How to Make a Sock Rabbit Baby

Sock rabbit sock bunnies make cute Easter gift ideas and fun Easter crafts...Most baby sock 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.

To make a single baby-sock sock rabbit you'll need:

  • 1 baby sock
  • 1/4 cup rice
  • 2 rubber bands (clear or same color as sock)
  • 1 matching pom pom for tail or matching yarn to make your own pom pom tail
  • Ribbon for a neck bow or fabric for a scarf
  • Crafts supplies for the bunny face, such as: googly eyes, buttons, beads, marker, memory wire for the whiskers (or embroidery thread pulled apart will work) etc
  • Optional: 1 large plastic Easter egg to hide the bunny

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.

Step-by-Step How to Make a Sock Rabbit from a Baby Sock:

  1. Stretch the sock over a wide mouth funnel.
  2. Start making your sock rabbit by filling the baby sock with 1/4 cup rice...Fill baby sock with 1/4 cup rice. You may need to work it in with your fingers if the sock is on the smaller side.
  3. Squish the rice filled part of the sock into a ball and secure snugly with a rubber band.
  4. Use your fingers to mold the ball of rice into a body and head. Secure the neck with a rubber band... not too tight unless you want a bobble headed baby bunny. You can cover up this rubber band with a bow or scarf.
  5. Cut the top portion in half vertically. Trim off the top corners of each strip and shape like bunny ears (in other words... a leaf shape).

    Make your sock rabbit's ears by cutting the top strip vertically and then shaping each side to look like a leaf...
  6. A hot glue gun will make it super quick and easy to put together a darling little sock rabbit face...Now it's the fun part! Using a hot glue gun (hot glue gun works best) or fast drying fabric glue, create your bunny’s face using things like buttons, beads, googly eyes or markers.


    ...I like to use giant googly eyes for my baby sock bunnies!

    My sock rabbit has giant googly eyes and whiskers made of memory wire......String or memory wire works great for the whiskers. Simply cut four strands of memory wire. Take one strand and wrap it around the three strands right in the center. This will hold the whiskers together and make a cute little bunny nose.

    ...Another fun thing to do is to make two big bunny teeth with white felt. This will give your sock rabbit a silly look.

  7. Your bunny needs a tail. Use a matching craft pom pom or a cotton ball to make a little bunny tail. Or... I like to make my own pom pom tails using yarn. Here's my bunny's cute little bums...

Use pom poms to make your sock bunny rabbit tails...You can also give your sock rabbits homemade pom poms made from yarn...

If you'd like to make a pom pom bunny tail...

DIY Bunny Bums... It's easy to make a custom pom pom bunny bum out of yarn. Wrap yarn around two or three fingers several times. The thicker you wrap, the thicker the pom pom will be. I made a rather loose pom pom here, you can wrap as thick as you want. Locate the center and wrap a piece of yard around, securing with a knot. Cut through both sides of loops right at the end of each loop. Fluff pom pom. Glue to bunny bum for a cute little bunny tail.

You are all done!
