Sock bunny

My goal of 4 upcycled projects this week is complete.

This bunny is made from a worn pair of wool socks.

I basically followed this tutorial from Craft Passion. I patched a worn spot, cut around others, and left some for character.  I omitted the button eyes and used felt instead.

 

 

 My mother wore out this pair of Smartwool socks.  She has a hard time parting with quality and loves Smartwool.  I suppose my fabric hoarding may come from my mother.

We decided he needed a tie for Easter, so I made one from yellow seersucker to match Daphne's Easter outfit. 

 

 I think this guy's tie is adorable.  He still hasn't been named yet.

 Hand stitching doesn't feel tedious when done enjoying a beautiful day in a rocking chair.

This was a fun project. I had some alone time (alone time? What's that? If my child napped I could have more of this!) on a beautiful day and did the hand stitching on my balcony.
