DIY a fluffle of Sweet Sock Bunnies!

Can you ever have enough bunny crafts? No, I didn’t think so! This Sweet Sock Bunny by Linda Valentino is cute as can be, and while kids will have a blast making these sock bunnies, I think it’s a pretty fun adult craft, too. I’m picturing these bunnies hopping down the center of the Easter dinner table, or placing one Sweet Sock Bunny at each place setting. Or display a fluffle* of colorful bunnies in a big basket. Let’s hop on to the tutorial.

You could make a fluffle of Sock Bunnies in a rainbow of colors!

To make a Sweet, Sock Bunny:

1. Turn sock inside out, and place it on work surface with the heel facing up. Cut down the center from the toe about 3-1/2”, to the beginning of heel. Glue cut ends together forming two ears. After glue dries, turn sock and ears right side out.

2. Make the bunny body:

  • Press the large end of the egg on a tabletop to flatten, so the egg will stand on its own.
  • Glue a 2-1/4” felt circle to the bottom.
  • Dip a toothpick in glue, and insert it hallway in the narrow end of the egg.
  • Add a dab of glue to the other end, and pick and glue the ball to the egg.
  • Press firmly together, and let dry.

3. Bend in half an 8” chenille stem, and insert one half in each ear. Insert bunny body into the sock, and pull the ankle opening down around the bottom of the egg. Glue sock in place at bottom.

  1. Finish decorating the bunny:
  • Tie ribbon around the bunny’s neck, and form a bow.
  • Glue two small flowers to bow.
  • Glue eyes, nose, and cheeks to face.
  • Blush cheeks with chalk.

Like I said, you can’t have enough bunnies this time of year, so check out these Bunny Babies, also made with socks.

*What’s a “fluffle”? It seems too good to be true, but I read that in some regions, a group of bunnies is called a “fluffle”. Don’t you love that? It’s the perfect name for a group of bunnies, and I hope it’s really true. Because I believe in fluffles, I’ve planned another bunny craft for Friday  . . .

Happy crafting!

Sharon

    Fluffle is the cutest possible word for a group of bunnies. It makes me want to be right in the middle of it.

    • Sharon says:

      I know! The name is perfect! (I think bunnies aren’t always as sweet as they look, however. We had a mean one once, and he wouldn’t let you come near! Definitely not a fluffle bunny!) Happy crafting, Katiria. Sharon

  13. These are all totally adorable!! I adore the idea of a group of bunnies being called a fluffle! So apropo! If I am feeling better i might give the first 2 a try this weekend!! TFS!
