Patches the Bunny

Happy new year! Hope that your past year was great, and for your new year to be even better! My new years eve was spent being lazy at home and making up new patterns and ideas for the upcoming months. It took a while before I was able to come up with anything. As I was going through my piles of yarn I kept thinking, what am I going to do with these left over yarn? I know I didn’t want to through them away and or keep it laying there collecting dust. I try not to waste as much yarn as possible when I start on projects and so with my left over yarn, I made Patches the rabbit.

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to make. I kept thinking about making other things such as making clothes pieces for the many other dolls that I already made or many other small things such as cup coasters or doilies. But I settled on making a rabbit.

Now, ask yourself these questions. Do you find that you have yarn balls that aren’t long enough for another big project? Or just enough for a few rounds of one color, but not enough for everything else? Don’t like wasting yarn? This will be the perfect project for you!

It only took me a couple of days to complete Patches. This is counting long breaks in between such as cooking dinner, cleaning, or just being plain bored or frustrated, etc. I promise it’s an easy project for you to do. All that this project requires is the knowledge of how to add a second color in your rounds.

You can purchase Patches in my SHOP!

For this doll I did not stuff the ears. You’re more than welcome to stuff the ears if you prefer to.

If you’re not stuffing the ears pinch the ear together and sew onto head.

If you’re stuffing the ears make sure to not over stuff so you can pinch the tops and sewed shut.

I ran out of pink yarn before I can finish the tail! However, this will be the size that you’ll need if you want to put a little cotton tail on!

There may be mistakes on the pattern, and if you find any, please let me know. I wrote in the process of making the parts, however, now that I’m fully writing the pattern out I may have forgot some along the way.
