How to do make purple ears like the green ones on my bunny?



I’m new to making toys and even though I’ve got the idiot’s guide to making Ami and all that other “crap” no one can tell me how to stuff/ shape anything.
So, anyone know how to make these ears look more like a bunny for next time?

Hi Debi! Love the purple :smiley: I would reccomend pinching the bottom of the ears together and then securing the bottom of those so that it creates the “shallow” area in the ears. Let me know if that’s helpful at all :slight_smile:

@SierraCrochets07 The purple ears aren’t stuffed.
The green ones from the pattern appear to be stuffed?

The green ones are just pinched and sewn at the bottom so there is a little air inside :blush:

I think you shoulf fold the ear in half length-wise and place a sc through both layers, do this twice to create the pinched end

I put a little fiberfill on top and folded the bottom and stitched it shut with a needle. Now to finish the head and see if these will stay on.
