Dress-Up Bunny Lovey
The Dress-Up Bunny Lovey is a sweet, little rabbit security blanket that will help soothe your little one. This design features three removable accessories: bonnet, big bow headband, and sakura cherry blossom flower headband. The bonnet, in particular, is a hooded hat with two slots that fit perfectly over the ears. The arms are designed with wider hands for young children to easily grip and grasp. The ears are double layered, making them extra plush and also bendable. The blanket is a 12-point star that is quick and easy to work up with mostly double crochet stitches.
This sleepy bunny blanket is the perfect crochet project for making a handmade baby shower gift for newborn infants, or as a birthday gift for toddlers and young children. It is easy to customize with different yarn color combinations, and children will love playing with and dressing up this bunny with her accessories. If gifting to a baby, keep accessories out of reach during sleep time, and monitor during play time.
The PDF pattern file is a DIY tutorial that includes complete written instructions for the bunny lovey and each of her three accessories, photo references for the crocheted parts, and step-by-step explanations for finishing details.
