DIY: Iron-On Patch Socks

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.

Thankfully for me, showing your socks is finally back in fashion. From big cozy ones like these, to sexy sheer ones like these, showing your socks is all the rage.

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!

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.
