March Monthly- Spring Bunny

Ok. Finally this little sucker is done. I was able to work at it and get everything done pretty much the way I wanted to. So March’s monthly softie is a spring bunny for the spring equinox. There are eggs in the basket, so if you want to do all eggs and no flowers and make this an Easter bunny, it wouldn’t be a stretch. I made three flowers and two eggs, but there’s no right way to do it!

There will be no pattern next week, but I’ll be back the following week with something new!
