DIY French Bunny Napkins

Are you sick of all my bunny projects yet?  Over the last few weeks I have shared how to make my 2 bunny pillows here and here. If you can't already tell, I love bunny's and I am so excited about today's project because I kid you not this only takes about 30 minutes top! Are you ready to start? The supplies you need are cotton napkins, yes that means ironing but you really need 100% cotton for the best results. Also needed is transfer paper, scissors, your printer and an iron. Seriously, that's it!
I found my napkins on Amazon, they were 2 sets of 4 for about 15.00. I only used 4 because I am toying with the idea of doing my other french bunny on the other set. We shall see. 

 I also found my transfer paper on Amazon and I love it. Kinda pricey but you will be able to do lots of projects.

 This cute bunny I found on the web and flipped it to a mirror image so I could use it with the transfer paper. If it did not have letting than you would not need to do a mirror image.

I was able to print out 4 images on one page. I always first print it on regular paper to check the size. 

Now for something I do not like. I had to iron the napkins.  And yes, I know I did not get all the wrinkles out but it was enough in the area that I needed flat.

 I cute around the printed image pretty close, placed it printed side down on my napkin  and ironed according to the transfer directions. 

 Now how fun is this, as we lift the paper off the magic happens!

 Now I have a set of cute bunny napkins for Easter or even a Spring Brunch. 

 I hope you have enjoyed my project and just think of all the options you have. Enjoy your week!

Oh - these are so cute! Beautiful, actually! You are right, they would go with any kind of spring type meal, not just Easter - though for Easter they would be just perfect! BTW, I also love your pillows! Thanks for the tutorials!

I love all things French. How do these hold up to washing? I have never used the transfer paper before.
Thank you!

There is always more room for bunnies. I am quite taken with the French hare graphic over at The Graphics Fairy. I use him many times on linens. Love the place settings.
