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

Picture of 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.
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.
