  • 00:00: so the color change would be even less visible. You can cut the raspberry-colored strand of yarn since we won't need it anymore. and in the same way knit the next 2 rows with the white colored yarn without any changes. All 3 rows have been knitted. Connect ... Now we will have a decrease. This is the sole.
  • 00:31: Knit 1 sc and 1 decrease. Chain, in it a single crochet in the 2nd and 3rd loop we have a decrease. next... one sc and one... decrease Continue knitting like this until the end of the row. Done. You can see we have a small hole left.
  • 01:01: Fill the leg... with cotton or any other filling you might be using. The leg is filled. Now knit 6 decreases.
  • 01:33: Chain, in the same catch the yarn next catch and pull through all 3. The 1st decrease is done. Next one, catch the next loop catch the one after also and pull through all 3. The 2nd decrease is done. Next...
  • 02:07: the 3rd decrease... then... decrease #4 #5 and the last... 6th decrease and connect... with the very first loop.
  • 02:38: Here is our leg. We have 6 loops in the circumference. Knit 2 rows with 6 sc each. Chain... sc #1 sc #2 sc #3 sc #4 sc #5
  • 03:10: sc #6 connect and one more row like this Chain sc #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6
  • 03:40: connect pull the loop Everything is the same. Hide... the yarn behind the neighboring loops and put it inside the leg. The leg is done. Shape it... bell shape...
  • 04:14: something like this. Do the same for the 2nd leg. Next are the ears. Take a strand of the main color. Make a main loop... Now we will need to knit 5 sc instead of the regular 6.
  • 04:46: 2 chains (= 1 sc) sc #2 #3 #4 and #5. Connect in the 1st one. Here are our 5 single crochets. Now, a chain, and in every make 2 sc. There should be a total of 10.
  • 05:17: #1 #2 in the next one sc #3 #4 then #5 #6 sc #7 #8 #9 #10
  • 05:47: Connect by skipping one. We have knitted 10 increases. The next row should have 1 sc and 1 increase. Chain, sc, increase 3rd loop, a single crochet the 4th one - an increase repeat until the end of the row. Now 3 rows with no changes.
  • 06:20: The 3 rows are done. This is the last loop. Don't connect it but catch the main yarn There should 2 on the hook Now change the color (if you'd like to) You can make the ears in one color but I prefer to have some variety. Take the other color pull...
  • 06:53: and connect with the other color. Tighten the strands behind and knit one row with the new color without any changes. The row's done.
  • 07:23: Here's the last loop. Knit it... then connect... with the 1st loop but catch the main strand of yarn and push through the loop. Now knit one more row without any changes.
  • 07:53: The row's done. Connect with the 1st loop. The result is this strip. I think it's interesting. You can cut the colored strand of yarn. Now 3 sc and 1 decrease. Chain
  • 08:26: sc #1 sc #2 #3 and 1 decrease. One more time, sc #1 #2 #3 and a decrease. and one more time... connect...
  • 09:00: Knit 2 rows without changes. Then in the next row 2 sc and 1 decrease. Chain, sc #1 sc #2 and knit one... decrease One more time one single crochet sc #2
  • 09:31: and a decrease. and a third time... Connect with the first loop The next row 9 single crochets without changes. And then repeat the same for the following 2 rows. The ear is done.
  • 10:14: No need to fill it. The seam where we have all of the first rows will be the side of the ear making it invisible. This is how the ear should look. Repeat the same for the other ear. The last piece is the bunny's tail. Make the main loop. 6 single crochets Connect in the 1st loop
  • 11:09: and make 6 increases meaning there should be 12 loops (2 in each). Chain, The 1st and the 2nd sc in one loop then #3 and #4 etc. up to 12. Connect by skipping one The next row is 12 sc without any changes.
  • 11:42: Connect Now make 6 decreases Chain #1 #2 Pull through all 3 then a decrease One more time #1 #2 2nd decrease next decrease #3 #4
  • 12:19: dec #5 and #6 and connect. Pull cut, hide It's not necessary to fill the tail but you can put a little amount of cotton if you wish. This is the tail.
  • 12:49: All the pieces are ready, but before we start collecting our toy we'll decorate the ears. This also depends on your wish. You can do it, but you don't have to. I chose these shiny beads We will sew them along the raspberry-colored lines For this you will need a special thin needle for beads, or even a regular thin needle,
  • 13:21: regular white thread (cotton or synthetic) We can start sewing the beads. One ear is done.
  • 13:59: This is how it looks. No need to make any knots on the thread nor on the ears simply push the thread through the white color several times. Cut the thread Repeat the same procedure for the 2nd ear. Now that all the parts are done we can start collecting the toy.
  • 14:38: Start by connecting the body with the head. You will need approximately 5-6 pins scissors white threads and my advice to take a little longer and thicker needle to make the collecting of the pieces more comfortable. The thread should be double Put the rest of the pieces on the side for later
  • 15:12: Sewing the head to the torso. This is the seam from the head Find the seam on the torso and connect on the same line. After you put the pieces together you will need to fixate them using the pins. and gradually sew the pieces together.
  • 15:54: Sew as close to the connection as you can so that the thread will not be seen afterwards. Make a knot One is enough and then simply push the thread through like we did with the ears in order to fixate the connections better
  • 16:25: and nothing would fall apart. Cut the thread and remove the pins. Shape it...
  • 16:57: check it... Here are the body and the head together Next are the legs This seam will be on the side of the toy so having that in mind put the toy on the table take the legs and add them to the torso.
