Dress Me Bunny



Dress Me Bunny is a modified version of my Valentine Bear. I decided to  put it all in one pattern for you then you can make the bunny without having to flip back and forth between patterns. There is a full video tutorial that follows along with this written pattern.

Here are the pattern links now available for the bunny, scroll down this page for the
bunny pattern itself and look for the green print friendly at the bottom of the pattern

Read me ~> How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Supplies:
Red Heart Comfort yarn  any color
4.0 mm or 4.5 mm hook *use a smaller hook if you  see gaps in your stitches
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
100% polyester stuffing
you can use buttons, a french knot or paint eyes on. I used 10mm safety eyes that I glued in place and also buttons.optional* pipe cleaners for the ears and arms

Abbreviations:

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
ch1 = chain one
sl st = slip stitch

2tog = crochet 2 stitches together

f/o = finish off

The head and body are worked in one piece. If you plan to use safety eyes they are placed in between the 12th and 13th row with 7 visible stitches between them. The top of the muzzle is placed on the 12th or 13th row, whichever looks best to you. Whip stitch a nose in place before sewing the muzzle to the head.

Assembly: Refer to this part of the video where I show how to sew it all together

1) Sew the legs flat to the underside of the body.

2) The arms are sewn under the head, I sewed mine one ring down from the top of the neck. Add a stitch or 2 from under the arm to the body to tack the arm down if they are flaring out too far.

3) Whip stitch a nose in place before sewing the muzzle to the head.
Stuff the muzzle and use lots of pins to hold it in place before sewing.
The top of the muzzle is placed on the 13th row.
4) Sit the bunny down and see where the tail will look best then pin it on, use lots of pins then sew it in place unless you made a pom pom tail. Sew the pom pom on as is shown in the video.
5) Pin the ears on top of the head and play around with placement before sewing them in place.

  3. I am having some problems attaching the legs. The body doesn't seem large enough for them. There isn't enough room. Anyway, I'm thinking I need to redo the legs so they are narrower, maybe 12 stitches around instead of 14. No matter how I try I cannot get them to fit side by side (even with some overlap), without them hanging over the sides. I hope that makes sense.

    I used a 4.0 mm hook and worsted weight acrylic yarn but I'm thinking I crocheted the body too tightly. My stitches look tighter than yours. And therefore the body is too narrow to accommodate the legs side by side.

    Any thoughts?

    1. I wonder if you under stuffed the body? If you brought the legs down to 12st that really won't make much of a difference. I do show how to stuff the body in the video. Try undoing the finishing knot on the body and stuffing it some more. I hope that helps and keep me posted.

      Delete
    2. I may have under stuffed the body. The head is firmer than the body for sure. But no matter. I tried to see if I could undo the body and stuff it more but it was proving to be too challenging. I was afraid I'd mess it up altogether. Redoing legs is one thing but redoing the head and body is another! LOL

      I ripped out the legs back to row 11, further decreased to 12 st. for row 12 and continued with the pattern. This time I was able to attach both legs easily. So I salvaged the bunny and she is quite happy about it. She didn't look forward to more intensive surgery and neither did I.

      Thank you so much for your lovely patterns! I appreciate you.

    3. I find that comical and sympathize with the surgery part lol I just started on row 16 lol applaud urself if you get any amigurumi done ,, I love how she step by step this lol surgery think we all need a bit of spa surgery sorry lol

  4. Hi :-)
    I just now make a bunny and I see 2 mistakes in legs pattern -
    in 9 row it should be: (1sc then 2tog x 6) 1sc in next 11st (18)
    and in 11 row it should be: (1sc then 2tog x 4) 1sc in next 9st (14)

    My English isn't good but I wish that I help :-)

    Thanks for your work and yours patterns!!

