  • Pull yarn ends tight and tie in knot to hole head and ears in place
  • If you want to adjust the fold in the ears, do so and sew through the bottoms of the ears a few times to hold them as you want them.

  • Sew the back seam shut so there is just a round opening at the end.

  • Sew a running stitch around the opening.
  • Fill body half way with stuffing.
  • Finish filling with Poly Pellets so the Bunny will stay how you sit it.
  • Pull the end of the yarn to close the running stitch around the end.
  • Stitch the gathered section so it doesn’t come undone.
  • Weave in all ends.
  • Add a pom pom for a tail.
  • Stitch on a face if you’d like.
