Bow tie

Cut a rectangle 17 x 14 cm from the flannel fabric

With the wrong side of fabric facing down, fold and overlap the longest sides (the sides that measure 17 cm) by 2 cm (img A). Sew along the open sides using running stitch (img B).

Turn inside out and insert some toy stuffing.

Cut a rectangle 10 x 5 cm from the flannel fabric to tie the bow in the middle.
With the right side of the fabric facing down, fold the longest sides (the sides that measure 10 cm) for 1 cm per each side. Wrap the piece of fabric around the main part of the bow until you get a nice shaped bow, secure the piece with few stitches.

Stitch the bow on to the body of the bunny or use a safety pin.
