Bunny love

Happy Easter everybunny!

Olive is getting a rabbit, a really bloody cute Netherland Dwarf rabbit, and she’s decided to name it ‘Little Rabbit FouFou’. No, I’m not kidding. Anyway, because of the new addition to the family, we’ve all gone a bit cray for bunnies. As it’s Easter bank holiday weekend I felt an overwhelming urge to crochet some fluffy friends for Olive’s room, in anticipation of the arrival of her new actual real-life rabbit. Because I love you (and rabbits), I thought I’d wish you all a wonderful weekend and share the pattern with you for FREE!
