In preparation for Easter, I made an appliqued bunny granny square!
This super cute appliqued bunny granny square can be whipped up really quick and doesn’t use very much yarn.
There’s some assembly required but I think it’s worth it. It would be really cute in an Easter-themed blanket or you could put the applique on just about anything you want to make more adorable!

Those are all the pieces for the bunny rabbit. I found the patterns for the flower and leaf on two other blogs, you can find them here:
Flower pattern (Butter)
Leaf pattern (Olive)
For the stem, I used Olive and chained until it was the length I wanted and slip stitched back down the chain.
Attach the stem and leaf to the back of the flower.
Cute Bunny Rabbit Granny Square Assembly:
First I did the face.
Sew the eyes on where you want them, I whip stitched around the edges with matching yarn so they were flatter on the face. Then I used some white yarn and added the highlight on the eyes. After that I did the nose. Thread some pink yarn on your needle and first I outlined the triangle shape and then filled it in.
Next, attach the ears to the back of the head.
Sew the head to the body.
Sew the arms onto the sides of the body and try to make them so they come together in the middle but don’t sew down the hands yet.
Sew the footpads onto the feet, then attach the feet on the bottom of the bunny’s body.
Sew the flower stem onto the middle of the body and then sew the arms over the stem so it looks like the bunny is holding the flower. I also sewed the flower to the ear to make it more secure.
At this point you have your applique done, you can attach it to whatever you like.
If you’re going to attach it to the granny square, click here for the pattern I used to make the square. (I used I Love This Yarn! in Ivory)
Now just sew your bunny applique in the middle of the square and your done!