    1. thank you but the leg pattern is correct as I wrote it.

      when you start row 9 you have 24st already so (1sc then 2tog repeated 6times uses 18st ) and that leaves 6st in the row. 24 -18 = 6

      If you did it your way (1sc then 2tog repeated 6times uses 18st) and then add 11st you see it doesn't work because 24 -18=6 and not 24 -18=11

      I hope that helps you understand.

      Thank you and I'm glad you are enjoying the pattern :)

    2. Maybe krysia assuming the 2tog is repeated 6 time that why krysia was left with 11 st.. it suppose to do 1sc and 2tog 6time right? Then 1sc in next 6st..

    3. if you scroll up, just above the pattern itself I have sections called "Read Me" and in that section I explain how to read the rows.

  9. Hi Sharon, thank you so much for making these free patterns! They are so lovely! I just made the bunny, and although I wish I had safety eyes as these would look better I'm still really pleased with how he turned out. So cute! I've made him for a baby's first Easter. I was also going to make the the little dungarees for the bunny, but then I decided to make him a little uniform instead so that he's an Anzac Bunny, as baby's daddy is in the Australian Army. I'm so pleased with it I'm not sure I'll be able to part with him - haha!

  10. Good morning!
    I am making the bunny for the first time. I'm not sure if I am doing it right, but I thought I was use a 3.75mm hook because I couldn't find my 4mm hook, and I noticed that when I stuffed the bunny, I could see the stuffing through the holes especially in the body area of the bunny and in the feet. Am I doing something wrong? Your pictures look so fabulous, and to me it looks like you can't see the stuffing through the holes at all. Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I noticed the same, specifically where you have to crochet two stitches together on the neck area. I'm also using a 3.75mm hook and I'm not sure I could get those stitches any tighter!

      Delete
    2. Cindy are you using medium worsted weight yarn? If so, I'm not sure what to suggest other than tighten up your stitches.
      And for the feet and neck area you might see gaps in the stitches even with tightening stitches or using a smaller hook. You can eliminate most if not all of this gap by tightening up the stitches. Using the 2tog method while tightening stitches works very well for me. But there is also one other way to decrease called the Invisible Decrease. I do not use this method. I personally don't like it but it's not the method's fault it's mine, lol I tried it once and it felt awkward and I didn't like the look but other people have said that it needs practice and once mastered it's a great method. So I will leave the option to you. You can decrease the way I do and just tighten up those stitches or try the inv dec. I do not have my own tutorial for the inv dec but you can search the inv dec on youtube or try this tutorial by June Gilbank. I hope that helps!

    3. Thank you for the advice!! I am working on another bunny right now, so I will definitely try tightening up my stitches more. I am using the medium worsted weight yarn, so hopefully tightening will work. I just LOVE all of your videos and patterns!!

    4. Hi Cindy, Lena, and Sharon, I used 2.5 mm hook for Deborah Norville Everyday soft worsted yarn and the stuffing does not show except for the head where I did not crochet tighter.

    Good afternoon!!
    I noticed that your bunny is measuring about 15 inches long. My bunny is measuring about 11 inches long. Is there something that I may not be doing correctly? I would like for my bunny to be 15-16 inches long. Thank you!

    1. it could be your yarn and hook size. This pattern calls for Red Heart Comfort yarn in white and whatever the hook size I used, I can't remember off hand but scroll up and look in the supplies list. It's all there.

      A white yarn from a different brand will give you a different gauge even if they are the same weight.

      I hope that helps!
      And just in case, make sure you are on the right pattern. There's been some that write me saying their bunny is smaller but they were using my Little Bigfoot Bunny pattern not realizing they are 2 different patterns.

  19. I happened across your videos about three days ago, while looking for a crochet tutorial on something else and I fell in LOVE with the animals! I'd always wanted to try amigurumi, but it seems way too difficult, but after watching a few minutes of your bear tutorial, I gave it a whirl and loved it!

    I've already made one of your teddy bears and one of these bunnies (complete with dress, shoes, and a little bow for her ear) and I'm already half way through with my second bunny. These are too stinking cute and your tutorials are fantastic! Thank you so much!

