On a whim I created the Quacktastic duck bookmark crochet pattern. Annnnnd now I can’t stop making different animals. I will be adding a pig and a frog (patterns to come as soon as I’m finished editing) to the collection, and today we are adding a bunny rabbit bookmark crochet pattern to the mix! An adorable hippity hoppity reading bunny.
This little bunny rabbit bookmark is simply adorable – and perfect for Easter baskets!! Make him in gray or white, add a large or small pom pom for his tail and make his face as long or as happy as you like.
