Easter craftiness

I think that Norway might have the world’s longest Easter holiday, at least for students and school kids, starting the weekend of Palm Sunday and lasting all of next week, plus Easter Monday. So ten whole days off is plenty of time to get a lot of crafting done 🙂

I took a bunch of wips with me on holiday, but I miscalculated the amount of yarn to bring, so a couple of things still aren’t done. Boo. I’m almost done with a new Bug, a set of Dudes is about half-done, but lack of proper internet made research pretty difficult, so progress has been slow. I’ve been working on another Hansigurumi creature (finished last night, so a post about that will come later), and I’ve made a bunch of new Jellybean Bunnies 🙂

We’ll be going home on Tuesday, so I hope to get round to blogging some more then. Plus I want to finish the patterns and get them uploaded pretty soon as well, before I have to start revising for my exams. My summer is less than two months away!

Suddenly, a bunny!

Meet the Jellybean Bunny 🙂

When I woke up this morning I had this idea in my head that I just had to try, and so, a few hours later a new pattern was published! I just thought of little rabbits that was made in one piece, ears first, and in different bright colors like jellybeans. And it’s also a little inspired by the simple shape of chocolate bunnies, which I love, but always feel a little bad for eating. They are so cute! So yes, based on my two favorite things to eat at Easter, jellybeans and chocolate bunnies 🙂

The pattern includes a bit of shaping on the head, but otherwise it’s very quick and easy. And since it’s made in one piece, minimal sewing is required. The pattern is up on Ravelry and Etsy, in time for Easter and everything 🙂
