Easter fridgies, bunny and chick.

Posted on: March 31, 2014

I thought it would be cute to make Easter fridge magnets, so I spent part of my time yesterday making a couple of fridgies: a bunny, and a little chick. Since they turned out really cute, I am sharing the patterns here, which are really easy and quick to make. You can turn them into brooch as well, you will only need a few materials listed below.

What you need:
Some white yarn, and yellow yarn
G/4mm hook
yarn needle
Glue gun
Wiggle eyes
Pink, and orange felt
Pink Ribbon
Magnet, or pin
(you can find magnets at any craft store. The one I bought comes in bands that you can cut with scissors)

Abbreviations:
rnd = round
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch

WABBIT FRIDGIE PATTERN:
Bunny Fridgie Pattern
With white yarn, start with a magic ring
Rnd 1: 6 sc in center of the ring (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around, sl st in next st to close the round (12)
Rnd 3: ch. 6, dc in 3rd st. from hook, 2 dc, 1 hdc, sc in same st in round (stitch you started the chain with), 3 sl. st. then ch. 6, dc on 3rd st. from hook, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, sl st in same st in round.
– Fasten off, weave in loose ends in back side.

– Cut a little circle, or oblong shape in some pink felt, and glue in the center for the nose. Glue wiggle eyes, then a little pink ribbon on one of the ears. Cut a piece of magnet, and glue it in the back (magnets are pre-glued but I like to add some with my glue gun to make sure it won’t come off)
