What’s the Project? This cute bunny hooded towel is a fun towel for any little one for Easter or for any time! An easy to follow pattern to make this great hooded towel that is great for the littlest of babies up to elementary ages kids. This makes a fun gift!
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. This would make the cutest little Easter gift for a little one!
This might be one of my very favorite hooded towels out of all of them. So cute isn’t it?!
Does he make you feel all springy? I am so happy that Spring is finally coming!
It could also be fun to make a duck hooded towel for Easter time:

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.

I was wondering how you can make the hood longer. My grandkids are getting bigger and they need a larger hood that goes down to their neck.
Just don’t fold the top under when you make it. That will add quite a few inches.

I just love your hooded towel tutorials! Wonder if you would do an Elsa (from frozen) hooded towel. I have a couple of pictures of these that I found on Pinterest. They’re for sale, but I’d MUCH rather make mine. Not sure how to attach a picture here, but I could email you them. Thanks!!
I have thought about it! I will add it to my list.
I’m super excited to make these. They will be Christmas gifts for my five kids and all my young nieces and nephews! I have a dumb question (I know it’s dumb because no one else has asked it). When cutting the hand towels “Horizontally” are we cutting them horizontally LONG or Short. Will it make more of a square (short) or a long rectangle (long). So tough to put into words! Thank you so much!
Short and fat
Thanks… I figured that out once I read the duck tutorial. You might also want to change hooded to hand towel in the same paragraph. It all makes sense to me now. The towels are delightful and I’m going to give one of them a try this weekend. Thanks!
Love the bunny towel! I’m a little confused by this direction – “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 moments.” What are moments as a measurement?
Inches. That’s a major typo. 🙂

I just made my first bunny towel and I love it!!! I gave it a little fluffy white bunny tail and I’m debating whether it needs little felt buck teeth lol thank you so much!!!!
Awesome! I’d love to see a pic if you add the teeth.
Jessica Rutledge says
No, I decided against the teeth. Decided it would look too dorky lol
I added the teeth , and it is super cute! Thanks

Super cute, as usual! I just love the bunny ears! And pink is my favorite – do you have this in an adult size? 😉
Sure thing! Ha ha! Actually that might be scary. 🙂
So cute. Could you put a pattern up for the nose and ears and maybe even the eyes. I can do the eyes but the ears I definetly need a pattern. Thanks
I just added them. Thought I could maybe get away with not doing them but everyone’s been asking. 🙂
