March seasonal chubby bunnies have arrived!

Celebrate with these cute bunnies who are decked out in their finest, and cutest, costumes! Not only are we celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this month, we’re also celebrating A Menagerie of Stitches turning 8 and we’re commemorating with a unicorn, which was my very first pattern I ever released! To top it all off, March is National Crochet Month so we, of course, have to celebrate with a ball of yarn!!

While each month of these chubby bunnies definitely has a theme, I try to make sure I include things that don’t necessarily have to be for a specific holiday. I love being able to keep things on display year round and things like a unicorn or yarn ball bunny definitely fit that bill!

This month our bunnies are- A Leprechaun, Pot of Gold, Unicorn, Ball of Yarn
