Sock rabbit baby bunnies are super stinkin' cute!... that much is clear.
As if that's not enough reason to make them, they also happen to use up all those cute little mismatched baby socks some of us have lying around...
...The ones that get separated from their match by the sock monster, who apparently loves to eat baby socks above all other socks.
If you don't have baby socks lying around that's ok! You can find them at thrift stores and dollar stores, making this a fun and cheap homemade gift idea.
Sock bunny babies are also especially F-U-N sock animals because they are the perfect size for hiding in large plastic Easter eggs.
They make a fantastic surprise for Easter egg hunts! ...Or, they can be nestled inside Easter baskets for a unique treat.
Young or old, who wouldn't like to discover an itty bitty cute little sock bunny baby hiding in their Easter eggs? Anyway...

If you know somebunny that might like to make their own baby-sock sock rabbit, check out these fun little sock bunny craft kits. I used baby food jars for mine and they were a perfect fit!
Below you'll find instructions for making your own Easter rabbit baby sock animals and more photos to warm your bunny lovin' heart.
Most baby socks will work for this idea. I've used newborn baby socks through 6 month baby socks and they all worked great.
As long as you fill them with about 1/4 cup rice (no more), they seem to fit inside the large Easter eggs perfectly.
If you use newborn baby socks you will have to work the rice in with your fingers, but socks are stretchy so it's really no problem.
Tools: Scissors, measuring cup, wide mouth funnel, hot glue gun or fabric glue
Tip... I recommend a hot glue gun for both quicker and more permanent assembly.
...Using a hot glue gun (hot glue gun works best) or fast drying fabric glue, create your bunny’s face using things like:
*memory wire or thread
You are all done! Give your homemade baby sock rabbit inside a large Easter egg, in an Easter basket... you could even slip one in a Christmas stocking, if you know someone who just loves bunnies.
