It's not too late for Easter making!

Did you see my cute bunny disguised as a zebra last week?  I decided that, because it is Easter this weekend, I should make another bunny in disguise.  This time I wanted to make a rainbow bunny.

The design is really simple and just uses scraps of double knit or worsted weight wool.  It took me less than an hour to make it.
