Move over sock monkey! These little sock bunnies are so easy and cute!  All you need is some nice knee high socks and some simple sewing supplies. I sewed mine on a machine but they can be easily hand stitched too!

If you are making them for a child under the age of 3, just stitch eyes on instead of using buttons so that there won’t be a choking hazard.

Step 1: Cut the foot of one of the socks right down the middle, but don’t cut all the way to the heel. The heel will become the face of the bunny and you want to leave about an inch before the face:
