Don't show this post to my grandchildren! I am sending them these bunnies in their Easter packages this year! Because I had most of the needed supplies already, except the number of socks that I needed, these were a very economical gift to make. Plus, they whip up really quickly!
These bunnies have been all over Pinterest, except with one difference. All of the ones I have seen have been filled with rice. I decided rice in a no sew bunny, at least for my grandchildren, is probably a bad idea because of 2 reasons:
Because of those two reasons, I decided to make these with fluffy polyester stuffing. Yes, I know, they won't really stand up by themselves, but I am willing to live with that.
These bunnies would be perfect for using up socks that have lost their mates. But, I needed to make 10 of them, so I purchased a package of 10 pairs of socks from Walmart. With 10 pairs, you could make 20 bunnies! You can use any size sock that you want, depending on how big you want your bunny to be. It is important not to use no show socks, but use something with a cuff that will work as the rabbit's ears.
Here are the supplies you will need:
I created a little video to show you how easy it is to make these little rabbits!
Each bunny tends to have a different personality, depending on how much you stuff it, how the ears fall and the color of the sock and ribbon. I just did the basic eyes and mouth suggested by others, but you can give them eyelashes or a smile, whatever you would like.
I also had socks that were white with colored heels and toes. They also come out cute, so you don't have to limit yourself to solid colored socks.
I will couple these bunnies with some candy and I'm sure my grandkids will love these little treats this Easter. (Including the teenagers, as long as there is candy!) Maybe I will make some of these chocolates this year! (Wow! That is an old post!)
Other gifts I've made my grandchildren (to name a few):
