Bella and I had a crafty day today and made some very cute crochet Easter bunnies. The Mama + daughter crafting days don't seem to happen often lately, mainly due to lots of full weekends but also because the littlest member of the household isn't overly keen to create lately.
This morning I noticed a little Easter bunny tutorial popping up all over the online world and when I showed the photos to Bella, there was a spark of enthusiasm to make one. OKay, twist my arm!
We chose yarn and got started early, stopping only for tea breaks and food.
I decided to make one too and it was lovely to sit side by side with my girl, chat and crochet. Even though Bella hasn't picked up a crochet hook in 6 months or so, she's a natural crocheter and can nearly hook as fast as I can.
The ears were pretty fiddly and tiny, so I crocheted all four of those for us and Bella made the pom-pom tails. A pretty good team effort, I think.
Oh and if you would like to make your own bunny for Easter (there's still time - quick, quick!) then there's a free tutorial online for you. Just pop over HERE.
I think they turned out really well - Bella's is the colourful pink/grey one and I crocheted the green one for James. Oh and YES, 17 year old boys still need handmade Mama gifts!!
What about you? Any crafty plans happening for Easter?
