Free Knitting Pattern: Little Bunny Foo Foo

Just in time for Easter here is the Little Bunny Foo Foo knitting Pattern for you. It only takes a couple of hours to make your own bunny so its perfect for last minute Easter presents!

I’ll get the pattern on Ravelry so you can download the PDF and put the craft kits in my etsy shop as soon as I can, but I’m still without internet at home and snatching at wi-fi when I can!

On another note, thank you to all the lovely people I met at the Make Lounge last night! We had a great night and we’re looking forward to coming back in June. Before that though there’s lots of Craft Guerrilla events coming up so check the website craftguerrilla.com for full details.

NEW VENUES: 93 Feet East, Brick Lane and The Old Queens Head, Islington both launching in May.

Making up

Using the black yarn enclosed and a darning needle stitch on the eyes as crosses placing them where you like. You can totally change the expression of your bunny depending on where you choose to place the eyes!

Once you have sewn on the eyes place the right sides of your bunny together and use a running stitch to sew all around the sides leaving a space at the bottom for stuffing.

Stuff your bunny with the polyfil stuffing in your kit and then sew up the hole at the bottom.

Now go find some field mice to bop on the head!
