Donna’s Dozen: Hopping Spring and Easter Patterns

I think it is safe to say that we have had one dreadful Winter so I thought I would bring you hope for better days with some Spring and Easter designs. Even if it is still cold and a little dreary where you live I hope these wonderful designs will make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Speaking of Fuzzy, let’s take a look at some adorable Easter bunnies.
First we have a Bunny Pillow every child will love. You could make it in Pink for your little girl or mix it up with blue for your little boy.

I love to decorate this time of year so I could not have a dozen Springy designs without bringing in a little home décor. You can change the look of your front door with this Easter Bunny Wreath. We also have a wreath for every month on our website if you like to decorate all year long.
