Default Crude example, but it works.

I posted that I would show pix of my self=made sock holder..sorry to be this late, but that mean ole flu knocked me down. This was made from a coat hanger with needle=nose pliers and the electrical thingmajigs on the ends. I made 2 of these--diff sizes. They worked. Then I learned about pinning to stabilizer-duh!--but this was 10/15 yrs ago, I think. The sock hoops are not really necessary...you can do the pinning and accomplish the embroidery. Anyway, my crudely made appliances:
