WIP 05/30/17 Woodland Themed Afghan – Bunny Bum Applique

I think I’ve lost my crojo…. this bunny is all I’ve mustered to crochet in the last week and a half. I’ve been really busy, though… my daughter had a birthday of which we had two parties, one one day for her friends and another the next day with just family. My next time stealer has been all the home and yard work that comes with this beautiful, hot weather. Sadly, we are waiting on a rototiller so my garden is still a weedy mess. All my plant starts are bursting out of their little black containers. If all goes well, though, I’m hoping to have a garden by this weekend! In the meantime, I’m going to try and make it my mission to work on this blanket! I have two pine trees left and four appliques to make…. maybe more, because I’m a perfectionist and can’t help but want to redo/replace some appliques I’ve already made. 🙂

Here’s my latest applique… a bunny’s butt, er, bum! Let me know how you like him!

Use long tail to attach ears to body and, when it’s time, to attach to granny square. You can, however, not sew ears down on granny square for a kind of 3D effect.

TAIL
