Let us welcome Lil’ Granny Bunny to the family! Another meaningful creation I made specially for my one an only loving and caring Grandmother. I’ve always wanted to crochet something meaningful for her and I’m glad she made her own request. Here’s what she wants:

- A bunny rabbit
- With long ears
- Size to fit nicely in her hands
- Do not want the bunny to be all white because it will get dirty really fast

I’ve been working on this creation ever since she requested a few weeks ago. What do you think?
Lil’ Granny Bunny is approximately 7inches tall and 5.5inches wide.
