Cute, right? But, you may be wondering why I would attach such things to my napkin only to have them destroyed in the washer. Well, this little bunny is keeping a secret under that white, fluffy tail…snaps! No muss…no fuss…simply remove and wash!
Set of Napkins
Needle and matching thread
First, I made the bunny template. I looked on Google images for inspiration. There were plenty of images, but I didn’t see exactly what I was looking for. So, I decided to draw my own. To make my template sturdier, I drew my image on an old Manila folder.
Then, with an X-acto knife I carefully cut out the image.
Next, I measured exactly where I wanted to place my stencil, making sure that each bunny was in the same spot on each napkin.
Then, using a sponge brush, I dabbed fabric paint onto the napkin.
While I was waiting for the napkins to dry, I made the jute bows by simply cutting a 50-inch length of twine for each napkin, folding it in half (so that I would have two bows adjoined on one napkin), and then tying. I cut the excess twine so it did not exceed the width of the napkins.
Then, I attached the pom poms and jute bows using sew-on snaps, needle, and thread.
I have to say I really love my sweet little napkins. I know they are going to be a mainstay on my table all spring long!
