Amigurumi Bunny Egg

Here’s a quick bunny to whip up before Easter. I used a large plastic egg with a diameter of approximately 2.25″ and a height of 3″. I bought an actual egg full of them at Target. Maybe when Easter’s over, I’ll crochet over the big egg? Cover the world in crochet!

Ears

Rounds 3-7: 1 SC in each st. (8)
Finish off. Use end to attach ears to the top of head, as shown in the example.

Use embroidery floss to stitch a happy face on your bunny.

Before you do any permanent attaching, stretch the parts over your plastic Easter egg. If it feels a little snug, just stretch it a bit!

Attach each part to the egg using hot glue. I like to attach the very top center first, then stretch the rest over and use glue along the edge. Be careful with the hot glue and your finger tips!
