So grab some old socks you already have (or order a cheap pack online), your favorite Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit, and check out this easy tutorial for making sweet little sock bunnies for spring.

What you need:

- Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Kit - Pretty Pastels or kit of choice

- Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint - White

- White 100% cotton socks

- Embroidery string - matching colors

- Disposable plastic cups

- Polyfil stuffing

- Scissors

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - mix dyes

Add water to each of the dye bottles you'll be using, replace caps and shake to mix.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - pour into cups

Once dyes are mixed, pour each color into its own disposable cup.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - dampen socks

If your socks are brand new, you'll want to wash them before dyeing (without fabric softener). Either way, make sure your socks are damp before dyeing.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - place socks in dye

Crumple up your socks and place one into each dye color.

You can even use a rubber band to bind the crumpled sock before placing in the dye, for added crumple dye effects. Let the socks sit in the dye for a while to soak it up.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - remove from dye and squeeze out excess

Once the socks have soaked in the dye for a while, wearing gloves, wring out the socks and place on a plastic-covered surface.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - let dyed socks process

Cover the socks with plastic and let set overnight for the dye to fully process.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - stuff with Polyfil

Once the socks have finished processing, rinse thoroughly and wash and dry according to dye instructions. Stuff each sock with Polyfil.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - tie with string

Tie a strand of embroidery string tightly around the halfway point of each sock to create the body and the head. Tie another just above the "head" at the base of the leg portion of the sock to create the section for ears. 

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - cut ears

Cut top portion of socks in a V shape to create ears.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - create faces

Use white Dimensional Paint to create a face and whiskers on each bunny sock.

Tulip Pastel Tie-Dye Sock Bunnies - let dry

Let bunny socks dry flat for several hours until paint has completely dried.
