My Peeps

As promised, I have a free pattern for you all today. I made this pattern for my shop last year and had posted a few sets when I got a notice from Etsy. The peeps at Peeps were putting the kabash on my marshmallow bunnies. Apparently they looked a little too much like the real thing or something and the Peeps peeps were not having it.
I was pretty sad since I was quite proud of them (I drew the pattern freehand) and I had a lot of interest in them. Sad for me, but good for you, however. I'm offering my pattern to anyone who would like to have it. Only thing, it has to be for your personal use only (no selling them! Unless you want the Peeps peeps to come after you).
They are cute and fun and a great alternative to buying your kids a lot of candy around Easter time. I know I am so guilty of this, pretty much for every holiday. My boys are still eating Valentine's Day candy. Maybe I should help them out.

Included with the pattern will be instructions on how to make them, as well as materials needed. You will need to know how to do the blanket stitch and tie a french knot. It is an easy craft and a cheap one as well. You should be able to make a set of three bunnies with one sheet of felt (.35) and one skein of embroidery floss (.37).
Go ahead, make your kiddos (or just yourself) something hand made. Aren't they cute (especially for being under a dollar to make)? Plus they will last year after year and can be a Easter/Spring decoration once your kids are too old to play with them. Who's up for it? Let me know in the comments section if you'd like a pattern and I will mail it out to you. Have a great weekend!
