Here’s a quick and cute bunny project that is perfect for Easter or any gift giving occasion. Crochet Bunny Pockets work up in one piece and have a cute little pouch that is the perfect size for a gift card or fun size candies! This pattern is a simplified version of my Gingerbread Man Gift Card Holder that I made over the holidays. That pattern was such a huge hit, I knew I needed to do more with it!.
– Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Perfect Pink, Pale Yellow, Pale Plum, and Aruba Sea + White for tail.

Morning Sarah , I just saw your Bunny pouch and thought it was the perfect thing for my grandson’s . There to big for baskets and was thinking of something to do and this is a great I deal. Thank you so much. I just made it and love it. I have been watching you since your boys were toddlers. You always make great things so impressive. Love your work. Have a blessed day.

Super Cute Idea!!! Mine might be a bit bigger, more room for candy, because I mindlessly grabbed an I hook. I also used a continuous spiral, the ears were still in the same spot. Gotta run for more yarn to make one for GD1 as I’m out of her favorite color. LOL
These are so cute I love it

Thank you for the pattern, I just made mine. But did not chain, I did in continues rounds, and with the chain ten I sc in the back bump so you dont see the little holes. I did slip stitch round the ears to help them stand up. Super cute!
Thank you so much for the adorable pattern. I just finished making a dozen for some of the littles in my life. Question…did you block your ears or do something else to them to get them to not curl? Every one of mine curled…I used different yarns. I am hoping that blocking them will at least straighten them a little.

Thanks so much for the pocket bunny pattern, just what I was looking for. I also turned the bottom half of the bunny into a wee basket with either a handle or bunny ears. Used up a lot of scrap yarn. To make the ears a little stiffer I rubbed some Elmer’s glue on them, seemed to work.
