You have multiple options to make eyes for your Easter Bunny applique. You can embroider eyes, you can also use buttons or googly eyes. (For babies and small children items – embroider the eyes on to avoid any safety concerns!)
Embroider the ears and the mouth.

Hello! Hope you are staying well in these weird times.
I am making an Eater Garland to help me stay sane!
Please can I ask 2 questions?
1. Are your terms American or English?
2. The carrot instructions make reference to stars to repeat from but there are none. Please could you tell me which group of stitches this refers to? I am very new to crochet!
Thanks for your time.
I like your idea to use my heart bunnies for the Easter garland!
The crochet terminology is American. Thank you for letting me know about the missing stars. I just corrected the instructions. Let me know if you have any more questions. Take care!
