make a sock bunny.
Two friends and I spent a marvelous afternoon together several weeks ago. We brought socks, thread, stuffing, stories, and lots of laughter.
I used these instructions to make my sock bunny. Her name is Argyle:
It just took one sock to make her and I thought that I could easily make one of these for each of my nieces and nephews. That was a nice thought.
This craft afternoon all started as a result of a conversation that we had in January, where we ended up laughing uproariously over some of our ideas, like having a sock monkey ministry. But guess what? It's already happening - in Toronto, no less. Take a look!
My other friends were making sock monkeys from this pattern. Here is one, called Rainbow (clothing included on the second shot):
* paska making (Derek's Russian Mennonite heritage)
* egg cheese making (my Swiss Mennonite heritage)
* egg dying (Z+E's secular heritage) :)
* resurrection rolls (maybe those will be saved 'til tomorrow)
