Hat Bunny

Hat Bunny
Made by Meragale for our 2003 Easter/Spring Swap #2 of 3

Gale got this idea from a larger one made with a chenille face.  After trial and error she decided just to paint the face on this mini hat and designed from there.  It turned out adorable.  Thanks Gale!


  • Mini straw hat
  • (2) chenille bumpies
  • (2) wiggly eyes
  • black embroidery thread
  • white acrylic paint
  • white and pink dimensional paint
  • small silk flower


  • Paint dome of hat white.
  • Poke two holes in the base of the hat dome for ears.  Apply blush to bumpies and insert these ears into holes in the hat and glue in place.
