sock wrist warmers

Transform socks into warmers 


This is a simple tutorial how to transform socks into wrist-warmers.

You need a pair of socks.
Cut off the toes part.

 Turn the sock with the heel part upwards.
Gather the part where the heel is, pin it and hand stitch it.


 Add a decorative button.



Add some lace or ribbon.
This is important.
You have to insert a tailor's ham inside before you stitch the lace.
If you don't have a tailor's ham insert another pair of socks or a small pillow.
Something that will expand the sock. Then (hand) stitch the lace.
Or use  large plastic drink bottle
 Your new, fabulous wrist warmers.
