I'm starting a new intiative in my classroom whereby good behavior earns a kid an entry in a drawing for whatever bizarre prize I can think up. To that end, I was finishing up a tie-dyed sock monkey this evening when it occurred to me that sock monkeys are a bit time-consuming, and I suddenly remembered a bunny pattern involving socks in a book my mom gave me.

I got out the book -- The Woman's Day Book of Soft Toys and Dolls by Joan Russell -- and found the pattern. I made slight modifications by using oversized plastic eyes, gecko-print ladies' socks, and a prefabbed acrylic pompom in place of the button eyes, gray children's socks, and handmade pompom tail and overstuffing the bunny slightly to give him a kind of alien look.

Here he is:







I think he looks sort of like a cross between an Uglydoll and the goofy one-eared rabbit from the Life in Hell cartoons.

In an odd coincidence, as I was getting on Craftster to post this, I noticed a familiar face and discovered that AlwaysInspired had used the very same book to create one of the beautiful Indian dolls I used to pore over as a child:

I'm not sure what the odds were on that, but I'm guessing you could probably use them to fuel the Heart of Gold from Betelgeuse to Milliway's. Wink
