Sock Bunny
Teach Me Tuesday – How to Make a Sock Bunny for Your Easter Basket Grandmother Wren

MAKE THIS cuddly stuffed bunny out of a man's white cotton sock (size 12 works best), 1/2 yard of ribbon for bow, one fluffy white pompom and 4 ounces of cotton batting for stuffing.
1. Turn sock inside out and cut out various sections, cutting only on colored lines.

For legs, fold body on lines where shown and backstitch the leg seams. Fold each paw and join seam, leaving straight edge free. Turn under Vs-inch seam allowance around open edges of paws and baste.

2. With right sides together, join two ear pieces, using backstitch and on open edges and baste. Then turn sections right side out. Cut pink facing for each ear slightly smaller than ear pattern. Turn under 1/8 inch seam allowance on ear facing. Then tack facing to front of each ear, as shown.

3. To stuff the bunny, open the roll of cotton batting and stuff the body, legs, and paws firmly. Use just one layer of cotton for the ears to keep them flat.
4. Now you are ready to sew the bunny sections together. Gather up 1/4 inch from top of sock on each side, drawing thread in tightly. Turn in 1/4-inch seam allowance across center (head seam) and slipstitch seam edges together securely. leaving straight edges free. Join pieces for second ear the same way. Turn under 1/4-inch seam allowance

5. Arrange ears around gathered knobs of head, bringing corners of ears together at front. Slipstitch ears in place. Form neck by tying a perky ribbon bow around bunny's head about 3 3/4 inches below head seam.
6. Slipstitch paws to front of body about an inch below neck, keeping them about an inch apart, with seams underneath.
7. For finishing touches, embroider nose, mouth, and whiskers with embroidery floss. Sew on pink buttons for eyes. Sew pompom tail to rear of body as shown.
