Pier One Knockoff Easter Bunny Dishtowel

A couple of days ago I got the Easter Pier One catalog and immediately fell in love with the Easter dishtowels on page 18. I knew I could do something similar for cheaper than their price ($6.99 ea), so I pulled out some supplies and got started. These dishtowels are from the dollar store, and the rest of the things are from my stash. So the total cost for this project was $1.

Supplies: Dishtowels from dollar store, scrap fabric, buttons, ric rac.

This was the label on the dishtowels for easy identification if anyone is looking for them.

Sew on the buttons and draw the lines for the whiskers and mouth with washable marker.

Sew on the whiskers and mouth and check the placement for the ears.

Next pin the fabric to the bottom and sew.

Pin the ric rac and sew. Attach ears after this step (forgot to take a picture!).

Here is my finished dishtowel. I love my little bunny and think I will add the polka dot fabric to the two green dishtowels and set them on either side of this one for a little accent.

Very, very cute. I don't hang up towels for Easter, but my kids would love a bunny towel. I could use this idea for some bath hand towels. Thanks for the great tutorial.
