Now, before you all think I'm totally insane, I want you to know that a friend commissioned me to make this little guy.  I like the results, but I in no way endorse hurting actual fuzzy bunnies.  Or unfuzzy ones.  Or any critters (or people) for that matter.

So, I started with a cute little beanie bunny my friend gave me. 

He asked me to make it look like the bunny's head had been taken off, and it was all gory inside.  I wanted to make it look somewhat anatomically correct, so there is a spinal column, esophagus, and trachea, along with muscles. 

The toughest part was finding the stitching along the neck, since the material was so thick and fuzzy.  I removed all the stitching, aside from that on the back part of the toy, so it had a sort of "flip-top" head.

I made a tight tube with burgundy upholstery fabric, and wrapped in off-white felt to make a spinal cord with marrow.  Then, I made a brown felt trachea and a pink felt esophagus.  I finished the latter two tubes with a whip stitch in red thread. 



For the muscles, I stitched the three tubes together, and then I stitched red felt to the tubes.  I gathered and folded the red felt into a circle around the tubes, to fit in the neck holes.  I stitched the folds in place with red thread.

After making two of these muscles-and-tube pieces, I inserted them into the bunny, stitching them in place with white thread.



Sorry I don't have any procedural photos, but let me know if you have any questions. 

Thanks for checking out my post.

Thanks!
It would be fun to put a little squirter inside for realistic spurts of gore and so forth, but perhaps that's too gross.

I love it!  You did a marvellous job on both the anatomy and the opening itself.  I'm not crazy about the squirter idea - too hard to maintain - bit this is fabulous all on its own!  It is a bit creepy but lots of folks like creepy.  Several months back I turned a couple of stuffies inside out and restuffed them - my kids now have "deadie bears" and they just love them.

Oh man, I clicked on to this thread because of the cute little bunny in the 'recent posts' bit of the homepage. Wasn't quite what I was expecting  :-(
Impressive detail, though, and you are clearly a good friend
