These washcloth crafts are a lovely, creative way to present gifts for both baby and bridal showers. I included a couple different tutorials for each project and will be adding more ideas here as I find them (so you may want to bookmark this page for reference), enjoy!

With Dishcloth: Can also be made with a washcloth, easy folding instructions.

With Washcloth: A different folding technique but just as easy!

I also tucked in a video tutorial from YouTube below:

Cupcakes

Consider packing these in boxes of 6 and present as you would freshly baked & decorated cupcakes.

Washcloth & Felt: This project uses a washcloth with a strip of felt for added decoration. Tutorial also included for making a diaper cupcake.

Flannel: Cute project made with a washcloth rolled just-right and placed in a decorative paper cup and topped with a lollipop.

Also check out Spa Cupcake (has tea light candles and soap petals tucked in for a baby shower favor) and Burp Cloth & Baby Socks (wrapped and packaged in coffee filters tied in place with ribbon).

You’ll also find free cupcake wrapper templates here if you wish to make your own.

Bunnies

Bunnies: Made with washcloths, rubber bands, ribbon, Googly eyes, pom poms and tape.

Bunny & Chick: Learn how to make either a cuddly bunny or a chick.

Boo Boo Bunnies: These are popular gifts for baby showers and fillers for new baby gift baskets (good item for a diaper cake too), these are very easy to make! Also see this Boo-Boo Bunny Tutorial which includes a nice video tutorial.

The idea is to stick an ice cube in the middle of the bunny and apply to the “boo boo”. Kids love them and are comforted by their cuddly friend. Because a rubber band, glued pompoms and eyes are used, this is more a decoration piece for a baby’s nursery until the child is old enough to have it without worrying about the small piece choking hazard.

A cute little poem to go with it as well (don’t miss the couple added in the discussion area below, thanks very much to Virginia and Susan for sharing!):

Boo Boo Bunny

If a boo boo has you feeling crummy,
Stick an ice cube in my tummy.
Hold it to your boo boo tight.
Soon everything will be all right!

    Here is a poem we used yeas ago, author unknown:

    When your little one gets a bump,
    put Boo Boo Bunny on the lump.
    Put an ice cube in his pouch
    And soon there will be no more ouch!

  3. Virginia Ucci says:

    Thanks for the idea. I was cleaning out and found two boo boo bunny poems which were for my grandchildren who are now 26 and 24 years old. I knew you would help me out. I would like to share their poems with you for another idea.

    HI! I’M THE BOO BOO BUNNY
    AND I AM HERE TO STAY.

    WHEN YOUR CHILD GETS A BOO BOO
    I’LL HELP IT GO AWAY.

    JUST PLACE AN ICE CUBE IN MY
    BACK AND REST IT ON THE LUMP.

    THEN LET THEM HOLD BOO BOO
    BUNNY UNTIL THERE IS NO LUMP.

    Enjoy!
