Because Easter's this coming weekend, I noticed a few blogs posting Easter related craft projects, one of which is the Socks Bunny.
I decided to give it a go, and decided to try a really easy version.
1) Stuff the bottom part of the sock, leaving the "heel" section of the sock unstuffed for the moment. Twist slightly, and using a needle and thread sew the stuffing in. (I sewed a loop around the sock, pulled it tight, and used the thread to go several rounds around it as well.) This creates the bunny's body.
|Nel's first attempt at stitching and she did it pretty well!|
|Notice the "heel" section of the sock is unstuffed? Also you can see how the bunny's going to be already.|
4) here I snipped some cloth away in the center to create the rabbit's ears.
5) then I stitched the open bits together. My girls chose to leave the ears unstitched to create a droopy effect.
|This is Nel's almost done. She did it completely by herself! and named it Blaster.|
|Here's Zillary (the pink bunny, name given by Jo) and Pixel (my old white sock bunny.)|
|This is Junee's cutie rabbit.|
|And here's them all. Best friends forever. haha...|
