Bunny Security Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Apr 20



Happy Tuesday and welcome back to my blog!


Today I'm gonna share with you all a new mini safety blanket design!

My Sheep and Sloth versions are still going strong, so I decided to work a new version that I hope you'll love as much as you liked the first ones.


A cute little bunny is the new addition to the series...just in time for the Spring season, right?
