You knew I had to do an Easter hooded towel! I’ve had a lot of requests for this one, so here it is. A pink, floppy eared, perfect for Easter…Bunny Hooded Towel! I am posting this early enough that you have time to make it for Easter. And if you’re lucky we’ll have another Easter friend next week. (Update: he’s here and it’s a duck!)
Does he make you feel all springy? I am so happy that Spring is finally coming!
Bunny Hooded Towel Tutorial:
Coordinating pink hand towel
White fabric (or towel for the inner ears and nose)
Small amounts of white and black fabric
Heat n Bond
I have done lots of hooded towel tutorials. I am not going to teach you the basics of how to do the hooded towel in this tutorial because I have a whole post dedicated to that. Go here for full instructions. I am teaching you how to make the face in this post.
So to make the funny face, let’s start out by cutting our hooded towel in half horizontally. Now fold the selvage edge under about 3 inches.
Flip that side over so you are working on the bottom (the side without the seam). Cut your eyes out of the white and black fabric. Also cut your heat n bond in the same sizes. Place your eyes where you want them (leaving room for the nose in front of them) and iron them in place. Then applique around them.
Now, cut your ears out. Cut 4 pieces from the extra half of your pink hand towel and then 2 inner pieces from the white. Grab 1 of your pink ears and applique stitch your white piece to it. Do that again with the other white piece and another pink.
Now place right sides together on the ears and sew around them. Turn them right side out.
On your towel decide where you want your ears. Cut a small slit:
Stick the ear through the hole and then on the underside of the towel sew the opening closed:
Do this for both ears.
Now cut out your nose. Applique it in place. To form the little mouth I just did an applique stitch and went over it a few times:

And that’s it folks! A pretty great bunny hooded towel.
