What you need
- Old Baby Socks
- String (preferably decorative, I used a white one from a gift bag...looked great)
- About 4 cotton balls
- Button (something that would look good with the socks)
- Glue gun
I made this for my husband for his 1st father’s day, using our first born son’s first socks. Lot’s of firsts!
What you do is you take the string and you tie a bow in the middle so that there is even amount of string hanging down from the bow.
Then you take the socks and put the ends of the bow inside either sock at the back part (by the heel and up).
Once you know how deep you want the string to go in you simple take your glue gun and glue the string to the inside of the sock at the heel.
Turn the sock inside out and glue the string that’s already in the sock to the back.
Once it’s dry, insert two cotton balls into either sock. Make it look pretty 🙂
Then you glue the opening of the sock shut.
Finally, you glue the button onto the center of the bow. And you’re ready to hang it off your rear view mirror as constant reminder of the little one who loves you so much!
P.S…You can sew it if you want, but glue is just fine.
