1 diaper from color of choice

1 carrot, 2 carrot strips from orange felt

1 set of carrot tops from green felt

Stitch down nose and inner ears to one of the sides of both felt bunny ears and nose to body.  Stitch face details onto bunny. Use french knots for eyes.

Sew ear fronts to backs with an overcast stitch. Leave the bottom open to stuff.

Stitch the ears to the body with a running stitch and then continue to overcast stitch around the outside stuffing each section as you go.

To make felt diaper

 Sew tail to the center back. Diaper can be folded on or glued if you don’t plan on changing any bunny diapers.

To make carrot bottle

Stack two strips on top of each other and sew down along the tip.

Fold so rounded edge is on top.

Overcast stitch along side. Sew small gathering stitches stitch loosely along top of carrot.

Stuff lightly. Stack carrot tops together stitch through base and pull to close up top.

Run the needle through the top and carrot a few times to secure.

Sew level stitches along the carrot body to give it a few dents. Knot. Fluff out carrot top.
