Good Morning everyone. I am getting bored. How about you? I’ve read all sorts of things to keep busy. Had interesting questions run through my mind. Passover is coming right around Easter, and my Jewish friends will have very small Seders at home to celebrate. Just like Easter there will be no big celebrations or Seders at the Temple. My sister and I were talking on the phone Sunday night trying to list the 10 plagues of Egypt and couldn’t. Mostly I remembered frogs. I looked it up and one of the plagues was definitely frogs. My friend Barbara shared this frog in her yard yesterday on Facebook. She thought he looked funny. I thought he had good camouflage for her dry yard but looked too dry. We’re in the dry season here in central Florida and have not had rain in a few weeks. Anyway I was talking frog plagues on Sunday and see a frog photo Monday. For some reason, it made me laugh. I guess I’ve been inside too long!
Now on to my little craft. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a beautiful photo of two little bunnies eating flowers. It sort of knocked me out; I had never thought about rabbits eating flowers, but it makes perfect sense. In reality my experience with bunnies is nil, but I do love their faces. Anyway, I’ve seen posts and pins about washcloth bunnies for a few years. It looked easy, and I thought it would be a fun way to spend an afternoon – and it was!

I don’t have a new cute pastel washcloth, doll eyes, and pom poms like most crafters use. I do have lots of washcloths and decided to use a light tan one. A baby of a brown rabbit maybe? I was determined to make him with what I had in the house. I looked at my buttons but did not have 3 small buttons. I decided to use tacks. Necessity is the mother of invention. So I used a tan washcloth, 3 tacks, and a rubber band. It is not hard to make, but it is hard roll and take a picture at the same time!
First you place your washcloth on an angle in the shape of a diamond.
Second start with a corner on the middle of one side and start tightly roll it to the middle.
Third roll from the point on the other side to have both rolls meet in the middle.
Fourth, Fold and have both ends meet with one “ear” in front of the other.
Fifth Use a hair tie or rubber band on top to wrap for form head and ears.
6 I adjusted face and ears until I was happy. I had blackened the tops of 3 tacks with a black magic marker and let dry. I put glue on the point of the tacks and pressed them into the face.
7 I wrapped a rustic string over the rubber band I used and tied a bow. I glued a cotton ball to the end of the body for a tail.
I wanted my bunny in a rustic nest. I used the wood slice charger I made last fall for the base.
I added a rustic plate and started to arrange some moss in a circle to outline the nest. I added a few flowers to nest. Mamma bunny got them for baby to eat.
Rustic washcloth bunny goes in the middle, and that is my rustic baby bunny in a nest.
Thanks for the visit. Wishing you blue skies and bright sunlight. Make a comment and leave a website, and I’ll visit you. Stay sane!