  20. Thank you so very much for your patterns! My mom tried to teach me to crochet when I was around 9 or 10 and it wouldn't stick. I retaught myself not too long ago and have found myself wanting more and more challenges and variety. I love making little blankets and baby dresses. I have looked at all the little stuffies and envied them all but it wasn't until your bunny did I decide to actually try it. I can't work with those tiny crochet hooks and crochet thread, it's just too hard for me to work with. But working with medium weight yarn and regular hooks, I am greatly enjoying the process. My body is coming out a lot smaller than the head, but I've read the comments saying stuff it more, so I'm going to go home this afternoon and stuff the heck-a-doodles out of it and see if that helps. Thank you so much for offering such beautiful and easy to understand patterns. Your blog has become my new favorite website! I will be making all kinds of little critters in the near future! Adorable stuff!

  27. Hi Sharon...I recently re-started crocheting after ignoring it for approx 35 years. I was looking on Pinterest a few weeks ago and came across your Dress Me Bunny pattern, which I thought was adorable. I knew it would be perfect for my one year old grandniece. I had never even heard of the term amigurumi before, but decided to give it a go and purchased safety eyes and some fiberfill. I started to crochet it while watching your YouTube video tutorial.

    You truly are a talent. Your pattern and tutorial were very easy to follow and your voice is very soothing to me. All of the tips and little tricks that you provide are the icing on the cake. Last night I finished the bunny except for sewing on the pom-pom tail. I don't have any of the fabric glue you suggested for securing it, but Amazon will have it to me within 2 days. I am going to start on the Bunny's Spring Time Dress and shoes next, followed by the Pig.

    I am the type of person who doesn't leave comments (good or bad) online, but I've made an exception tonight because I feel that what you provide to the crocheting community (and to the people in their lives via their finished products) is truly exceptional. Please accept my small donation in appreciation for your hard work.

    Sincerely...Carole from California

Your're really my inspiration in amigurumi,, I know it's hard and time consuming to make the videos and written tutorial but I'm really thankful that you let us (still beginners) watch and read your tutorials,, because other amigurumi crafters keep them for sale, and it kinda make me sad,, I'm not against them though but I think it's kinda selfish,, well anyway,, I'M REALLY THANKFUL TO YOU, and I hope you're healthy always and keep amigurumi! ♥ Love you!

  32. Hello, thanks so much for your amazing patterns and videos! I'm learning to make amigurumi for the first time with your help. I've made the Little Bigfoot Monkey so far, and now I'm looking at this as my next project to make for my baby nephew.

    I had one question though, in looking at yarn to buy I'm not always able to get the brand you suggest but can find affordable medium weight yarn elsewhere. The only problem is, I don't know how much I will need! If you would please let me know approximately how many ounces, yards, or grams I would need in yarn that would be a big help! Thanks again. =)

    1. I use jumbo rolls, the Red Heart Comfort yarn as listed in the supplies list and I don't measure out unless I think it would take more than a regular sized package people would buy. This bunny would take about the same amount that's in1 package of Red Heart Super Saver, so you have to do a google search and see the amount are for those packages or go to RedHeart.com and look there for those packages I've mentioned

  33. Ok, thank you! Wasn't sure if it used a whole package or not. =)

  35. Hi Sharon!! I love your patterns!! I wanted to know how to close up the back of the dress and the overalls if I were to make a boy and girl doll instead of bunnies. If this is possible. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete

    1. yes, the overalls would just need a few stitches to close the back and maybe add a snap closure just like I add on the dress, but it might not be needed. If it's a doll the overalls should slip on and off just fine with the back stitched closed.
      The dress will just need the closures as shown in the pattern but you won't have to worry about putting the closures around the tail.
      You could even sew on 4 closures instead of 3 since there'll be no tail sticking out, but make that decision once you have the doll made and you can wrap the dress around her and see if you need that many closures.
      Hope that helped :)

    1. you're welcome and thank you for the kind feedback, that means a lot :)

      Yes, just don't close up the legs, leave them open and stuff to the top. Sew them by whip stitching all around the open edge to the bottom of the body.

