Flannel Friday: Bunnies!

When Andrea first posted her Flannel Friday contribution of these amazing bunny fingerpuppets from Purl Bee, I was IN LOVE. But…at the time, I was not a confident sewer and I didn’t feel like I could handle it. Fast-forward almost a year and…

BUNNIES! The cutting took me about an hour, and the sewing averaged out to be a half-hour per bunny! And yes, I did the full Martha and made my own little yarn pompoms. I made these for Easter storytime (that didn’t happen), but will also be using it at spring storytime, and if I do a bunny storytime again.

I will be using this rhyme with them:

“Five Little Bunnies”
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
Five little bunnies went out to play.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
One little bunny hopped away.
(No more bunnies are playing today,
I hope they come back another day.)
