Bun Buns the Simple Easter Bunny

This is another post from my old blog that I definitely needed to move over here and share with all of you! Easter is on it’s way and these little guys work up quick, quick, quick… (like a bunny? Ha!)

Finishing

  • Cut approx. 12″ of Ribbon, wrap around rounds 14 & 15 and pull tight to separate body from head. Tie into a bow.
  • Paint face on with fabric paint. Of course you can choose to stitch the face as well. I don’t suggest using google eyes if you’re going to give them to young children because they pull off easily.

And now you have itty bitty bunnies!
