Cute and Trendy Lace Trim Socks

When I saw Stampin' Up!'s new 1" Dotted Lace Trim in the trendy, new In Colors, I immediately thought how fabulous it would look as a decorative trim on clothing. On a scale of 1 to 10, my sewing skills are about -5, but these cute trimmed socks are as easy as pie and really quick to make. Come and see!

Aren't they the cutest thing ever?! Let’s have a look at them in action!

and Cucumber Crush (item # 138423).

Phew! All this jumping around and I still don’t know which one is my favorite! Here are some simple instructions for making them yourself.

  • Fit one of the socks over a 1-1/2–2 litre bottle.
  • Pin the lace trim around the top of the sock.
  • Hand sew along the join, then all around the center of the lace.
  • Pull the sock off the bottle and finish with a few stitches inside the sock.
  • Repeat with the other sock to make a pair!
