MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Preamble

MellyGurumi Easter Bunny Preamble

MellyGurumi Easter Bunny

A FREE MINI CROCHET ALONG (CAL)

The MellyGurumi Easter Bunny is my very first full amigurumi creation – and hopefully the first of many more.  Her pattern is easy to follow, with step by step instructions, loads of photos and helpful hints – she also comes with her own unique birth certificate.

She is fun to create, and you can use your imagination when decorating her dress and the eggs in her basket.

She is perfect for cuddling and is a great yarn buster.
