Cute and trendy lace trimmed socks gift

When I saw Stampin' Up's new Dotted Lace Trim in the trendy new in-colours, I immediately thought how fabulous it would look on clothing. On a scale of 1-10 my sewing skills are about -5 but these cute trimmed socks are as easy as pie and really quick to make too! Come and see:




Aren't they the cutest thing ever?! Let's take a look at them in action!



These are the socks in cool Mint Macaron but I also made them in…


Delightful Dijon,


Watermelon Wonder


and Cucumber Crush. Phew! All that leaping about and I just don’t know which is my favourite!

Would you like to know how I made these? 

LACE TRIMMED SOCKS TUTORIAL
Here’s what you’ll need:

Stampin’ Up Dotted Lace Trim
Plain white socks
Needle and white thread
An empty 1 or 1.5 litre bottle

Here’s what to do:


First fit the sock over the bottle to stretch out the top.


Wrap Dotted Lace trim round the top of the sock, overlapping by 1cm (1/2”) and pin into place.


Simply hand sew into place along the centre of the ribbon, and along the join, using a tiny stitch at the top and a longer running stitch at the back of the sock. 


Pull the sock off the bottle and finish with a few stitches at the back. Repeat the steps above for the other sock.

TIP: Make sure the join is on the inner ankle of each sock for a neat finish.



What a bouquet of socklets!

Life is a funny old business isn't it? I made these socks for my daughter, who would have been outraged if I'd suggested she wore something so girlie when she was an adorable little tot. Fast forward to 2015, and, as a student living in trendy Manchester, she was delighted with her gift!

See you tomorrow,
