Free pattern: Sayo and Nara-chan Easter Macaron Bunnies

26 Mar

Sayo and Nara-chan have always dreamt of seeing more of the world.

This year, they’ll finally get a chance to do so.

Nara-chan’s fantabulous macaron-baking skills have won them two free tickets to Perth, and just in time too for Easter.

Well, the bunnies are in fact afraid of kangaroos.

9)      Tie the scarf around the neck of the bunny.

10)   Add a dab of blush onto the bunny’s cheeks and you’ll have…Sayo-chan!

And since Sayo-chan has a penchant for acting odd without his other half, please make sure you repeat the entire process above to give life to Nara-chan.

    Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for novice blog
    writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
