Amigurumi Bunny Pattern

This is a project that I have been meaning to put up on the blog for over a month!  It is my daughter’s very favorite project that I have ever done for her and she carries it around everywhere!  This Amigurumi Bunny was surprisingly easy to do, and I had it done in about 2 hours.  Not bad!  This is the perfect thing to make for your little ones to add to their Easter basket this coming Sunday and I can guarantee that they will think you are so cool for making it.

I purchased the pattern from a shop on Etsy called Winter White Knits.  If you can do a single crochet and a slip stitch, then you can do this pattern for sure.  I decided to do the bunny without the sweater and then added a little bow to the ear just because it is so dang cute.  The bow was really easy too!  I made it using a modified version of my crochet bow pattern.  I started by only chaining 20 and then followed the pattern without worrying about the amount of stitches.

Isn’t that little bunny bum the cutest?!  What do you think?  Have you ever attempted amigurumi before?  This was my first time, and definitely not my last!  I am hooked now and keep looking for the perfect pattern to try for my next one.

Strawberry & Cream Scones

Spring is on its way and I have just the treat for you while waiting! These scones are a bowl full of strawberries and cream in one soft, tender pastry. I mean, what says ‘warm weather’ better than berries and cream? Well, aside from the obvious things like popsicles and grilled pineapple. But we’ll ignore those for now.

Real, fresh strawberries are the star of these scones and they are topped off with a glaze made from rich, thick, heavy cream.  They are best eaten on the day they are baked, but I wish you luck on keeping them around for that long.

If you are looking for a treat that is low in sugar, these scones(without the icing on top) only have 1 1/2 t. of sugar in each one. I feel pretty good about that!

Head on over to my blog for the Strawberry Scone recipe. You can find the recipe for the icing at the bottom of this post.
