Introduction: Sugru Sliding Sock Fix
Sugru sliding sock fix (executed at Omaha Makers' Group-OMG)Low-cut socklets, the kind that look like little ballet slippers, are so cut--up until you discover they only stay up for about 20 steps; and then the backs end up under your arches--very frustrating! Walk, stop, remove sock, pull up sock, replace shoe, repeat, repeat, repeat. Enter Sugru! Materials/supplies: 1 pair low-cut, no-show socks, SUGRU, Styrofoam block, straight pins, safety pin, fingers.
Step 1: Pin socks to foam, inside up, heel portion flat, remainder of socks out of the way.
Step 2: Take a nickel-sized gob of Sugru, roll into a ball, and flatten into oblong shape.
Step 3: Press sugru into fabric at inside back of socks, spreading to about 1.5" to about 3/4" high.
Step 4: Add texture. (I used a closed safety pin)
Step 5: Allow to cure 24 hours. (Optional: If sugru has pulled away from sock, secure loose edges with needle and thread.)
