Assembly:
Step 1: Stuff head with up to 3 cotton balls so the head is firm.
Step 2: Slip egg into bottom of work small end first. This will make it easier to finish the bunny.
Step 3: Stitch ears to top of head.
Step 4: Embroider nose and mouth onto front of face.
Step 5: Glue wiggle eyes in place with either a gel type of Super Glue or E6000. I used Loctite Super Glue.
Step 6: Now take egg back out of body, fill with goodies and put back into body.
Step 7: Glue pompom to back for tail
Step 8: Tie ribbon around neck and tie into a bow. Trim ends of ribbon if needed.

SAFETY NOTE: This is not a toy! This is for decorative purposes only. The wiggle eyes can come off and pose a choking hazard. If making this for a small child age 3 and under, please embroider all of the facial features on and do not use the wiggle eyes.
