InspirationReference - Cross Mouth Rabbit v1

I was inspired by an origami bunny pin gifted to me at an origami convention that I attended before and by a certain little rabbit.

The ear structure is reused from my Big Totoro v2 model. The placement of features (eyes, body, etc.) is similar to that in my Ribbon Kitty v1 model, except rotated with paper allocated for longer ears and no bows. The most challenging part was depicting the cross-shaped mouth. The semi-final method (labeled "alternative" in the crease pattern) looked nice enough but was difficult to fold with small sheets of paper. However, the final way I chose (depicted in the main crease pattern below) can be folded reasonably well even with 9.4 inch (24 cm) kami paper.
