Bunny Easter Basket
Designed by: Anna Szydlak – LoomAnek
When I think of Easter I remember my childhood and fluffy stuffed bunnies and Easter baskets full of colorful eggs. Anna’s creative hats and animals inspired me to ask her to create an Easter pattern for the GoodKnitKisses blog. Anna was thrilled for the chance and she designed the perfect Bunny Easter Basket. Your little one will have so much fun filling the basket with colored eggs on an Easter egg hunt. What’s better than a basket that doubles as a cuddly friend? Or you might use the Bunny Easter Basket yourself as a table centerpiece or gift filled with chocolate treats or a small plant.
