rw 10: sc in next 2 sc, sl st, fasten off, weave in ends.

Finishing:

Stuff head and body before closing. Do not stuff arms or legs.  Sew arms, legs, ears, and head onto body.

For the face i cut out a small rounded triangle shape and embroidered the nose and mouth on. oh, and the whiskers. I glued on the google eyes.

For the head, I sewed it on so that the starting 6 sc in ring was pointing up some so it would look like the bunny was looking up at me!!

Have fun!!!
