Making a rabbit

You will need:
Sheets of stiff card
Tracing paper
Pencil
Scissors
Brown, white or grey (for body) and black wool (for eyes)
Darning needle
Pink felt
Ribbon
Pins
Glue

1. Trace two green rings on to card and cut them out. Use them to make two pompoms, then trim one so that it is slightly smaller.

2. Tie the pompoms together using the ends of the centre of each one. Place a piece of ribbon around the join and ties on a bow.

3. To make eyes, thread the needle with black wool and knot one end. Push the needle into the smaller pompon and out a little further over. Make another knot and trim the end.

4. Trace the ear shapes on paper and cut out. Pin to felt and cut around each one. Glue the ears to the smaller pompon. Use the blue pattern to make a baby rabbit with smaller ears.

Pencil
Paper
Scissors
Wool in assorted colour
Darning needle
Black and white felt

1. Trace two green rings, two red rings, two yellow rings and two blue rings onto card and cut them out. In the colours of your choice, make one pompon with the green rings, four with the red and three with each of the blue and yellow.

2. Thread your needle with a long piece of wool and knot one end. Push the needle through the centre of the large pompon and push it to the end of your wool. Thread all the pompons in the same way, finishing with the smaller ones. Knot the wool to stop them falling off.
