Any soft items such as windblown grasses, cattail down, a compressed hive, dry moss leaves, etc., will soften and protect the foot. Secondly, for the outer layer and a means of engulfing the foot, this is accomplished with sheets of birch bark, a slab of willow bark, a woven reed or birch layered mats, any firm encompassing material that is durable for a short time solution.
To keep these protective layers securely on the foot, any lashing items will suffice. This can come from a belt, string, duct tape or even a roller bandage. Maybe yarn from your sweater woven into cordage, a spruce root, making birch bark cord and many more options will give the securing needed.

I don't know where you are, but here in Texas, any rabbit you catch by hand during warm weather is probably suffering from tuleremia (cat scratch fever), which you can contract merely by skinning a diseased carcass. And EVERY carcass here is diseased, basically, unless there is snow on the ground.
. . . watch your step . . .
