Creator Challenge #1: Some-BUNNY To Love [RESULTS!]

Last month, I hosted my very first Creator Challenge!  Participants followed instructions for the "Some-BUNNY To Love" pattern, and added their own finishing touches to make their bunnies creative and unique!

I am so excited to show you all of the different bunnies that were lovingly made by crocheters from around the world!  Please take a look!


For this very first Creator Challenge, I have decided to announce TWO winners instead of one!  Please give your congrats to the following crocheters and their amazing pieces!

Both crocheters did an outstanding job creating and putting finishing touches on their bunnies!  I was amazed to see @thecozychipmunk's addition of the Easter egg backpack, which is such a creative way to show some Easter spirit!  I also adore @crochettee's sweet bunny and the many outfits that she made for her, including a ball gown, dress, and shawl!

Input from the Creators

Here are some input I received from my fellow Creators about this event.

Did you enjoy this Creator Challenge?

  • I enjoy it very much! It is amazing to see all those creations!
  • I like the pattern and to create a small bunny.
  • Yes because I am new to crochet so I learned doing it.
  • Yes. It was fun, quick and my first time doing the icord!
  • I thought it was a great idea! I loved how the base pattern was given out but we were also given the freedom with regards to colours and accessories.
  • You know I did! :D. I thought it was a great collaborative activity that gave people the chance to connect. I loved how it was set up, the pattern was easy to follow (and didn't take a long time to make so one could do several if they wanted). I thought the pattern was great and tied in nicely with Easter coming up. I also liked that you had clear guidelines and that there was so much room for personal expression and creativity. The bunnies are also my new favourite spring decorations in my house!
  • No... The pattern was never sent. Couldn't do :(
  • I wish I had more time to complete the challenge. I was just too busy to get it done in time.
  • I really enjoyed this challenge
  • Yes. I liked being encouraged to embellish it.

  • Yes indeed. I crocheted 3 different ones
  • Yes, it was fun to start with a basic pattern and put your own spin on it.

  • I dont miss anything.
  • I'm not sure
  • I think this one was perfect. No improvements necessary!
