DIY Crochet Easter Bunnies
Easter is a season I find it hard to get behind in terms of crafting. Sure, it's an excuse to eat a heck of a lot of chocolate (ohmygod I can't stop eating creme eggs, somebody needs to set up an intervention) but cute Easter crafts seem to be somewhat lacking... Anywho, you may have noticed I've been on a major crochet kick lately - no idea why, but it's like suddenly crochet patterns and yarn types/colours are all I can think about. I used to not be able to read crochet patterns at all, and if a pattern used any stitches other than single and double I'd not even bother trying, but I've been really pushing myself to give it a go recently. So when I spotted this adorable bunny pattern over on Pinterest I had to give it a go!
It was actually a really easy to follow pattern - I had to google how to do a treble stitch and a half double stitch, but other than that it was pretty simple and surprisingly quick. After the first one, they took me about 40 mins each, about 10 mins of which was spent attaching the tail and weaving the ends in! My mum has asked me to make her a garland using different coloured rabbits, so I'll be working on that on the train tonight, plus I'm making up a batch for my friends as little Easter gifts. I wanted to send chocolates, but all the best Easter chocolates (creme eggs and mini eggs) won't go in a large letter envelope, and if you know me you know how much I hate things not fitting in a large letter envelope! So these bunnies are ideal - I can pop them inside Easter cards and VOILA!
Are you guys working on any Easter crafts at all? I'd love to take a peek so please leave links in the comments if you are xoxo
