The Easter Bunny Buddies Pattern looks great in lots of fabrics. Michelle of Michelle’s Zoo made a trio of cuddly minky bunnies, while Amy Rutland-Jones used baby clothes to make a one-of-a-kind keepsake.

Meet Baby Bunny! This little cutie was the very first Funky Friend. With baby-safe embroidered features, this toy is perfect for even the newest names on your Easter list.  Elaine Hall upcycled a sweater to make this precious brown and pink Baby Bunny, and Gwendolyn H. used purple fleece and flannel for a sweet floral Baby Bunny.
