I LOVE your pictures!  The bunny is so cute!

Okay, so since you asked for feedback, this was the only part I had an issue with:

"Now use Round Heel shaping to get the back of Mr Bunny's head:
P 5, p2tog, p1, turn work
Sl 1, k 3, k2tog, k1, turn work
Sl 1, p 4, p2tog

Now, you'll need to pick up stitches along the side of the flap we knit for the back of Mr. Bunny's head (these are the stitches you slipped at the beginning of each row).
Pick up and knit 8 sts with the needle holding the sts you just shaped. This is needle 1."

No matter how I looked at it, if I ended on the Sl1-p4-p2tog as in the final step before joining the flap, I would have had to purl to pick up the stitches and continue around.  I thought it was me being a doofus, so I looked up several heel shaping tutorials, and one hit on the head what I kinda knew: to start on the joining, you have to have just finished a knit row at the top of the flap.

So essentially, I just turned around after the purl row on the flap and stitched knits one more time, and then continued with the instructions as you listed them.

My only issue I am left with now are the holes at the corners where I joined the flap.  I am sure some sock tutorial covers this, but for now I think I will just stitch it up with some spare yarn and call it good.  But if you have any suggestions on that, I am open to them.

Thanks for this! I will post pics when I am done with him. I was inspired by the rotund "oops" Mr. Bunny earlier in the thread, and am opting to make a very round Mr. Bunny. Wish me luck in finishing!
