Tail
Make a pom-pom( I love this tutorial using a fork to make a small pom-pom, perfect size for Bun-Bun)

Assembly:
• Attach safety eyes
• Using black embroidery floss, stitch nose slightly lower and in between eyes(refer to pictures).
• Stuff body, use the eraser end of pencil to get stuffing into the top of your Tri-ami.
• Whip stitch bottom seam close
• Attach pom-pom to back of Tri-ami.

• For adding pink hue to cheeks and ears, use powder blush from your make up stash. Use a Q-tip or your pinky finger to apply.

round 17 has an oops. needs to be only fifteen sc between the three sc in one st. if there's going to be 16 between them, there needs to be 38 stitches on the previous round ( which there isn't). easy enough to figure out though :-) and so quick and cute
