As I’ve been working on my Jane Austen Playset, I’ve been asking friends for any input they might have. What DO Regency Era manors look like when they are inhabited by aristocratic bunnies? How do aristocratic bunnies spend their time? I’ve had so many questions, and have received a lot of fun responses. But my favorite so far has been the suggestion that the home is filled with baby bunnies. I laughed so hard. Of course a love story starring several rabbits would lead to many bunnies hopping around!
So I went to work making a bunny pattern. It has to be quick and easy to make because I wanted to make quite a few for my playset. (Because it really gets funnier the more you make, in my opinion.) I also wanted the pattern to be able to stand alone and work if someone just wanted to make a single bunny instead of a full playset like I’m working on. I figured if I could design something that would fit inside an Easter egg, the pattern would have the potential to get lots of use each year to make Easter gifts. And with that in mind, I went to work.
Strangely enough, it took me quite a few tries before getting this one right. Sometimes the simple patterns come to me quickly, and other times it takes a lot of work to get them perfectly simple. But in the end I think I’ve got it figured out.
