DIY Christmas Stockings from Vintage Wool Baby Socks

Being a grandmother for the first time this summer
gave me a new appreciation for baby clothes.
How to Make Christmas Stockings from Vintage Wool Baby Socks

As the mother of four girls, I was especially excited about buying baby boy clothes for the first time. 

In a bag of hand-me-down baby clothes I was surprised to find a few pairs of vintage baby socks.

The socks had such a beautiful vintage texture and color.

Who in the world would even think of putting these wool socks on the baby? They were headed for Grandma's craft room for sure! I decorated each sock with red ribbons of all kinds and vintage buttons and bows.

With just a simple glue gun I easily added buttons, pearls, and bows.

  1. I'll bet you'll find something for those baby toes.

  2. Several years ago I was in Beaune France and wandered upon a flea market. At that market I bought a large box of what I would call "Lace bits". One of the bits in box was a babies sock, just one. I thought I had thrown it away, but while packing I found it. It is now labelled with a tag so that when I unpack boxes late next year I can do something like you have done to yours. When I do do it, I will make sure to blog about it and give you credit for the inspiration.
