I was already a HUGE fan of Alison’s patterns, as I’ve been making her gorgeous giraffes. So I was thrilled when she asked me to test her new pattern for this bunny.
I used 8ply cotton yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills in Snow and Pink Rose. Cotton is my favorite yarn to use, especially with Amigurumi. I’ll write a seperate post about my love of cotton and why I prefer using it soon.
I love how Sleepy Bunny ears have been made using tapestry crochet to create little hearts. A technique that isn’t daunting as it looks, as Alison describes in great detail how to make the hearts if you’ve never done tapestry crochet before. And once you’ve done some tapestry crochet, you will want to do more!! I fell in love with this style of crochet after a couple of months of learning to crochet and am planning on doing some tutorials in the future on how to make blankets.
Sleepy Bunny’s arms and legs are very quick to make too, as they are small rounds, and they aren’t stuffed. But they look so cute with the stripes that look like little leg warmers.
The technique of doing the eyes is very well explained in the pattern with photos to guide you too. These eyes are great for babies and little ones, as they are so much safer that the plastic safety eyes. And they create such a cute little personality for bunny.
