Happy Monday everyone!
Archie and I are so excited that Spring is coming!
It is March already and we can smell it in the crisp Colorado air!
Bunnies are romping everywhere we look!
R-Chee loves to chase them under the bushes so I thought I would make one that we could enjoy indoors too!
I made this wonderful little crocheted doll from my newly learned and & loved craft, Tunisian Crochet, which uses a long crochet hook that you work on and off of the needle just like knitting!
This little bunny is a gift for me! :)
He was so FUN to make!
I LOVED seeing him spring to life!
Like my other dolls, I did not have a pattern.
I just crocheted a long rectangle in a Tunisian Simple Stitch and then folded it over, sewed the sides, stuffed and shaped him a bit.
Then I free formed crocheted the ears, arms and legs & white bobble tail with my regular G hook and sewed them on with a yarn needle.
All of the yarn, pom-pom & button embellishments were pulled out of a stash of all my favorite wool yarns and vintage buttons that I have collected over the years. :)
Easter lands on March 31st this year!
He is off to look for Easter Eggs!
Tomorrow I will show you some new sweater vests that are inspired by wonderfully colorful dyed Easter eggs!
Have a Super Day everyone!
See you tomorrow!
Melissa & R-Chee
