Yes! It’s late! I am JUST getting to my blog! I am not sure where today went, I would hope it went down in history but eh….not too sure about that! Unless I would get an award for being stressed and cleaning! (whudduyah think)
I feel a little “uneventful” today!
But your craft is here at your command… (fist bumping)
This craft is totally fun! It was MAJOR easy and just think how awesome these will be as gifts for the holidays!
Some of the ingredients you will need are:
~Scrap piece of cardboard
~Needle and thread (optional)
~and lots of LOVE
To start off I just freehandedly cute out some organic shapes from the felt. You will not need them right now but it’s much easier later on in the project if they are already done.
(You can also choose the buttons you want, I never pick the same ones. It makes them more interesting). FYI: You do not need to do this if you want to make them simple and plain, or if you think the person your doing them for will not like this added effect.
Next step you want to do is put the socks onto your feet. Stand on a piece of cardboard, and trace both of your feet with a pencil; cut your cardboard along the lines that you just traced.
Remove the socks. You can use a marker or a sewing pencil to trace the templates onto the sueded fabric and fusible webbing, which is a material that bonds fabrics together. When you are done you will cut them out the same way you did with the cardboard.
When you are done with that you will slide the cardboard cutouts into the your sock, positioning them where you want to iron on new soles.
Place fusible webbing between your sueded fabric and sock’s sole; iron according to webbing directions.
As you can see all I did to spice up my sock is take my pieces of cut out felt and a button then sewed it at the top of my sock. VOILA….
End result!! FABULOUS RIGHT!!! They are super cute, super fun and super chic…..Don’t forget to send me pictures of yours!
