Free Pattern: Baby Bunny Farm Animal

Storyland Amis, Free Pattern, Baby Easter Bunny Farm Animal

It’s time for another free farm animal pattern! This time we have some cute little bunnies just in time for Easter!

**Be sure and check out my first three farm animal patterns, Billy the Baby Pig, Cooper the Rooster, and Lyla the Baby Lamb.

Meet Theodore the Bunny and his cousin, Walter! Theodore and Walter love carrots and are often scolded for snitching carrots from the garden. They are the best of friends and do everything together. Spring is their favorite time of the year and they love nothing more than being able to romp around in the fresh green grass!

Make one or two (or a dozen!) of these little bunnies for Easter this year! Imagine how cute they’d look in an Easter basket!

Difficulty: Easy! This pattern is perfect for beginners.

 Worsted weight (4 ply) yarn in any color (I used Red Heart Super Saver in colors “Warm Brown” and “Cafe Latte“.)

 9mm safety eyes (I buy mine online HERE or HERE)

 20mm Pom Pom maker (I purchased mine at JoAnn’s but you can find a similar one HERE.)

 Polyfil (or your stuffing or choice)

Tapestry/yarn needle (I love these Clover Bent Chibi needles HERE)

 Small amount of pink embroidery floss (for mouth)

 Stitch marker (I highly recommend these HERE)

Now sew the front feet to R8 of the body approx. with the end that is sewn closed pointing toward the back of the body.

Sew a couple of stitches from the sides of the front feet to the side of the body so that they don’t flop around.

Sew the back feet to about R3-4 of the body or so that the front of the back foot touches the back of the front foot.

Then weave your tail to the tip of the back foot’s front and tack it down to the body so that it doesn’t flop around.

Tail (using any color yarn)

For my tail I used a 20mm pom pom maker which you can find HERE. If you don’t know how to use one, check out this great tutorial HERE. I trimmed mine down considerably so it would be small enough.
