If you have ever been on a cruise ship, the towel animals are always a fun surprise. While the cabin stewards are amazingly creative and very intricate with their towel origami, we are going to show you how to make a very simple bunny just in time for Easter. This darling bunny, made from one washcloth makes for a delightful and reusable Easter gift. It even has a space in the back for an easter egg. This towel creation was inspired by
A Spoon Full of Sugar
You will need:
- 1 Square Face cloth (we used 13″x13″ sized)
- 1 elastic (clear or same colour as cloth)
- 2 pom noms
- double sided tape
- 2 Googly eyes
- Lay the face cloth on a flat surface.
- Fold cloth into a triangle by joining opposite corners.
- Roll the cloth into a long roll starting from the pointed end.
- Fold the rolled cloth in half.
- Fold the pointy ends up towards the curved part of the roll.
- Place the elastic around the cloth approx. 1 inch from the fold to make the bunny face and ears.
- Wedge the first pom pom between the bunny’s “cheeks” in the middle of the “face”.
- Using two sided tape secure the googly eyes on either side of the nose and the other pom pom to the middle top of the curved part of the bunny as her tail.
- Optionally, tie a pretty ribbon around the bunny’s neck over the elastic.
Because we use two sided tape and not glue for the eyes and tail the bunny can easily be taken apart to be reused as a face cloth. Write in the comments to tell us how yours turned out and what you did with them.
