Buzz Lightyear Bunny Crochet Pattern

When Toy Story first came out, I remember my favourite character was Woody, but I think it was mostly because I felt sorry for him and how Andy put him aside when Buzz Lightyear came along. As more Toy Story movies came out, I began to like Buzz Lightyear more and has now become one of my favourite Disney characters.

Back in elementary school, we had a Christmas concert, and my brother's class was to be the Toy Shop in the play. When my mom asked my brother what he wanted to be, he said he wanted to be Buzz Lightyear. So, my mom and I decided to create a Buzz Lightyear costume for him out of cardboard. Even to this day, it is still one of the most amazing DIY costumes that we've ever made. The parts were movable - the wings even expand out! If I ever find that costume or photographs of it, I will be sure to share it.

Buzz Lightyear remains to be one of our favourite Disney characters. My brother has this Buzz Lightyear hoodie that he got from Disneyland a few years ago and wears it quite often. So for his birthday a few years ago, I decided to crochet him a bunny wearing a Buzz Lightyear hoodie. This has become one of my favourite creations, so after giving him my very first Buzz Lightyear bunny, I decided to make one for myself too.
