    18" Doll Socks - EASY!

    I saw these socks made on several websites. Today I finally made them for my granddaughter, Ruby. Each pair of socks took one girls sock and took less than five minutes altogether. I expected it to be hard to turn inside out but it wasn't.

    Here is the website where I got the directions.

    These would be great to make from girls socks that little granddaughters have outgrown!

    This is great when one sock gets lost - don't throw away the remaining one!

    I know my grandchildren have lots of socks that no longer have a mate. Great use for them.

    Be sure to ask for your granddaughter's socks that have lost their mate. These pair of socks only take one girl's sock to make.

    Here are a few boxes that would be nice. My favorite that I buy for my DGD are the ones sold at JoAnn's with decorative paper and a fold over lid that has a magnetic closure. I buy those with a 40 or 50% off coupon.

    You are sew welcome. I recently bought $1 socks at my local grocery store. Can't wait to make more for my DGD. She loves them.
