Welcoming Purl Soho Bunny Finger Puppet Kits! 

Last year Molly created an adorable set of Bunny Finger Puppets with 100% wool felt in a cheery Spring palette. Ever since then, this blithe little group has been hanging out in the window of Purl Soho greeting customers with their cute whiskers and soft tails.  They've been one of our most popular projects to date. Children go just nuts over them!

This year we decided to make the project into our Bunny Finger Puppet Kit so you can make your own borough of bunnies in a snap. The kit includes everything to make twelve bunnies, including the pattern, felt, embroidery thread and yarn for the tail. This is a super quick and simple project.  You could make all of them in a weekend with time to spare.

These little guys would be so sweet nestled in an Easter basket next to the chocolate eggs and Peeps. If you'd like to make your own you can find your very own Bunny Finger Puppet Kit right here.

Happy Easter!-- The Purl Bee

I made more than 40 of these for a Chinese New Year celebration earlier this year (this is the year of the rabbit). Children and adults alike loved them! Thanks for the pattern.

Perfect little bunnies. I can't wait to make them. I love your blog and am always checking out the new (and old) patterns. Thanks for being here!

What kind of embroidery floss was used? It looks like it is just one strand. I have made one bunny and am at the embrodering point. Thanks.

Hi Joan-

If you're using standard embroidery floss it's 2 strands. Thank you for the comment.
