Like most awesome inventions these DIY No Slip Sox were born out of necessity. Ok, so these aren't necessarily an invention. I did not invent the sock, thank you that gal (you know it was a female...her little one's toes were probably super chilly so she weaved some wool and knitted up some foot and toe covers, thus socks were born! I have no idea if that's really what happened but it is in my mind) ;) I also did not invent the fabric paint. But I did come up with these on the fly when Buggie ate it in the kitchen 7 times in a row in a matter of like 1 minute and 30 seconds!!!
We all have the store bought grippy socks with the fun little dots or some have designs. Buggie even has a few pair. It's not that they are horribly expensive but what if all of your grippy socks are dirty and you just can't stop falling down?!? Then do this! You probably have everything you need at home.
Super cheap, super fun and SUPER CUTE!!!
Here we go...
Pair of Socks
Out of the box thinking
|Slip small piece of cardboard or wax paper in between the sock layers to protect the other side from paint and to keep them from drying shut :)|
|Choose your fabric paint. I don't know how long I have had this stuff but it says it's dimensional fabric paint - but it's not puffy paint. I have no clue!|
Here is another very cute pair.
I just love the 2 color combo, the possiblities are endless!
There you go. An easy, fast and very rewarding, no sew project.
