Step 1: Draw Your Pattern

Picture of Draw Your Pattern
This pattern comes from the blog revoluzza.com.  It’s in German, but the pictures are pretty easy to follow.  First, draw out the shape for your bunny on a piece of paper (I taped together two pieces of 8.5 x 11 to get it big enough).  Draw the oval for the face, two circles for the cheeks, a heart, and a panel for the back pocket if desired.  This type of pattern is easy to manipulate, so adapt it any way you like!
 

Oh my gosh, this is so cute!
