heart knee sock DIY


heart knee socks

We have to admit, we both generally aren't the kind of people who get super into holidays. I think this blog might be changing us though... And to kick off our new selves we are having two full weeks of valentine-y goodness. We showed off our ability to throw together Valentines outfits yesterday, here is a cute Valentines craft for you to try.

We love fun printed tights and socks and loved the idea of making our own. Turns out, it is super easy to make heart knee socks! Here is how:

013

You'll need: the fabric of your choice, a pair of thigh high socks, embroidery floss, scissors, and a needle & thread.

Start by cutting two hearts out of your fabric, mine were about 3 inches by 3 inches.

Next you'll place them on the knee of your socks. Make sure that they are in the exact right place before you start sewing. You can pin them in place and put them on to test them out if you wish.

Once you have your heart right where you want it, you can begin sewing around the outside. I slid a bit of cardboard between the two layers so that I wouldn't accidentally sew the two sides together. It helped a lot. Tie a knot and then you are done! So easy, right?

Once you are done you can wear them around in all your valentine-y adorableness, you can even match them to the fabric of your dress like we did for Erin. Doesn't she look so cute?
