I know likespointysticks told me she used a pom pom (commercially made, not the wrapped around cardboard and cut around the sides type.) What did everyone else do for bunny tails?

I did the wrapped cardboard home-made type. I then wasted a good 20 minutes of my life sliding a pin through the twist in the yarn to make it fluffier. I think a contrast tail is cute too.
How did yours turn out sallymania?

Do you stitch? Do you bitch? Do you live in BrisVegas?? http://brisbanesnb.wordpress.com/

Well, here is my Mr. Bunny - actually, I've decided it's a girl. Whatcha gonna do?



This is Charlotte. She was made over a span of a few days with Misti Chunky Alpaca (huge splurge, but worth it for the softness!) and a fleecy white boucle yarn for her tail (a homemade pompom) and the lining of her ears.



Her face was "embroidered" with a thin black yarn (I think it was Simply Soft) because I couldn't find any black embroidery floss. I also spent some time looking for glass eyes and sorting through buttons, but ultimately I'm pleased with how the yarn turned out.



I modified the pattern quite a bit. Because the yarn was so thick, I used size 9 needles. I started with 16 stitches, but increased by 8 stitches and I believe only ended up with 48 (or maybe 56) stitches to do the bulk of the body. I decreased back down to 16 stitches to do the neck. I followed instructions for the most part in making up the head/face but took some liberties in how I rounded the back of the head, picked up stitches, and did the decreases. I had to keep telling myself, "no matter what you do, it will look like SOMETHING when you're finished!"

The arms I made longer and then did a few increase rounds to get that paw-type shape. The legs are finished with a kitchener stitch, which I really liked. For the ears I made up how to decrease so it looked more or less even on both sides, then just knit the linings by fitting it to the inside and fixing things when I sewed them in.

Overall, it was a great project and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Thanks for the pattern!

WickedKrez: I freaking LOVE your Mr. Bunny!

He reminds me of my wee Bentley Bunny.... in fact, they could be brothers. Minus the fact that one of them isn't quite alive.  Cheesy

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Fat bunny! I like him indeed

Wickedkez, I like the haughty angle of your bunny's nose. We need more bunnies with attitude

Hi, my name is Meredith, a.k.a merbear and I was hoping that I could get your permission to use Mr. Bunny in a service project that my church is doing this year.  We are making and donating animals to a local hospital here (for the children there) in Albuquerque and need patterns.  This is completely donations (absolutely no sales involved).  I hope to hear from you soon.  Thanks.

When presenting the patterns to my church I was hoping to give credit to the artist.  Do you go by any other name then likespointysticks? Thanks again!
