Stitch your pieces together and fill with wadding. Use the picture to arrange the face pieces.

Make 2 inner ears with your grey felt before you stitch them in place cut two pieces of card the same as your inner ear and place them inside between the outer and inner ear.

Stitch them into place and you can now bend them if you wish.

That’s it finished. Here is the bunny in its natural surroundings.
