Making an Easter Bunny in one hour--for moms with little time

I wanted to make a bunny rabbit for my son's Easter Basket. It had to be quick, easy and cute. So I looked around and found some great ideas but most were too time consuming. So i made my own up and it really did take about an hour to make. Like Manic mommies saying "doing it all and then some"... http://manicmommies.com/


So we took some old socks, turned them inside out and cut in the middle of the toe for the ears. I used a sewing machine to sew the ears, much faster. I then stuffed the bunnies and closed the bottom with a hand stitch. You can play with this to get it how you want. Then the eyes either just buttons or a circle of felt under the button and sew both on at once. Then mouth and nose and voila..you are finished!

See photos below.
