workshop wednesday

reusing...or 'upcycling' socks.

I have a bag of lost socks.  J has a heavy heel, producing holes in the heel of socks, leaving the rest unworn.  I have trouble throwing these items out.  I have trouble throwing perceived still usable items out in general.  Yes, even socks with heel holes.  I suppose darning is an option, but these are 'sport' socks...
We had sometimes used socks as dusters.
And then, I got my wild idea.


miss matched and holey socks

cut off the toe, heel and top

I cut through the bottom of the sock top make better use of the less worn top

I haven't  figured out what to do with the toes, heels and tops though haha.
