Friday Favorites No. 325

The weather has finally taken a turn for the better here. A little less rain, a little more sun. I have my front door open as I write this, for the first time since last fall. Isn't it amazing what a little sunshine can do for your mood? Bring on more!

This crocheted blanket from Dusty Geest on Ravelry looks cozy and is perfect for the spring season. Hey, not everyone wants a mermaid tail!

I love how this sign from Eighteen 25 has a modern look, while still keeping bright spring colors. 

I've seen lots of versions of drawstring bunny bags lately. I mean, those ears just make it perfect, right? Check out this one from We All Sew.

I'll admit, depending on the day I'm pretty easily amused, but these cookies from The Decorated Cookie cracked me up. Ba-dum-bum.

If you're making a stuffed animal for an Easter basket, there's no rule that says it has to be a bunny, or a chick, or a lamb. While there are plenty of sweet patterns for those out there, I vote for this dragon from Sweetbriar Sisters at Fabric.com.

You can find these, and my previous Friday Favorites, on my Crafty Staci’s Friday Favorites Pinterest board!

Is is just me, or are there a ridiculous number of really cute Easter crafts and recipes out there this year?  I’m going to blame Pinterest for that one, because it seems like ever since it rolled into town there’s just more of everything.  Especially food.  Seriously, can we all agree to stop posting delicious-looking things late in the evening when I’m trying not to snack?

Almost anything that involves coconut is a-ok with me, but these Easter Bunny Tail Truffles from Pizzazzerie are cute to boot.

I kinda love how The Frugal Girls made Peeps seem almost healthy with these Peep Fruit Kabobs.

Okay, everybody look at this Lop Eared Sock Bunny from Craft Passion, then say it with me – Awwww!

I can’t even imagine how long it must have taken to make this Candy-Coated Easter Bunny Cake from Party Pinching, but it’s adorable.  I wouldn’t let anyone cut it.  Ever.

This Peeps Garland from Pillows A La Mode makes me think of paper dolls.  Or paper bunnies, in this case.

Love me some Nutter Butters.  That’s why you’ll find none of them in my house.  However, after seeing these cute Nutter Bunnies from Plain Chicken, I might have to go out and buy some.

These Hungry Bunnies from Lil Blue Boo look like they were modeled after a well-loved stuffed animal.

Sometimes it’s just the simplest thing that spices up a table, like these Bunny Tail Drink Stirrers from Pizzazzerie.

Bunnies don’t always have to be sweet.  Check out these Easter Bunny Stuffed Eggs from My Fudo.

But sometimes they need to be completely made of sugar, like these sweet Easter Bunny Marshmallow Pops from Dollhouse Bake Shoppe.

I’ve been working to get my Etsy shop ready for spring this week by adding some new fabrics and a bunch of new ready-to-ship items.  I decided there were some things that need to find homes, so starting today…

Easter is really close to the end of the month this year, making it much easier for me to stay on top of it.  Since I can see it on the calendar for over three weeks, it isn’t going to sneak up on me.  Not like last year.

To kick things off, today I want to share with you some cute bunny crafts I’ve found recently.  I’d just like to point out, not a single one of these bunnies is made from chocolate.  Or felt.

I love paper chains and this is a great technique from 4 Crazy Kings.

These Marshmallow Bunnies from Cute Food for Kids would be fun to make out of some of those giant marshmallows that have been in the grocery store lately.

Country Living explains how to make these Play It By Ear headbands using bias tape.

So, maybe you want to cut down on the kids’ Easter candy consumption?  Busy Bee Kids Crafts has a healthier alternative– Fruit Bunnies.

These Bunny Sachets from Craft Passion would be a great addition to the Easter baskets.

I originally noticed Made by Joel because he shares my husband’s name.  He has tons of easy-to-make kids’ toys, like these Tumble Bunnies.

These Bunny Pancakes from Muffin Tin Mom are way too cute to eat.
