Mint Chocolate Bunny August 6, 2007

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns — gnathalie2 @ 1:30 am

I love mint chocolate chip ice cream!!!  So of course when i went to the freezer to eat some, the kids had eaten it all.  For breakfast.  So I went back to the couch to pout about it, and made this little cutie!!

She’s pretty quick to make friends!!  Her and Wobbly instantly clicked.  And apparently she loves drinking coke as much as i do!!

All that caffeine, and she just can’t sit still for a picture!!  She’s a little flirt, too.  Always sneaking up on Adrian.  She just wants to play!

Finishing:

Stuff head and body before closing. Do not stuff arms or legs.  Sew arms, legs, ears, and head onto body.

For the face i cut out a small ’rounded’ triangle shape and embroidered the nose and mouth on. oh, and the whiskers. I glued on the google eyes.

For the head, I sewed it on so that the starting ’6 sc in ring’ was pointing up some so it would look like the bunny was looking up at me!!

Have fun!!!
