Coordinating Thread and Needle
To begin, try on the socks with the shoes you plan to wear. Make note of where the shoes and straps cover the socks. You’ll want to avoid attaching anything in those areas. Next, open a sock to the front and lay out your design. Experiment with different placements of the buttons and ribbon accessories. We used a random placement and added some smaller buttons on top of the foot for some extra sparkle.
Using the needle and thread, begin sewing on the buttons and accessories following your layout. Copy the layout onto the other sock. For this project, sewing the embellishments works better than gluing them. Be sure to hand wash and air dry your gorgeous socks to keep all the embellishments in great shape.
These socks also make great gifts for your girlfriends. Consider embellishing only the areas near the top of the sock so they can wear them with any shoes.
