Super Cute Handmade Sock Bunny

imageimage

I made this super cute sock bunny for my nieces little baby girl….cute isn’t she??? 

Its super easy to make and who doesn’t have odd socks, I have loads of them I think my washing machine eats them 😀

So to make it you will need:

One childs sook

Ruler and Pencilssors

Rice (optinal)

Lavendar (optinal)

Toy stuffing filler

Sewing Machine

Matching Thread

Needle

Scissors

Embroidery Thread or Small Buttons for the Eyes

Ribbon

Pins

And this is how I made the Bunny……….

I turned the sock inside out and flattened it out with the heel facing up or towards you,

then with a ruler and pencil I marked the centre of the top of the sock and marked two bunny ears either side of the centre line,

once marked and I was happy with the shape of the ears I stitched around the ears leaving a 4cm gap for turning and stuffing,

I trimmed around the ears and turned it the right side out.

Then I decided that I wanted my bunny to be able sit nicely so I filled her bottom with rice, next some lavander and finally some toy stuffing filler, stuffing her ears first and getting them shaped into bunny shape ears next his tummy, neck and head.

Once stuffed I hand sewed the side closed using ladder stitch and placed a beautiful ribbon around her neck pulling fairly tight as this helped shape her head from his body giving her a neck 😀

I marked where I wanted her eyes and nose to go with pins and embroidered them on using satin stitch,

once finished I gave her a little massage to give her the right shape and that’s it, easy, cute and even better to cuddle.

Baby romper

Tonight’s make is from a New Look pattern 6636, I made pattern Aimage image And I thought this fabric was cute

so heres how I made it…….

image All pieces cut out and ready to go..

image First step was to sew inner leg pieces placing front and back right sides together and sew using a 1/3″ seam, once sewn press seam allowance back on its self.

image Next step was to sew front and back middle seams together and once again press seams back on its self ( starting to look like its a romper now)

imageNext insert the zipper ….. Not my favourite thing to do, was very glad once it was in place a little wonky but in place.

imageSleeves  are up next, I decided to use bias-binding on the cuff edge, then I hand wound my bobbin with elastic thread & gave it a go with the sewing machine, I would of crossed my fingers at this point but I need them, it turn out pretty well just a little bit of pulling on the elastic just to get it to gather just right.

imageVery nice I think

image I then pinned the sleeve to the sleeve hole starting at the shoulder seam and moving down each side fitting it just right, sew using a 1/3″ seam.

imageNext its time for the bootie part, I’m now feeling fairly confident so this should be a breeze right? …

yeah I don’t think so…. It kinda fiddly, the only tip for this one is to go slowly when sewing.

image It looks cute when sewn though.

imageI joined the bootie to the bottom of the leg piece using the elastic thread and that is it finished, turn right side out give it a press with the iron and stand back and admire.

imageVery cute , I can hardly wait to see my nieces baby in it, just few months to wait though as she’s still keeping warm in her mummy’s tummy xx
