Bunny Pincushions

So far, I've been holding steady. Resisting the urge to make those grannys. But dang it...they're dropping like flies. Bad Fortune Cookie, Creative Little Daisy, Flibbertygibbet (the Babette is close enough), and {gasp} Yarnstorm are all "doin' it." And last night at KnitNight, Junie asked me "How hard are those granny squares to make?" She's wondering. She's thinking about it. Bunny pincushions are taking my mind off of those grannies. For today, anyway.

Years ago I made bunny pincushions for the women in my family. Shortly thereafter, my little bunny disappeared. I ended up with MeMum's but I've always felt guilty about it. So, I finally got around to making a replacement for her. And if you're making one, you might as well make several! That way, if your bunny decides to take a hike, you'll have a spare.

XOXO,
Anna

How adorable! Do you have a pattern for them? I know several people that would love one.

What do you normally stuff a pincushion with? Yours are adorable!

They're fabulous! You would make a killing with these at craft fairs... I am still undecided on the crochet project, so I've started a striped blanket, and will do a granny square project on the side - rather than choose I thought I'd just buy more yarn...!
I just bought the Jan Eaton 200 crochet squares book, and I would recommend it.

Oh ThimbleAnna!!! Your bunnies are so sweet! How did you make all of these as busy as you are? Are you sure they didn't just reproduce overnight? ;-) Love the fabrics, a great way to use your scraps. Junie

O I want one!!!! They are adorable. Looks like you (or they) have been busy!
I understand you are resisting the granny square urge, I tried to resist the square but it just became the hexagon - take a look if you dare!
