I drew a template. This was my 3rd template, and I can say for certain, the ears work best when they 'V' away from each other. Otherwise, the ears want to fold toward each other, as seen below.
Also, a little more distance between the ears will look better once we turn them right side out.
I'm essentially very lazy, so, I just folded a swath of fabric in half before tracing my template. That way, I don't have to sew around the tips of the ears. Then, I just kept tracing.
Time to sew and then cut (leave his butt open for tha' stuffin'):
Then flip (I find a pair of blunt tweezers particularly helpful for pushing and pulling):
I like to iron the ears (but it's not necessary). I also like to sew them shut, but toward the end of 30 bunnies (who'm I kiddin', after like 5 bunnies) I cut this very time intensive process.
Next, I use embroidery thread and the french knot technique to create eyes, nose, and tail.
I add a little fleece pocket:
|It's the only thing warm and fuzzy about me.|
|Now this just looks gross.|
|Uh... I feel violated here.|