      Hope that helped

  38. Hey!

    I just meant to tell that I gave away plenty of bunnies and bears for Christmas and everyone was soooo excited and impressed, especially by the Dress Me Bunnies.
    I don't have a facebook account, so I hope it's okay to post links to pictures here, because I'd love to show what I did.

    I took the pattern for the elephant's head and made it larger because I thought a face with cheeks would be perfect for a bunny girl. Here's the result:

    http://i1178.photobucket.com/albums/x378/cassiopeia1610/Diverses/bunny1_zps0qk5rksf.jpg

    In another experiment I combined the elephant's head with the Little Teddy's body and the Little Bigfoot Bunny's ears and got this cute little guy:

    Thank you once again for all those great patterns! I still love doing them! ♥♥♥

  41. Thanks so much for these beautiful patterns. I was wondering if I could get your help on something. I'm donating hats and stuffed animals to an organization called beanies for buddies where you make a hat for a child and a hat for a stuffed animal to be given two children receiving chemo. I would like to make a beanie for the bunnies and bears, but I have not been able to figure out a pattern that would allow their ears to poke through. If you can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    1. yes, I have one I designed for a small bunny and mouse. It's probably smaller than what you need but you can see how it's done there. Hope it's helpful. Hat For A Bunny and Mouse

    2. I should add that I'm not a clothing designer at all and for a bigger hat there might be a better way but the way I did it worked well for this smaller one.

  42. Hi Sharon, write the Brazil! Amigurumi loved doing and I learned from you to crochet! I have some questions and the first is to know why my dress bulrush was smaller than yours? I compared your wool with mine and did not seem different! then such as adjusting the size of the clothes? Thanks Flávia

    1. did you you the same type of wool and same size of hook to make the bunny?

      I can not sure for certain why your dress came smaller, it should fit the bunny.

  46. Hi Sharon,

    Just wanted to say a big thank you.. 4 weeks ago I was introduced to Amigurumi.. I saw a pattern for a dinosaur in a UK magazine and thought ok I'll try doing that first.. Then I stumbled on your Youtube tutorial and I'm now onto my 5th Dress Me Bunny.. They are Brillant.. and I've introduced another friend to your blog too..

  47. Hi Sharon, just wanted to know if I can use Red Heart Super Saver yarn instead of the Red Heart Comfort. Thanks!

  48. I think this is one of the most impressive video tutorials I have seen. You are AMAZING. You really "teach" us how, you go slowly, you speak clearly, your video is nice and smooth. I just love everything about it, can you tell?, and I'm only on my first ear.

  52. Love the pattern! I've made big bunnies and little bunnies of all colors. I used crochet thread to make the little ones. My grand daughters love them. Im not great at sewing the body parts evenly so I decided to crochet all the parts on as I crocheted the main body. It worked out great. Of course the ears hang down but they look cute that way too. Thanks for the cute pattern! Love your videos too!

  53. I ran across your site quite by accident. I had never made an amigurumi before but thought I would try with the Bunny, mainly because you had a tutorial. Your tutorial was fantastic. I loved the step-by-step video. And your instructions were so easy to follow. I made two bunnies for my granddaughters and bear for my grandson, however, I wish the bear was bigger and I couldn't find any instructions for a vest or clothes, so I added a ribbon around his neck to dress him up.

    1. no, definitely not a whole skein of Comfort yarn. I'd say less or about the amount that's in a Red Heart Super Saver package. I couldn't tell you in grams, I listed how much is in the 2 different packages here on my FAQ page here see question #3

  62. Hi, I'm from Brazil, and I'm a member of a group in a facebook about amigurumi, it's a close group, and I did this bunny using your pattern. I post a picture of my little bunny there and everybody ask to the pattern and I send the adress of your website. But some people there don't speak english.
