I had a bunch of old Tumpette socks left over from when my kids were babies. It's a pity that they don't come in big girl and boy sizes. Anyway, I was holding on to them for no reason, except that they are super cute.
Finding a good second home for them is nice. The kids at camp went crazy for this easy project and I thought your little sewers might too. You don't need to use baby socks, any size will do.
Holden will show you how to make one:
You need a sock, sewing supplies, and beans (rice or dried noodles will work too).
Step 1: Fill the bottom part of the sock with the beans. Feel it to make sure you like the amount - you don't want it too big or too small.
I like how the pink SockAround was folded in neatly and sewn with a whipstitch.
Have fun sockin' around!
