Total Time 1 hour
Until we figure out where missing socks actually go when they vanish from our laundry baskets, here's a way to get some use from the singleton left behind.
What you'll need
- Spoon or funnel
- Dried lentils
- Child's sock
- Rubber band
- White pom-pom or cotton ball
- Tacky glue
How to make it
To make your own bunny beanbag, use a spoon or a funnel to add dried lentils to a child's sock, filling it up just past the heel. Close the sock with a tightly looped rubber band.
To create the head and neck, tie a ribbon around the sock just below the heel.
Use scissors to cut the sock's cuff into two ears, rounding the edges to give them the right shape.
Cut a nose, teeth, and eyes from felt. Attach the facial features and a white pom-pom or cotton ball tail with tacky glue.
