FREE Sakura The Bunny Crochet Pattern

Updated: Aug 17, 2021



Spring is probably my favorite season because of all the cherry blossoms trees that bloom during that season. I absolutely love the light pink color that comes out of most cherry blossom trees, so to pay homage to the pretty trees, I decided to create "Sakura The Bunny".


Because "sakura" in Japanese means cherry blossom, I thought it would be the perfect name for this adorable, pink bunny! If you'd like to make this cutie, keep on scrolling! OR you could use the premium, PDF file of this pattern here instead!
