Holey Socks! (if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em)

I’m so not a ‘socks’ person. They either get lost, or they get holes in the toes. I guess if you were to actually fold them once they got out of the dryer, it would be fine. But the person who thinks I’m going to do that, probably never met me before. Since I was cutting up jeans, I thought it would be fun to get a little sidetracked and start cutting up my socks and tights. It dawned on me that destroying my clothes can make some pieces a little more functional.

And just as an experiment, here’s a little video of how to do it. I sound kind of spacey… but that’s just how I sound.

    Wow, very cute and creative! My problem with socks is that I always seem to lose one of them, so maybe I should see how this would look with a mismatched pair…

    I totally made some of these a few years ago out of a holey pair of men’s spiderman socks I had! I love them, especially paired with shoes that showed off the stirrup nature

    I have an irrational fear of socked feet. It has something to do with how odd the toes look in a sock— I know its weird! So, cutting socks into stirrups makes everything a lot more tolerable. This may actually mean I’ll wear socks this year!

    I am making sure to say hi! :-)

    aww, thanks fenke!

    @camilla… ooh! i have the same problem, actually, my prototype sock was a single. so you better show pics!

    @ashe~ SPIDERMAN SOCKS!!!!
    @chelsea rae~ you and me both.
    @hailey… ooh wordpress can be painful sometimes, but if you just paste the code in ‘html view’ it should work, i think there are more ways, i just don’t know them.

    Hahah! I am the quintessential no-socks gal. I used to dance, so I’m quite in the habit of using baby powder with shoes in place of socks. However, I LOOOOVE this idea. You’re so crafty. I’m going to try it out, and send photos…when I buy socks, that is!

    I am a sock whore (although I don’t wear them if I can help it). This is such a great idea for the unfortunate ones that get holes! (frequently my faves)…so cute
