“Everybunny needs somebunny sometimes.”
NO SEW SOCK BUNNY
I got these Easter socks as a conference freebie however they weren’t anything I would normally wear. Also, I didn’t really have anyone to give to so I decided they would make a fun little project.
If I make some in the future, I would keep the print to a minimum and maybe do pastel polka dots, solids, and stripes. Oh, and fuzzy socks would be soooooo cute!!!!
So let’s hop to it….

- Socks, THESE would be perfect and what I would get to make again.
- Funnel, the larger one
- Twist Ties, Wire, Ribbon, or Clear Rubber Bands
- Small/Thin String (mouth)
- Pom Pom
- Hot Glue Gun /Glue
* One 32 oz bag of rice made 3 bunnies.
**I used part of a piece of a rose petal I had from a craft but you could use felt or material as well.
- With a funnel, fill the sock with some rice; enough to make just the lower part of the bunny. Twist sock and tie it off tightly with twist ties, clear rubber bands, or ribbon.
- Fill the sock again with rice to form the head. Twist and tie off. The remaining top part of the sock will be the bunny ears.
- Bringing the top part of the fabric up, cut straight down the middle to form two ears. NOTE – I did NOT cut all the way to the head. I cut about half way down.
- Cut the ears to the desired shape. I just angled toward the point. Since the fabric is cut open, I glued the two together.
- Add a ribbon between the body and the head.
- For the face, I glued eyes, a nose, and super thin string for the mouth. If you use hot glue, these work great at protecting your finger tips!
- Finally, for the cotton tail I used a pom pom in whatever size and color you like.
