How to Make Vintage Hankie Bunnies

Hi Friends!

Do you remember making Hankie Bunnies?


If you forgot how or maybe don't know how.....

let's make some now!



Start with a hankie-

If you don't have one, yes you can use a square piece of thin fabric.

You can even make the bunnies with dinner napkins.


Fold across in a triangle, pretty side out.


Roll up to the point


That little tip will be the tail.



Fold in half


Tie a knot


Pull both ends outward from center knot.


Turn on side and fluff.

Spread ears, the body is a loop and tail points up.

Oh how sweet!


Fill with chocolate foil egg!


Warning:

You can't make just one-

 They multiply fast!


Let me know if you made these as a kid.

  2. Cute, and I love the vintage linens! It might be a nice way to place an egg at each persons plate for Easter.

  5. So pretty - but I don't have any pretty hankies to do them with these days. I'll have to check out the stores when I'm allowed to go shopping again.
