These little creatures will bring delight to an Easter basket or table decoration. They are made of fabric circles called yo yos. I just added some pom poms, jiggle eyes, etc. It was a fun project.

Approximate Time: each one took about 30 minutes.


For Chick: For Bunny:


  1. With a compass, make circles on cardboard of the following sizes in inches: 6 1/2, 6, 5 1/2, 5.
  2. Cut circles out and use as templates on fabric cutting one circle of 6 1/2 inches, 2 circles of 6 and 5 1/2 inches, and one of 5 inches. You will have 6 circles.
  3. Sew each circle about 1/4 inch around the edge with a basting stitch, pull up, and gather thus forming a yo yo. Tack thread in the middle to secure gathering. Do this with all circles.

  4. Now starting with the 6 1/2 inch yo yo in the middle, stack the other circles over and under the big yo yo (gathered side up) ending with a 5 1/2 inch yo yo on the bottom and the 5 inch yo yo on top. Run a double thread up through the center of the yo yo stack and secure.

  6. Now you are ready to assemble the chick or bunny. Using the photo as a guide assemble the head using the 1 1/2 inch pom pom.
  7. Glue eyes in place and add a diamond shape beak and jagged feet cut from orange foam sheet or white feet for the bunny. Glue the small pink pom pom for the bunny nose. Attach pipe cleaner ears to top of bunny head. Attach head to the top yo yo with glue. Attach small white pom poms for bunny arms and attach painted egg. Tie bows around neck.

    Hi, this is Jan Lee. I posted this project & totally forgot the bunny's tail in the instructions.


    Add a pom pom to the back of the bunny. We can't have the Easter bunny running around with no tail!
