Dust Bunnies love to hang out with you while you work on your computer and help you clean your screen with their noodly tentacle-y legs.

They are very easy to make and make great gifts! I've included two patterns so you can make a bunny or an alien one. This is a unique A Little Stranger pattern you won't find anywhere else!

All the dust bunnies pictured are for sale in my etsy shop.

Step 1: You will need

g) Scissors
h) Marker Pen
