Picture of Transforms Socks Into Warmers

When I saw these beige - gray speckled socks I knew I had to have them. They are kids' size but that was exactly what I needed for this project.

This is a simple tutorial how to transform socks into wrist-warmers.

You need a pair of socks.

Step 1: Cut Toes' Part

Cut off the toes part.

Step 2: Work on Sock

Turn the sock with the heel part upwards.
Gather the part where the heel is, pin it and hand stitch it.

Step 3: Decorate

Add a decorative button.

Step 4: Stitch Some Lace

This is important.
You have to insert a tailor's ham inside before you stitch the lace.
If you don't have a tailor's ham insert another pair of socks or a small pillow.
Something that will expand the sock. Then (hand) stitch the lace.

Step 5: You're Done

Enjoy your new lovely warmers!

These are so beautiful! The whole thing just goes together so well: the color of the socks, the lace, the button; perfect :)

I must say I agree! These have been my favourite for the past two years! Thank you on the sweet comment Penolopy
