Crochet a Sleepy Mallow Bunny for Easter!

Easter is right around the corner, and if you are like me, you’re thinking about how you can make something special for your little ones this year. We have a bunch of yarn in our stashes just begging to be turned into adorable Easter bunnies, just like our friend Sleepy Mallow Bunny here!

I wanted Sleepy Mallow to be as soft, and as cuddly as possible and so when I saw my Lion Brand Vel-Lux Yarn in my stash, I knew that’s exactly what I wanted to use! This yarn is so lush, and obviously velvety! Perfect for an Easter Bunny!
