Isn’t this cute?!?! My son came home from school 4 years ago with a Washcloth Easter Bunny that his bus driver made him. It is super simple to make. So simple that we my kiddos just made some Dishtowel Bunnies for their school teachers. These would also make cute gifts for friends or made as washcloths would be good the entire spring season or as decorations for a baby shower.
My kiddos loved them so much that I will be making the washcloth version for them as a filler for their Easter baskets. I have always had a chocolate bunny in their baskets, but this year there were not any $1 bunnies available that were made from quality chocolate and I cannot justify the sugar rush nor the money to pay over $5 for a humungo bunny just to have it. I’ll spend that money on some other fun for them!
What You Need:
- Washcloth or dishtowel (or even a bathroom hand towel)
- Google eyes (try to get the sticker kind)
- Hot glue gun or glue dots
Step 3: Gently fold a little less than 1/3 over. fold it in thirds with the last third a little longer than the rest.
Step 5: Add a rubber band around the center to secure the fold and create the ears, face, bum and legs of the bunny.
Step 6: Tie a ribbon on top of the rubber band to finish the look.
Step 7: Add accents (i.e. eyes, tail, nose, candy, cute note, etc.). I really tried hard to not use a glue gun so that these can be reusable, but double sided sticky tape just didn’t work. So, use the hot glue gun sparingly. Just a little dab on the poms is all you need. I was luckily able to find google eyes with a sticky back and those stayed on great. I thought about sewing things on instead, but glue was soooo much faster!
The dishtowel bunnies are a lot thinner than I expected, but you can’t really tell in the pictures. If you want a thicker look, try a hand towel. Below is the hand towel on the left and the dishtowel on the right.
This is also a cute friend gift or if you are needing to make multiples for a group. They are pretty inexpensive, especially if you buy the bulk washcloth backs.
