|Pink Plush Bunny Pillow Doll|
The Easter Bunny (or Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) legend began in the 1680s in Germany as a folklore figure and symbol of Easter.
In the legend, the Easter Bunny brings colored eggs, and sometimes candy or toys, in a basket to give to good little girls and boys.
Let's go 'hoppin' down the bunny trail' while I tell you about the bunny rabbits the Easter Bunny inspired me to crochet for my Etsy Shop I call Coastal Crochet Crafts.
|A Collection of Bunny Rabbits|
Plush Pink Bunny Rabbit with Dress
|Pink Bunny Girl on Etsy|
Pink Bunny Girl comes with a dress done in a blue, pink, rose and white ombre yarn. The dress is pinafore style and ties on the back around the neck.
The dress is easy to put on by having little Rabbit just step into the dress and pull it up to tie in a bow around her neck. She is filled with soft polyfil and has plastic safety eyes for her eyes and nose.
Plush Toy Golden Bunny Girl Doll
|Plush Toy Bunny Girl|
Golden Bunny Girl measures 9 inches tall (11 inches tall when you count her 'bunny ears') and 6 inches tall in a sitting position. She is about 5 inches across. Bunny Girl has safety eyes for her features and she is softly stuffed with polyfil.
Her wardrobe of 3 dresses includes one in green, one in purple and a colorful dress created with an ombre variegated yarn called "Artist Print" with shades of purple, lavender, rose, burgundy, gold, blue and green. Each dress measures 4 inches long with 8 inch long crocheted 'ties'. Her dresses are crocheted in a pinafore style with a ruffle around the hem.
Pink Plush Floppy Eared Bunny Rabbit Pillow Doll
|Plush Pink Bunny Pillow Doll|
Pink Bunny has floppy ears attached to the top of her head and a manufactured white poofy acrylic ball for a tail. Her eyes are embroidered in lavender yarn.
Bunny Rabbit doll has a pretty lavender ribbon tied around her neck and two lavender ribbon bows - one on each ear. The ribbons are simply tied on with a bow and can be removed, if needed.
Soft and safe, cuddly and hugable -- a sweet pink bunny rabbit for a special child -- or a sweet baby gift for that darling new baby girl.
Bugs Bunny Design on a Tissue Box Cover
|Bugs Bunny Design on a Tissue Box Cover|
Besides crochet, I also create in needlepoint on plastic canvas. A favorite bunny for Easter or anytime has long been Bugs Bunny, so I stitched him on a cover for a boutique size tissue box.
Bugs is stitched in gray, peach, white and orange acrylic yarn with black accents on eyes and whiskers. The "Bugs" design appears on two sides, with plain red stitching on the other two sides and the top. Each panel is trimmed in black with brown edgings. The background of the tissue box cover is bright red. It measures just under 6" tall x 5" wide.
This Bugs Bunny cover comes with a matching red coaster with a gray bunny design. The coaster will delight a child when used for a tooth brushing rinse cup or for that bedtime glass of water.
