It was Easter (April 2018), my daughter Anna was about to go to her very first egg-hunts event and I was just overly excited about that. My husband and I tried to find a lovely bag for her but could not find one, so I made this little bag quickly the night before event. I could say this is my very first crochet design, made fresh on the hook, before my first amigurumi design (at that time, I even didn’t even know how to write a pattern yet). As a crochet beginner, I was so happy and proud of it!
Time flies, my little Anna is growing up and so am I. This bunny bag became her favorite toy. She brings it everywhere to collect flowers, leaves, and small rocks (her most favorite thing ever!). About me, I also learned many new things in crochet: designing, selling my patterns, and now doing my own website and writing my very first blog! This is the perfect time to write down the pattern of this very first design, and I’d love to share it free as a gift to say thank you to all of you, my fellow crocheters.

Let’s celebrate my very first blog with this lovely bunny bag, which I believe this is a perfect item for every little girl. 

I hope you will enjoy crocheting this bunny bag as much as I enjoyed creating it.

It will be my big pleasure to see your finished product with hashtag #Khuccay #Lespetitesmainsdekhuccay, or add a Ravelry project. And do not forget that you can always write me a message for any questions!

Happy crocheting ♥
