Let’s start making the pompom bunny tail:

  1. Lay one unfolded length of bow wire between the Mini Bowdabra pillars. This is different from the usual way of placing the wire.Wire in Mini Bowdabra for Pompom
  2. Lay an end of  yarn in the Mini Bowdabra.Lay Yarn in Mini Bowdabra for Pompom
  3. Wrap the yarn around the pillars and through the slot, following the wrapping directions in the photo below. Keep a gentle tension on the yarn so that it wraps snuggly, but it not over-stretched.Direction of Yarn Wrap
  4. Compress the yarns during the wrapping process and again at the end when the Mini Bowdabra is filled with yarn.Compress Yarns
  5. With the yarn still in the Mini Bowdabra, lift the wire tails and tie a very tight knot. Remove from the Mini Bowdabra.Tie Knot with Wire
  6. Cut the yarn loops. If necessary, give your pompom bunny tail a hair cut to even out the shape.Cut Yarn Loops

Now, we’ll make the bunny’s body:

  1. Fold the Bowdabra bow wire in half and place in the Mini Bowdabra. You can tuck the wire ends under the Mini Bowdabra so they are out of the way.Wire in Mini Bowdabra Silver
  2. Fold the 8″ tulle in half lengthwise. Lay the length of 6″ tulle on top.  Scrunch the layered tulle into the Mini Bowdabra.Scrunch Layered Tulle in Mini Bowdabra
  3. Compress the tulle with the Mini Bowdabra wand.Compress Tulle
  4. With the tulle still in the Mini Bowdabra, pass the ends of the bow wire through the loop, and tighten. Tie a secure knot on the reverse side of the bow. Leave the wire ends long.Pass Wire Ends through Loop
  5. Position the bunny tail pompom of top of the tulle bow, bringing the wire ends to the back. Tie a secure knot.Bunny and Tail
