To Make a Sock Bunny, You Will Need:

How to Make the Bunny Ears

1  Cut a U shape from the centre of the tube part of the sock, around a third of the total sock length. Also make a hole in the toe to insert the stuffing.

2 Turn the sock inside out and sew the ears up.

3 Take two equal amounts of stuffing and stuff into the ears through the hole in the toe. Fill enough so that the ears can stand up. There will be gaps in the stuffing that make the ears look uneven. Rub the ears after you fill with the stuffing, to make sure the stuffing is distributed evenly.

How to Make the Head and Body

1 Form the stuffing into a ball shape.

2  Stuff the whole ball into the body through the hole in the toe. If there is too much or not enough stuffing, you’ll need to pull it out. Remold the new amount into a ball shape, and fill it again. Don’t try to patch in extra stuffing as the body will look uneven.

3 Push the stuffing all the way up to the heel. Fill the heel with plenty of stuffing to create a very round shape. This will give the sock bunny a lovely round face.

4 Close up the hole in the toe.

How to Make the Face

1 Draw the face within the colour-block area on the heel with a disappearing marker.

2 Use satin stitch with embroidery thread to fill in the nose area. Using split stitch, sew along the traced outlines for the mouth and eyes with embroidery thread.

3 To make the sock bunny stand up, gently press and mold the stuffing. You might need to press the bottom into a flat platform.
