This may be TMI but…my feet sweat. My feet sweat enough that I can’t wear any shoes that have open air spots but would still be considered shoes over sandals. You know, ones like these. If I do, by the end of the day, all of the moisture has collected so much dirt, you would think that I was walking barefoot in the tar pits. Nice visual, huh? So I gotta keep that ish covered.
And while perusing the craft store the other day, I found some stinking cute patches that were calling to me. They said something like, “Hey lady! Why don’t you take me home, sandwich me between a sock and a thin cloth napkin, turn the heat up, and then wear me around like the fancy lady you are?”
And I was like, “That is very forward of you, little patches. But yes. I would indeed like that.”
So here is how you can make your own Iron-On Patch Socks!
You will need:
- plain socks
- Cute patches (stick with 1inch or less)
- An iron
- A thin cloth
Place the patch where you want it on the sock.
STEP 2: Cover with a thin cloth.
STEP 3: Iron for 15-20 seconds on high-heat. Make sure to press down and keep the iron moving so you dont burn your cloth.
STEP 4: Flip the sock inside out and iron again using the cloth cover for 20-25 seconds.
STEP 5 (optional): Hand stitch the edges for extra-hold.
Have fun! And let me know how it goes!
