I can’t take credit for this fast and adorable Easter craft. That creative genius Ashley over at Lil Blue Boo offered up this goodie a few weeks back. Since she mentioned the socks cost $2.50 a pair at Target, I couldn’t resist.
I’m a sucker for anything made out of a sock!
Her tutorial is flawless and super-easy to follow. You really only need to make a few simple cuts. These aren’t large, so they would be easy to sew even without a machine. You only need a pair of knee socks, thread, needle, and some embroidery floss. Maybe some buttons if you would rather have button eyes. I sewed the eyes with embroidery floss since Mac is still so little.
The entire project might take an hour to complete. The little arms and legs are kinda’ thin, so the stuffing was a little tedious but a chopstick, knitting needle, or long-handled paintbrush can remedy that pretty easily.
Don’t you want to make a squishy little bunny or two!?
And while you’re at it, Chez Beeper Bebe has darling original Easter crafts too! Some of which are available for purchase in her Etsy shop for those of you less crafty (cashmere sweater bunnies anyone? I die!) She also provides her clear, and easy to follow mooshy belly bunny tutorial which are crafted out of old t-shirts. How correct will your little one be with a basket full of up-cycled plush bunnies?
