Hop to It Sock Bunny Tutorial

I recently saw a sock bunny a crafty lady made over at Tip Junkie (great blog to check out!). I liked the idea, but I wanted one that was more in an upright position. Looking at a sock, this idea came very quickly to me. It was really fast to make as well. This is an especially good project if you have some socks that have lost its partner.
