These are so easy to make and my daughter loves them! I made her about 12 pairs a couple years ago but she’s starting to outgrow them so I need to make more. I thought I’d do a quick tutorial while I was at it.
I start by turning the sock inside out. Then I fold the edge of the ribbon over and line it up with the middle of the back of the sock. To make it ruffle you need to stretch the sock as you sew. The more you stretch the more it gathers. To get a good ruffle you really need to stretch it as much as possible. I didn’t stretch the first pair I ever made enough and it was hard to get them on because the ribbon didn’t give.
Then clip your threads and turn the sock right side out. You can easily make several pairs in an hour. I just need to run to the store to get more colors of ribbon. I’m hoping Hobby Lobby has their ribbon on sale soon!
