Baby – Bunny Baby Basket

Baby – Bunny Baby Basket

This tutorial shows you how to make a baby basket using baby supplies to give as a gift.

What you need

1 Wire coat hanger
2 Bath towels
2 inch Wobble Eyes
1 length of Ribbon
1/2 mt Elastic
1mt Length of Lace


This Bunny is the perfect gift for new mums or for taking to a baby shower. You could also do this project with several cloth nappies in place of the towels. This Bunny would make a lovely Easter basket too. We also have instructions for Towel and Diaper Cake as well as a cute Bunny gift basket.

Put the two towels together lengthways to form a square. Roll them diagonally into the center.



Fold the rolled length in half. Halfway down this folded length place the elastic around it to secure it in place.


This rounded section forms the body. The two loose ends that are remaining form the ears. Fold the ear section back onto the body forming the head.


Secure with elastic. You can leave the ears floppy or make them pointy. Take the wire coat hanger and form it into a v shape. Push the wire into the back of the ears and bend the hanger hook underneath the bunny. Pin the ear fabric around the wire to hold them up, its a little like a hem around the wire.

Finish the bunny off by tying the ribbon around the head. Add the wobble eyes, either with glue or some double-sided tape (so it can be removed later). We finished it off by just adding a teddy bear, but you could add baby supplies or just about anything. You could place the bunny onto a cake base, or cardboard base for stability when transporting it.


  1. peoplw concerned by the hanger should remember this is a shower gift. you take it apart and use the towels for the baby. it is not a toy. oh,boy.

  2. Thats a little dangerous to have a hanger in this craft.

    ahhh…CUTE!!! they look so soft and friendly. A definite 6 (i mean 5)stars :0 – i’m starstruck

  9. I love this! When we were kids, we used to have these. We called them BoBo Bunnies! If you make them with a wash cloth, you can freeze them for teething babies. We also used to put an ice cube in the hole when we would fall down! Great to see them back!

  10. I love this pattern using a washcloth to make mini bunnies. They make excellent party favors!

  12. This turned out so pretty. I put the eyes on the front and it looked better. And I used nappy pins to pin the ears around the hanger.
    And I got 4 orders to make more. 🙂
