Here is another great gift idea for the crafty person on your list! Alternatively this makes a great book for yourself so you can make these cute gifts for the people on your list!
I just love the selection of books that Stash Books has to offer. They have great ideas, are well written and they’re original. Here is yet another great book from them, Socks Appeal.
Look at how adorable these sock projects are! These will make such cute stocking stuffers and gift ideas. You can turn your favorite socks into adorable bunnies, kittens, hamsters, turtles, penguins, and more! The 15 projects are categorized by skill level, from super-simple to more advanced so you don’t need to worry if you are a beginner like me!
Got an hour and a sock without a match? Then you can create one of these adorable projects! I know that my dryer eats socks like candy so I have lots of socks to choose from. Now I finally have a use for them!
Enjoy making whimsical stuffed animals using baby socks, knee socks, crew socks…any kinds of socks rock! Give your critter’s face plenty of creative expression by embellishing with your favorite buttons and embroidery. Several projects are easy enough for children to make for their own toybox, but you’ll want a bunch of these irresistible cuties for yourself, too!
Not convinced yet that this is easy to do? Check out this completely FREE pattern HERE!
Why I love it: Thanks to this book I finally have a good use for those socks without a match! I can put my sock stash to good use! These projects are cute and great stocking stuffers too (no pun intended!). The book is well written and gives projects of varying skill levels.
Suggestions for improvement: None, I love Socks Appeal!
Buy It! You can buy Socks Appeal on C&T Publishing’s website. They also have an eBook version available!
