Repurposed TOE SOCKS......



What can you do with TOE SOCKS besides wear them on your feet?

Yeah, sure, you can make cool gangsta signs when wearing them on your HANDS.....as my lovely assistant, Sydni is modeling right now.....




Better yet, you can cut off the toes and make WRIST WARMERS!!!

I decided to play around with a pair of the TOE SOCKS I got at Walgreen's for 3/$10.

After cutting off the toes....and saving them...because I'm sure there is something I can do with those cute snow flakes....I used a full 6 strand of embroidery floss and blanket stitched around the opening.

I then did....I THINK a slip stitch to help secure it from unraveling. (Because we all know I am a self teacher....no sewing lessons for me)

Added a button to make a thumb hole and THAT's IT!!!

The complete set was done in less than an hour.



(oh, and don't pay any mind to the lovely painted fingernails.....ewwwwwww)


I got this idea from http://foothillhomecompanion.blogspot.com/2008/02/repurposed-fingerless-gloves.html where she used old sweater sleeves. Since I don't have any old sweaters and I would probably pay about $3.00 at the thrift store, I decided to try the toe socks.

Oh, someone gave me these cute toe socks with purple stripes (3 or 4 different shades) that no one likes wearing-I am going to do this with them! What an adorable idea-Katy even said those were SO cute :) She loves wearing her sleeves over her hands, so I think the ones I make will be for her ;) Maybe you could let the fairies have the toes for stockings ;)