  • 17:30: You probably can't see this very good and pin them I'll do it and I'll show you so you can see it better It should be something like this
  • 18:01: the legs are barely holding for now so we need to sew them to the torso. Check how the soon-to-be bunny is sitting and whether you like what you've done so far... It sits OK. Need to sew the tail so it would be more stable.
  • 18:35: Next, put the thread on the side, don't cut it, The tail will be placed symmetrically to the legs. Something like this... Fixate with the pins and with the thread which we used for the legs start sewing the tail...
  • 19:12: The tail has been sewn. Don't cut the thread yet we still need to sew the hands Take all the pins out Shape the tail and check how the bunny sits Now let's connect the hands...
  • 19:46: Check how you want to attach them whether up or down or forward that's already up to you Fixate the hands with the pins and sew them to the body. The hands have been connected
  • 20:21: and the bunny is sitting very stable, which is excellent. Now it's time to attach the ears to the head. You can do this anyway you want There are many options whether simply up like this or wider or you can sew them something like this I will sew them upwards.
  • 20:55: Place the bunny on the table try to make them as symmetrical as possible, the same like before fixate the ears using the pins and sew... The first ear has been sewn. Take out the pins
  • 21:26: and check how good it's holding Place the bunny back on the table and once again try to fixate the other ear as even to the first one as possible The ears have been sewn.
  • 22:20: Tighten with a knot and push the thread through several times in random directions to tighten the connection of the entire toy. and then cut the thread always as close to the body as possible. Here's our bunny. Now it's the nose's turn to be sewn. For that cut a small piece of thread
  • 22:50: matching the sole color, or the color of the ear strips or if your bunny is one-colored then take any thread to your liking My strand of yarn is rather thick, so I'll separate it Here's the piece of thread Now you need to take a suitable needle which by thickness matches the strand of yarn This is the one I'll take
  • 23:24: I advice you to also take something thicker. No need for any knots. Choose the approximate spot where you want the nose to be This is the spot I chose The thickness of the nose should be approximately 2 rows.
  • 24:01: Start sewing Since we didn't make a knot pull the thread up to this point so you can barely see the ending and very accurately start sewing. Don't pull the thread too hard
  • 24:32: otherwise you'll pull it out and gradually shape the nose. Here's the nose
  • 25:17: Now, push on the cheek a little and cut the thread The leftover is visible, but when you put the head back to its former shape that ending disappears. The nose is done. Now we will sew the eyes.
  • 25:50: For the eyes you will need mid-sized needle you can use the same one we used for connecting the pieces The eyes themselves are 2 black beads (or it can be any other color) and threads that match the color of the eyes My thread is black. Choose the distance between the eyes and their position It can be further, closer, up or down
  • 26:23: as you wish and sew. Don't pull the thread from eye to eye. After you sew one eye, fixate it, and then cut the thread. Symmetrically place the other eye
  • 27:02: and sew... The eyes have been sewn. This can be the end, but we're going to make a flower. A decoration on the bunny's head a flower using matching colors of satin ribbons. The width of the white ribbon is 3 cm (1.18 inches)
  • 27:36: and the width of raspberry-colored ribbon is 2 cm (0.78 inch) They can be the same width, I just don't have such. Those are the basic colors. For the leafs a thin green ribbon with a width of 1 cm (0.4 inch) You can use a different color or not make a flower at all. It depends on you. And then different options for the middles based on your taste, whichever you like, whichever you have. Let's start making the flower.
  • 28:10: You will need 8 squares of each color Treat the endings of the ribbons so they wouldn't start breaking apart Time for the petals now. You will need scissors and glue, either a glue gun or instant glue. And also tweezers.
  • 28:44: Start collecting the flowers Fold in half fixate using a candle Fold in half one more time fixate again This is our petal, prepared and ready to use See how you prefer whether you want the colored petals on the inside or on the outside
  • 29:16: Mine are going to be on the outside. We have 2 pieces ready. Put the triangles on top of each other with the back one little bit more up so it can be seen One more time fold in half
  • 29:47: This is how the petal looks like Fixate... cut the extra and fixate using a candle. squeeze Might be hot so be careful Now cut this extra piece since it's unnecessary
  • 30:22: Fixate as well... Do the same with the rest (7) squares. Once all petals are done start collecting the flower.
  • 30:55: When you collect the flower, if you need one more petal like me, simply cut more squares from the ribbons
  • 31:35: I made one more petal Now glue it to the rest of the flower. The flower is ready.
  • 32:08: Now make the leafs. Cut 4-5 pieces each approx. 4 cm (1.57 inch) in length Fold the piece in half This is how your leaf should look like
  • 32:51: In order not to throw away the leftovers bring them together with their face sides facing each other and fixate the longest part using a candle or a lighter. This is the leaf.
  • 33:28: Now fold the endings towards the middle. A small leaf...
  • 34:02: Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the leafs. When all the leafs and petals are ready we start gluing Glue the leafs in between the petals The leafs have been glued. Now we need to glue the middle.
  • 34:49: Let's first glue the flower to the bunny's ear. You can of course try to sew it, but after gluing the petals together it becomes pretty much impossible to pierce the needle through, so my advice is to simply glue it. Choose the position so it would look beautiful
  • 35:20: The flower has been glued. Now you can glue the middle. Here's our bunny!
  • 35:53: Thank you everyone for watching! If you like my videos then like them :) I will view this as your thank you. Until next time! Bye!!! :)
