Then, after cutting out all of my pieces, I embroidered bunny eyes and bunny noses onto the faces and followed the same steps as the doll tutorial suggests.

    They’re so cute – I want to make a bunch and line them up to look at. Mantle decor? Think the line-up would last long? Probably not…

      Thanks Stef! Funny you mentioned a mantle lineup- I had them up there for a little while during party prep. Well, sort of. My kids just kept taking them down and I’d find them tucked all over the house. Hilarious. :)
