After a great success on making a bunch of sock monkeys, I challenged myself sewing another sock toy… this time I designed and sewed sock bunny. Not only this, I have got a good news to whom who loves bunny, I have another version, a kawai-i version of bunny, stay tuned for the update {update: here it is, the droopy ear sock bunny tutorial}.

Unlike many sock toys that needs a pair of socks to sew, each sock bunny only needs one (1) sock to make. With a pair of socks you can make a pair of bunny couples. If you have a rather new sock that lost it’s partner, you can make a bunny with it instead of throwing it away. You may use different sizes of socks to come out with various sizes of sock bunnies.

The sock bunny can’t sit on its own, I pinned them down for photography purpose. You may add beads or rice to make the bottom heavier so that it can sit properly. Add the rice or beads in a small sachet and insert it into the body before closing up the opening to avoid the small particles from slipping out from the sock. Otherwise, you may add a string on it’s head to hang it up. Pinch the head and lift it up to find a balancing point to add string to hang.

[If you are interested on the felted carrot shown at the background, here is the tutorial to make it.]

  39. Great tutorial. Thankyou! I’ve made a monkey so far and am planning to make a mini zoo. I found some great zebra pattern socks and was wondering if you have tried making any zebras? I found a few patterns online but they are not as cute as your patterns are.

    • Hi Mandamck, thank you for liking and making the monkey. I do not have zebra pattern yet but I am thinking to design one soon. For the mean time, you could try out the owl, bunnies and penguin which was added in the pattern recently. Stay tuned for the zebra pattern.

  40. Thanks! I’m going to try the lop eared bunny next – the taller one. And some smaller monkeys. I’ll keep an eye out for the zebra pattern!
