Crafts: Sew a simple bunny apron for Easter

Follow these simple instructions to make a cute and practical apron.

| April 2009

I recently came across an apron a friend made for my daughter when she was 5 years old. I’ve kept it for 25 years because it’s cute - and because my daughter enjoyed it so much. It’s showing a lot of wear, but my granddaughters are now enjoying it.

The children’s bunny apron is adorable, and it’s simple to make.

Supplies needed:

  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • White terry cloth
  • Pink terry cloth
  • 3 buttons
  • Cotton stuffing
  • Bias tape
  • Ribbon or rickrack


  1. Cut a 27-by-18-by-18-inch triangle out of white terry cloth for the body.
  2. Cut an 8-inch circle out of white terry cloth for the bunny’s head.
  3. Cut two 13-by-3-inch strips out of pink terry cloth for the ears.
  4. Sew the head to the body, then sew the ears onto the head.
  5. Make a buttonhole in one ear, then sew a button on the other ear. The ears will wrap around and button behind the neck of the child wearing the apron.
  6. Cut a small circle out of white terry cloth. Place stuffing on it and sew it into a ball for the tail. (If preferred, buy a coil of white fringe for the tail.)
  7. Sew the tail to one end of the body. Sew a loop of bias tape to the other end. The ends will wrap around the child’s back and fasten by inserting the tail through the loop, as seen in the inset photo.
  8. Bind the apron in bias tape.
  9. Use black bias tape to make the bunny’s nose and whiskers, or embroider them using black thread.
  10. Attach two pink buttons for the eyes.
  11. Make a bow tie to go around the bunny’s neck using ribbon or rickrack in any design you choose.
