I love this adorable bunny with it’s long floppy ears! I have lovingly named her Flopsy after the character in Beatrix Potter’s classic The Tale of Peter Rabbit. I have a feeling that Flopsy is going to stay around long after Easter has passed. And of course every bunny needs a carrot!

Using a yarn needle and a length of pink lightweight yarn, embroider an inverted triangular nose between the 2 3hdc-cl from Round 10. Switching to the gray/black yarn, embroider a thin mouth coming down from the nose and under each 3hdc-cl. Attach safety eyes at outer edges of each 3 hdc-cl between Rounds 8 and 9. Use photo below as a guide. Stuff head with fiberfill stuffing taking care not to overfill.
