Sock!

So this morning was really cold and so I was looking for some socks, which didn’t want to be found. I remembered I had a couple of pieces of white fleece that I had no plans for. So I decided to make some fleece socks!
I just measured around my ankle (9.25″) added a 3/4 of an inch (1/4″ seam allowance) and then measured my foot from toe to heel up to where I wanted on my calf (18″) and cut 2 rectangles (10″ x 18″) out of the fleece. I sewed the long side up so I had a tube, then I sewed the toe, trimmed the corner and turned it inside out. I did the same to the other rectangle and slipped them on my feet and they’ve been warm ever since. They did feel a bit strange when I first put them on but they feel great now. It took maybe 15 minutes from beginning to end. I wouldn’t try this with anything but a stretchy material.
