How to Crochet Easter Marshmallow Bunnies (Free Pattern)

Food has always been a popular choice for art projects, whether in the form of still life paintings or cute, pastel amigurumi versions of real life food. It symbolizes a lot of things for us, and we immortalize it in our art as a way of recognizing the importance of its place in our lives. It sustains us, brings us together, and inspires us.

Of course, some food is better off staying in our fond memories than being put in our tummies, especially as we get older and have to watch what we eat. That doesn’t mean, however, that we can’t still appreciate the part it played in our childhoods – like these crocheted Easter Marshmallow Bunnies.

Whiskers and Wool’s free crochet pattern is a fun take on these soft, bright treats and you’ll want to make several in a variety of colors in order to appreciate the full effect. These would also make a great centerpiece for a springtime party, layered together in a basket full of fake grass, green ribbon, or raffia.

To make one or more of these cuties, you’ll want to assemble the following crochet materials:

  • 12 yards Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart Acrylic)
  • 3 Beads
  • Fiberfill
  • Size G (4.25mm) Crochet Hook
  • Black Sewing Thread
  • Sewing Needle
  • Yarn Needle

You’ll also need to know the following stitches: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and regular stitch.

Each of these little guys will measure 4″ tall and 1 3/4″ wide.

The pattern calls for a front and back piece, and then using whip stitch, the sides will be sewn up as the fiberfill goes in (the ears do not need stuffing, just the body).

If you’d like to create your own bevy of Easter bunnies, you can find the pattern Whiskers and Wool and there’s another version on Ravelry, courtesy of Dani Speigle.

    DIY Birdhouse ... or Bird Trailer

    by on October 6, 2017 - 0 Comments

    My family loves birds. My grandma and grandpa live in the hills between North and South Carolina, and when I call I always ask my grandparents what birds have been around. They usually have chickadees, wrens, cardinals, and tufted titmouses (which happen to be my favorite). My dad loves hummingbirds and has several feeders on […]

  • Crochet Wallets

    I’ve been looking for a new wallet for months. My old wallet is a particular favorite, picked up at Target because it was a small, blue pleather item with a black French Bulldog on it with red glasses and a bowtie. After a few years, however, the pleather is wearing off and the design is […]

    Try These Knee Highs On For Size (free crochet pattern)

    I always get really excited when I find knee highs. There’s something about long socks that makes me feel fancier — and they keep you warmer, especially if they’re under jeans. Cold jeans are the worst. It has been more difficult to find thick, comfy knee highs of late, but I discovered the other day […]

    PVC is one of those materials that, like duct tape, that can be used for so many more things than the original intended purpose. I’ve seen PVC used for everything from cosplay to birdhouses. PVC is a strong material, easy to work with, and a hardy product that can withstand plenty of hard knocks and […]

    It’s difficult to find the right big bag — you don’t want anything too bulky, but you also don’t want a bag that’s flimsy – after all, you’re going to be carrying groceries, library books, craft projects, snacks, and the necessities and you need something you can depend on, that won’t snap or tear or […]
