Why World Traveling Bunnies? Because I was making some bunnies for the Bunny Drop Project, and I needed a name, and it is my hope that bunnies will eventually
conquer explore the world! These were actually inspired by the Mochimochi Land Tiny Baby Bunnies, but as those are knitted, I crocheted some instead. (I modified the ears and shape though…)
- Small amount of worsted weight yarn in bunny color (3 yards maybe?)
- Even smaller amount in ear color
- Still smaller amount for eye color (I like doing black ears and black eyes so I don’t have any extra ends)
- F (3.75 MM) crochet hook
Row 1: Ch 7, 2sc in 2nd ch from hk and in each ch across (12)
Rows 2-4: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across in front loops only
Row 5: Ch 1, turn, sc2tog 6x in front loops only, fasten off leaving a tail for sewing.
Assembly: Weave the ending tail through the last 6 stitches and pull to tighten, then fold it in half and sew down the side of the rows. Stuff. Now sew the remaining gap closed for the tail.
Ears Find the spare front loops at the top of your bunny where you want the ears to be. Join the ear color (black for me) with a slip stitch and chain 10, sl st in the same space. Sl st across the spare loops until you get to the 2nd ear, then chain 10 and sl st in the same space.
Embroider eyes (I use the long tail I leave when I fasten off the ears) and attach a tail if you like.
You could use the ones from Lollipops and Rainbows, but I hand-wrote all the tags this time like this:
Hello, my name is
I’m a tiny bunny,
take me home with you!
My job is to make you smile. 🙂
