Tiny Rabbit

Jay and I have been going on walks a lot more lately. The warmer weather and the sunshine is enough to draw these two home bodies out of hibernation. Despite the construction and traffic, I still feel the freshness of the season and the excitement that in just one more week Little Sister Sue will be arriving. These things combined – oh, and Easter too – inspired me to make this adorable tiny rabbit:Tiny Rabbit front - Pops de Milk

But before, when I had just finished sewing the head and body together Jay walked in the room and saw the bunny. Usually when he sees a project I’ve finished he’ll say, “That’s so cute,” or, “That’s so awesome,” and then proceed to do a few karate moves with it before giving it back. But because the needle was still attached to the rabbit, he finished his action scene with this:Warrior Bunny and Jay - Pops de Milk

Of course now I can’t picture the bunny as a cute spring creature, instead he is now a warrior bunny! (Good thing I’ve got extra needles…)Warrior Bunny - Pops de Milk

  1. Thanks for this lovely pattern! I love little bunnies that I can make in the blink of an eye, so I can give them away to people who comment on me crafting as I am on a bus, or waiting at the hospital. Just like to make people smile! X
