A little fun crochet

I have been creating some tiny finger puppets to pop in to some Operation Christmas Child boxes.  If you don't know about Operation Christmas Child, I urge you to follow the link and have a little look-see at what it's all about.

I love making something when the making is for the pure enjoyment of making it, and these  little fellows fell right in to that category.  Just a spur of the moment decision to make something little and bright and fun.

You can find a link to the pattern on Ravelry here, or the free pattern itself on Lion Brand's website here.  It is written using yarn and is designed as an egg cosy, but I completed mine using Anchor Pearl Cotton #8, which resulted in a much smaller bunny which just fits over the finger tip for a mini puppet.

Thanks for visiting
