- 2. Using patterns, cut out felt pieces as indicated. From plush felt, use a compass to cut following circles: one 4" mint green for Mama's tail, two 2" mint green for Mama's cheeks, and one 3" lilac for baby's tail.
- 3. Center Mama's foam cheeks, front paws, back feet, body (large egg), and tail (1-1/2" ball) flat side up on wrong side of corresponding mint green felt piece. Wrap felt around edges of foam onto flat edge and pin at top, bottom, and center of each side. Adjust excess fabric between pins and then glue felt in place. Remove pins. Trim excess felt as necessary. Repeat to cover baby bunny's foam body (3-1/16" x 2-5/16" egg) and tail (1" ball) with lilac felt.
