Using the long tails of the pieces you made, begin attaching them together.
Attach the head to the body using the tail you left on the body (with sc rounds going horizontally).
Attach the legs and arms along the bottom and side of the body with the flat end traveling along a sc round of the body. Try to attach the two legs to the same round to make them even (same with the arms).
Attach the ears to the top of the head a little closer to the back of the head than the front.
Attach the bunny tail onto the lower part of the back.
Attach the eyes to the lower half of the face. Using some white yarn, sew on a small white dot to each eye.
With black yarn, sew on an x-shape for the nose and mouth.
Finish off any leftover tails.
