DIY Bunny Sock Puppet

I think most folks are familiar with the If You Give Mouse Cookie line of books. One of our favorites is If You Give a Moose a Muffin. In that book the moose is reminded of the sock puppets his grandmother used to make, and that is where we get today’s craft project, a Bunny Sock Puppet!

Here’s a super cute, and really easy craft that even your little one’s (with supervision) can help make. All you need is a sock (old or new), needle and thread, maybe some buttons or beads. Easy peasy!

I started with forming the ears. Our sock had an argyle pattern on it, so I flattened out the sock and cut down the middle of the pattern to try and keep it symmetrical. I only cut just a couple inches down…

Next I turned the sock inside out and whip stitched down one ear and then up the other…

My assistant tried a couple stitches, but quickly became more interested in picking out the eyes and mouth ;-)

Once the ears were stitched, I turned the sock right side out and figured out where the place the eyes, and stitched them one…we used buttons for that.

Then the nose…

We’re beginning to see a face now!

And lastly, the little bunny mouth…we used some beads for that…

Bunny has a bit of a crooked smile, that just give it more character ;-)

There you have it! In the matter of s few minutes you have a sweet little Bunny Sock Puppet!

Time to let your imagination run wild!
