Flat trio, pets number 2 and 3!

There are ear and tail options for a bunny, bear and cat, but I’ve messed up the face on the first head, and it will be a dog. The second will be a cat, and these will go to some small friends at church when they are finished.

Instructions for dog ears and tail, as well as a modified cat tail, are right here:
