MaterialsLight colored canvas or cotton fabric Fabric paint Small paint brush Embroidery hoop, needle & thread Iron Optional: Contrasting scrap fabric Computer printed message Glue   How-To
  • Paint a thin layer over child’s palm and fingers, excluding thumb. Visible brush strokes are great, because they mimic rabbit fur.
  • Holding child’s fingers in a “V” formation (pinky & ring fingers together/middle & pointer fingers together), press painted hand firmly onto fabric. Taking care not to slide hand, carefully peel hand up and off of fabric. Let hand print dry.
  • Place fabric into embroidery hoop; use satin stitch and back stitch to embroider ear centers, nose and mouth onto handprint.
  • Iron piece flat.
  • Glue on fabric scrap “background” pieces and printed message onto blank area of piece.
  • Frame & enjoy!
