Turn a Worn Out Sock Into an Electronics Sleeve





Introduction: Turn a Worn Out Sock Into an Electronics Sleeve

Do you throw out your socks when they're worn through? Well this instructable will show you how to save the good part and reuse it to hold your various portable electronics. Perfect for protecting iPods, digital cameras, etc.

Step 1: Cut

First thing to do is remove the bad part of the sock. Really... everything below the ankle. Keep the top half and do what you please with the rest.

Step 2: Sew

Flip the remaining tube inside out and stitch across the bottom. I used a machine, but thats not really necessary. I recommend a zigzag stitch, it'll just hold a bit firmer.

Step 3: Enjoy!

Flip it back right side out, and enjoy your new electronics sleeve!

    I had some very thick wool socks that I had worn through on the heels. I cut off the top like here, ran a piece of quilting thread (any strong thread would do) through the cut end and use it on my glass of iced tea in the summer. Now it catches all the moisture rather than pooling up on the coasters.

    I failed to say I pull that piece of strong thread tight so it gathers up the fabric so it will fit flat on the bottom of my glass.

    I bet noone has tried to do this with fap socks.

    Yeah, I noticed that after I posted it. *shrug* so much for being original.

    Still a great idea, but overdone. Good one though.
