Introducing: Brook the Bunny!
Brook is a super cute and fast bunny amigurumi, sure to perk up any day!
She makes a super easy gift, for Mums and kids alike! (I’d like one myself, but I’m guessing most dads wouldn’t really care… :P)
Brook is crocheted in Bernat Blanket Yarn, which is my absolute favorite! If you’d like to read more about Bernat Blanket Yarn, and why I use it for amigurumi, then click that link!
Look below to read Brook’s story!
“Brook’s momma named her for the lovely stream that runs by their burrow. Not the most creative, but she had eaten a few mushrooms earlier that day, and wasn’t feeling great…
Brook and her twin brother Creek get into all sorts of mischief!
(the mushrooms were very bad indeed…)
These little bunnies are curious (but also timid) so they go back and forth to decide who checks out the green floppy thing on the streambank!Woodland Amigurumi
(if was Fitz, in case you’re wondering) “
If you’d like to learn more about the Woodland Amigurumi Collection, go read this post HERE to get more info! The eBook will be released in a few weeks!
Brook was technically the first in this collection, but of course, I messed up and totally forgot that I had signed her up to be in the Mother’s Day Blog Hop! Now that that’s over and done with, I can get back to designing more squishirumi. Yay!
