Great of you to take a look at my first Instructable, which features my first ever made pattern! I hope you like it as much as I do.
I just had to make something to bring me in the Spring-mood. Bunnies were a perfect solution! They aren't too Easter-y, so they can stay till Summer.
A bunny was my solution, but finding the perfect bunny was kind of hard. I saw ones with big ears, big feet, weird bodies and so on. None of them really made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, till I saw these sweet (literally) Sugar Bunnies by Carolyne on The Party Artisan. I just had to crochet them!
Since the bunnies made by Carolyne were made out of fondant, I had to make my own pattern. I did this with a lot of trial-and-error and a small bit of cheating (weaving in holes and stuff), but I think the end result is cute, that's what matters.
While reading this Instructable, keep in mind that I'm kind of new to amigurumi.. This is the second
project I've ever amigurumi-ed. This is my first time creating a pattern. So if something is unclear, wrong or could have been better, please, do not hesitate to let me know!
Have fun creating and treasuring these sweet little creatures, all Spring long ;)
