Time to share my love for the Bitty Bunnies! In our rush to go on our annual Easter holiday, I forgot to share my latest pattern release with you all. So here’s a quick introduction to these adorable miniature bunnies in their sweet carrot sleeping bags.
The Bitty Bunnies were designed as an alternative to the traditional chocolate Easter gift. And they made a lovely addition to my kid’s Easter baskets. But they’re so adorable, they’re perfect all year round!
Measuring only 2.5″ (6.5cm) tall, the bunnies are hand stitched with the smallest of felt scraps. Their little bunny bellies are adorned with a teeny tiny heart. Their sleepy eyes and small smiles are so sweet.
Each bunny fits perfectly in their carrot sleeping bag.
Add some ribbon when stitching the carrots, and they become a sweet little necklace, to keep your bunny close.
The Bitty Bunnies also fit snugly inside a matchbox. You can stitch them a blanket and a pillow for their own miniature bed. What could be cuter?
Like all Molly and Mama patterns, this PDF pattern is written with the beginner in mind. It has easy to follow directions, step-by-step instructions, lots of clear photos, tips and tricks and more.
All you need are felt scraps, matching embroidery floss, and a little bit of stuffing!
You can sew these little bunnies up by following the pattern explicitly, just like these pretties made by Kristen of Meadowbrook. Aren’t they lovely?
Or you can use the template to create your own interpretation. I love how Ali from Arabesque Scissors has added some gorgeous fabric additions. The extra carrots and pillows are divine. And that bow… so sweet!
I love these pastel bunnies from Elizabeth (SewLizzy5). Look at that tiny, neat stitching!
