  1. He is awfully cute, I hope someone makes him, too. Makes me wish I could crochet.


    1. He is so cute! I have my fingers crossed that someone will make him! :) I have a hard time following patterns like this, that's my goal to understand them better! :) xo

  2. Aw, he is just adorable... but I'm crochet impaired. :(
    Thinking of checking into the classes that our local yarn store has.

    1. I have a hard time following patterns like this, my goal is to get better at that! lol. A class probably would be fun, you should, crocheting is a lot of fun! I hope someone makes him, he's too cute! :)

  6. Holly your bunny is so cute. I wish I could read crochet instructions but I never learned. Oh I can crochet simple things but that is about it. You did a great job.

    1. Oh I didn't make him, I wish I could, I'm hoping someone will he's so cute!! I can crochet simple things too, I'm not so good at reading the patterns, like this one :) Have a great night! xo Holly

  7. Holly, You are so sweet to give us the directions. Thank you so much. I am definitely going to put this on next year's to-do list! Have a happy Easter! Elizabeth

  8. This bunny is the cutest. I will have to dust off my crochet needles and attempt him after Easter. The only crochet that I have worked on is the single crochet, sometimes a double and rarely a triple. I have only made amigurumi things so he will be a challenge :) Thank you so much for posting the pattern. Have a wonderful Easter, Holly

    1. Oh I can't wait to see him made! He's so cute! I have a hard time following patterns...lol. I can crochet more simple things :) But I hope you give him a try! Wishing you and your family a wonderful Easter weekend!! :) xo

  9. Hey Holly,
    I forgot to tell you where I get my plastic "wine" glasses that I used for a cloche with the yellow fuzzy chick. I find them in the wedding section at Hobby Lobby. Some people use the bottom of the cup to make the bottom of the cloche but I like to use pretty scrapbooking paper. Have a great Good Friday, Holly

    1. Oh thank you!! I will have to get some of those! They make the cutest little clutches!!! I do love yours, they are so pretty and cute! :) Thanks!! xo


I love reading each of your comments thank you so much for stopping by for a visit!!! :)
