These adorable cashmere bunny softies were made by Betz White and I think they’re an awesome project for the kids’ Easter baskets! Betz used scraps from cashmere scarves to make these but you could use an old cashmere sweater from your closet or from Goodwill instead. Additionally, her tutorial shows how to make those fabulous needle felted hearts on the side of the bunnies, however you could always use applique hearts if you’re short on time or don’t have the needle felting tools.
