Socks Upcycling

There are so many ways you can reuse those old socks - from tying them together to make a skipping rope, to putting your hand inside them to use as a car cleaning cloth!
Wiki How has a list of 31 uses for old socks.

You've all heard of sock monkeys, and there are heaps out there with some great tutorials; like this lovely short and clear video from Kidspot:

I also found a tutorial for Sock Skeletons - perfect for Halloween which is just around the corner!!

Here's a nice simple refashion..

For LOTS more cool sock upcycling ideas, you can go to my

Happy Upcycling!
