Step 2.Separate embroidery hoop and place fabric centered over the smaller inner hoop. Place glue inside the inner of the large hoop and carefully fit over inner hoop avoiding getting glue on the top of the fabric. Tighten screw on outer hoop until nice and tight. Gently pull fabric from behind evenly to gain a tight taut fabric top. Leave excess fabric at the back for now and allow glue to dry fully.

Step 7.As per manufacturers' instructions insert the toy eyes to the bunny as per indicated on the template.
Step 8.Optional: Hand sew a large running stitch with white perle thread around the bunny's outer edges.
If fabric has lost some tightness, adjust fabric and re-glue hoop. Trim excess fabric from back of hoop as close to hoop as possible.
