It’s been aaaaages since I posted a DIY Craft Tutorial on here hasn’t it! I was looking through my drafts yesterday and I found this cute little Sock Bunny Tutorial which had gotten lost through my hundreds of ‘to do posts’ that I have yet to complete. I totally forgot about this cute little DIY project which I actually made & wrote last year after watching a tutorial video on YouTube. I thought I’d post it anyhow as it has been one of my favourite little makes so far.
It was so easy to make the sock bunny and kids can accomplish it too as well as adults. I’ve made a couple now and have left myself absolutely sockless along the way, ha ha. So, if you lot are sitting there bored out of your skulls, with nothing to do and you have an old pair of socks lying round – carry on reading to see how I made mine and give it a go yourselves.
What You Will Need To Make The Sock Bunny:
a pair of socks
a sewing machine (or you can sew by hand)
cotton that matches the socks
darker cotton for the mouth and nose
two buttons for the eyes
polyester filling (I got mine here*)
How To Make The Sock Bunny?
Below, is the video tutorial I watched on YouTube for inspiration.
My Sock Bunny:
Well girls, this is my little sock bunny! Isn’t it cute! It’s not perfect like but I really love it :). Sock bunnies are the easiest things to make and they really do make a lovely handmade gift – especially for kids. I made my two nieces one each and they’ve said they are going to treasure them forever, little sweethearts! I think handmade gifts are so much more thoughtful and sweeter than shop-bought gifts.
If you decide to make your own little sock bunny – please tweet me your photo’s on Twitter – @KatieRoseLovesx or tag me on Instagram – @katieroseloves, you could also post to my wall on Facebook – here.
I would really love to see what you have made!
Happy crafting girlies! Mwah! x
