Sew Happy Friday – Quick-to-make Cozy Socks from Polar Fleece

 

Photo property of Tim Anderson

In honor of my readers in south-west Australia, it seemed like a good idea to post something they could make today to keep their feet warm as the “Antarctic Vortex” blows through. :-)

Here are instructions to make some warm, cuddly socks quickly with fleece.  You will have to draft your own pattern, but with the info provided, it looks fairly easy.  This would be a great way to use up fleece scraps or to upcycle a blanket that is getting tired but still has some good spots.  You may want to add some elastic around the top edge to keep them up better.

Note that you have to click the “next” button to continue reading the instructions.  There are three pages total.

  1. How sweet! This is such a cute idea, and thought of using a shamois or mooshide and sticth my hand too with sinew for a cute, simple moccasin. Thanks for this!! Merri

    1. That is a good idea! It would make a nice moccasin. You might have to adjust the pattern a little since there isn't much stretch in leather. I'm glad you were inspired. :-)
