I like big ears rabbit, so do you? This project is easy to pull off. You will need 3 mid-calf socks to create a sock rabbit. If you have some unwanted or mismatched socks, now you can recycle those socks and turn it into a sock rabbit. If you think you want to make a pair of brand new sock rabbits as a gift for someone, then you should buy three pairs of mid-calf socks. Let refer to the material list below and follow the guided picture and instruction to get it done.
1. Three mid-calf socks
2. Two shank buttons (for eyes)
3. Decorative button (for shirt)
4. Felt cloth (for nose)
5. Poly-fill material
6. Matching embroidery thread and sewing thread
7. Ribbon (optional)
Follow the instruction below to create a sock rabbit step by step:
Step 1. Start to make the bear's head. Turn the head piece to the right side and stuff up the head with poly-fill material, then run stitches along the raw edge. Before pulling it tight, fold the raw edge inwards. Tighten up the opening by pulling the thread fully and then make a few stitches across, knot and cut thread.
Step 2. Turn the body part to the right side. Stuff up the body. Then, run stitches along the raw edge.Tighten up the opening. Do it the same way as you made for the head. Now, join the head and the body together with a slip stitch.
Step 3. Turn the shirt to the right side. Put on the shirt with the raw edge facing the legs and fold the raw edge inwards.
Step 4. Turn the ear piece right side out and roll it up. Secure the base of the rolled edge with needle and thread. Do the same for the other ear and attach the ears to the head.
Step 5. Turn the hand piece right side out, stuff up and close the opening. Press the point near to the opening to form a flat-shaped upper arm. Repeat the steps for the other hand and sew the hands to the body
Step 6. Put on the sleeves and secure them in place. Then sew the decorative butoon on the shirt.
Step 7. Take the tail portion and simply cut out a circle. Run stitches along the raw edge and put some poly-fill material on it. Pull the thread tight to close the opening. Don't cut the thread, sew it to the lower back with the same thread.
Step 8. Sew the eyes on the face.
Step 9. Cut out a nose (small love shape) from a piece of felt cloth and sew it on the face.
Step 10. Sew the mouth with the matching embroidery thread. Done!!
