It’s the Bake, Craft & Sew Along —the sewing edition! Don’t forget to skip on over to According to Kelly to see some fun crafty non-sewing gifts and to A Southern Fairytale for edible goodies that will be perfect this holiday season.
Hi! I’m Mique from 30days – most often you can find me chasing after my 3 kids but on my down time I share anything craft related on 30days. I also host giveaways and product reviews there too. I’d love for you to stop by and say hi. I’m so excited to be involved in such an amaaazing handmade week.
For me I don’t have a hard time finding gifts for little girls and boys, but beyond on that I struggle. I think I have a little inexpensive idea that is super easy to make and could fit into a few gift giving categories- teens, techies, impossible to buy for guys, etc.
Today I’m sharing a super simple soft sock iPod, iPhone, or anything gadgety cozy (how’s that for a short name?). It would be perfect for all those single Ilosttheotheroneinthedryersomehow socks. Or you could buy a cute pair at the dollar spot at Target for, you guessed it, a dollar.
1 scrap piece of minky
(size depends on the size of the sock you’re using)
sewing machine & thread
printable card (below)
For starters, you’re going to measure your gadget.
From there, I placed my iPod on my sock and cut it in two,
assuring I had plenty of sock to work with.
Open the top half of your sock and lay it face down.
Cut enough minky to cover the sock (minus the top of the sock).
There are a few ways you could do the next step but I just folded about 1/4″ of minky and pin to the back side of the sock. Top stitch it in place. You only need to sew the top part because the sides will be sewn in the next step.
It will look like this.
Next fold sock right sides together and sew from just below the top of the sock (in my case the blue part) down the side and the bottom. It should look like this.
Ta-da- you have a super soft sock cozy. Easy as 1-2-3.
For a girl you could add a flower clip to the top to make it cute.
I would attach a card like this one:
You can right click & save & print on the
actual card here:
I think these would be good stocking stuffers or
to give with the gadget you’re giving.
Thanks so much to Cindy (and Kelly & Rachel)
for letting me join in on the fun!
I can’t wait to jump in and get busy on all these
projects- maybe this time I’ll be done before Christmas Eve.
