BUNNY KIT BAGS
My god daughter Lucy turned 8 just before Christmas and today was her ‘official’ birthday party. She invited four special friends to her house for a Sock Bunny making party. I had the pleasure of being Chief Bunny Maker and Lucy’s Mum was Assistant Bunny Maker.
DEMO BUNNY & KITS READY TO START
All the girls had a bag of bunny body bits, stuffing, a needle and a ‘made by’ badge. They listened very carefully and soon got stuck into to pushing the stuffing into bunny legs, ears, bottoms, bodies and faces – we used chopsticks to help get into the little nooks and crannies. It’s quite a fiddly process and the girls made excellent jobs of creating their bunny bodies.
BUNNY BODY STUFFING
Next we were ready to start sewing. The task was to attach bunny head to bunny body. I gave a short demo of how to do this part and again they were all very attentive and keen to get going. They did brilliantly with their sewing and we had a lovely set of bunnies all ready to have their faces put on.
BUNNIES WAITING FOR FACES
After all that busy activity it was time for a lunch break. Chicken nuggets, sausages, crispy items, lots of lovely triangle sandwiches – we had to fight for the egg ones as young Paige was a bit of an egg sandwich fiend! We got away with only one drink being knocked over, fortunately just missing the bunnies in the corner – I think I soaked up most of it! Lunch over – time to choose faces & chop up some socks to make hats and clothes.
BUTTONS, BEADS, POMPOMS & FELT
And here are the results of the girls’ hard work. Aren’t they good – each one completely different with its own little character. Great bunnies and a really lovely group of girls – very polite, well behaved and of course talented…

CHLOE made by Birthday Girl LUCY (with demo bunny Katie)
I think Willow the family dog was feeling a little bit left out as she brought her own soft toy along for a photograph!
WILLOW with her own bunny!
A big thank you to Lucy for letting me be Chief Bunny Maker, thank you to the Assistant Bunny Maker for being a brilliant helper and lunch maker and an equally big thank you to Eleanor, Ella, Paige and Louise for being such delightful young Bunny Makers. I hope you all had a good time. 🙂
