helping Children, a wonderful organization that distributes donated handmade toys (knitted or sewn) and other handmade items to sick and needy children.
Have fun! Hope this one is bug-free. I’d love to see any finished bunnies and if there is enough interest I’ll start up another flickr gallery for the wee bunnies.
