I have a Christmas decoration collection that is by any measure massive, impressive, excessive, magical, any of the above, all of the above.
I have a hearty pumpkin decoration collection for Thanksgiving and Autumn. For the other holidays of the year, I have a wreath…maybe a pillow or two.
I decided I needed a new project (because all the others I have going were getting lonely). I decided to make something new for Easter.
I used the Rosy the Rabbit pattern from my Crochet Cute Critters book by Sarah Zimmerman to make a Mama and a Papa bunny.
I used Premier Yarns Serenity Chunky yarn in the color “Cloud Dancer” for Mama (I just happened to have this skein in my collection). I intended to do both bunnies in this yarn, but I did not have enough to do two, so I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up some Baby Bee Sweet Chunky Delight yarn in the color “Flannel Marled”. And Papa turned out just as cute!
I followed the pattern…

…but embellished Mama by adding eyelashes with embroidery thread.
Part one of this project is simply the crocheting of the bunnies. Coming up soon: accessories, and the final display set up.
Stay tuned! And until then, happy trails and bunny tails!
