How to Indent the eyesT

Take a strand of yarn and loop it through the hole where you plan to attach the eyes.  Make sure the strands are inside of the head. Snap in the eyes. Tie a tight knot to indent the eyes. Making sure to pull the strands very tightly. Tie another knot tight to hold in to place. Now stuff the head and shape the stuffing around the knots. Careful not to over stuff or you may lose the deep indent.

Make a Pom-Pom for the cottontail

This tail was made with 40 passes around.

Stitching the Nose and Mouth.

Take a strand of yarn and pass up the middle of the face. This strand will be the mouth. Then stitch the strand in a V shape to create the nose. Pass of twice for the nose.
