Pattern Description:

Scraps is a fun floppy bunny measuring 16 inches (40 1/2cm) long.
PLEASE NOTE
Scraps is ideal for small children as long as you substitute the bead eyes for embroidered ones, and omit the buttons.
As with all toys intended for very young children, please make sure limbs and ears are very securely attached as they make wonderful handles for swinging toys around with :o)

Scraps is a easy knit but does involve colour changes - although - there is no need to weave in all the little ends, tie the two colours together after each change in a double knot and the ends are used as part of the stuffing.
