Yesterday I was about to throw away a handful of my daughter's tights. I was so upset how quickly they wore holes into the bottom part leaving the stocking part still in great shape. I felt a little guilty throwing them away.
So instead I made them into socks. I know socks and tights don't cost much, but I am trying to make things last longer instead of being wasteful and throwing things away.
I had fun making their "new" socks. I dressed them up with some bows too. They will look so cute wearing them with their dresses and skirts! And it only took me about 20 minutes to make 5 pairs.
I got this idea from Ruffles And Stuff. The only difference is is that I folded the material again over the elastic. So the elastic would have a casing and wouldn't touch their skin. I thought it might bother them if it did and this way there were no open seams either so no chance of the material unraveling.
