Carrot the Bunny

Carrot the Bunny

So… it has felt like Spring here these last couple weeks. So much so that we’re cleaning out our closets and I’m getting excited about gardening. The warm sun puts it into a person I think. I know we will likely lapse back into cold winter weather again, but, for now, here’s a little early Spring inspired project. I’ve been enjoying designing and making little amigurumi critters immensely and it helps that children seem to adore them! So here it is, Carrot the Bunny, named for his color. It’s for sale in my store here. And check out below for the free pattern.
