TBC Crafters 34 – Repurposed Sock Bracelets

The credit of this week’s craft idea goes to my sweetie daughter. She has a pair of favorite socks. Even though both socks have a hole on the bottom and she actually has outgrown from them, she does not want to throw them away. She asked me on Sunday night why didn’t I make bracelets with the ripped socks. I pretended not knowing what she said,”How?” She showed it to me,”Cut that and put my hands in like this?” Of course, I knew what she meant and I told her that I would make one for her. As usual, I waited until she went to bed, I started my crafting project. In fact, this project should be called wristband rather than bracelet but my daughter calls it bracelet because she does not know the word “wristband” yet.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1) Cut the part from ankle to toe of a sock and save only the upper park with elastic band.

2) Sew a piece of laces with the part without elastic band. I created some ruffles which allows more flexibility and it looks more girly (my blog name!!!)

3) Done! You can wear it either way. This is my arm and hand, it seems a little bit tight.

4) There is another version that I made for my dear son. Cut a circle from a color felt sheet. Use needle and threads to create the arms of a watch. Sew a small button in the middle. Done!

I cannot wait to see the faces of my 2 little kids when they see the “bracelets” tomorrow.
