Bun Buns the Simple Easter Bunny

Last year I created these super cute and super simple stuffed Bunnies to add to Easter Baskets.

This is another post from my old blog that I definitely needed to move over here and share with all of you! Easter is on it's way and these little guys work up quick, quick, quick...(like a bunny? Ha!)



MATERIALS NEEDED:
Worsted Weight Yarn
H Hook
Fiberfill
3/8" Ribbon
Fabric Paint

STUFF WITH FIBERFILL HERE

25. dec arnd (4). Cut, weave ends through last 4 sts, pull tight to close. Hide string.

EARS
*Made in one continual piece
Ch 6, sc across (5); Ch 8, sc, hdc x 2, dc x 3, hdc down ch; sk 1st sc on base, sl st x 2; ch 8, sc, hdc x 2, dc x 3, hdc down ch; sk next sc on base and sl st to the last one; Ch 1, turn, sc arnd the 1st ear, sl st to middle/sl st, sc arnd the 2nd ear. Fasten.

Cut approx. 12" of Ribbon, wrap around rounds 14 & 15 and pull tight to separate body from head. Tie into a bow.
Paint face on with fabric paint. Of course you can choose to stitch the face as well. I don't suggest using google eyes if you're going to give them to young children because they pull off easily.

And now you have itty bitty bunnies!
