TUTO : Plumetis socks

Let's go for a sewing tuto: feather duster socks 💃

Very quick to make, the only technical point is to use a plumetis a little stretchy: test its elasticity before choosing it because it is essential to be able to put the socks on :-) 

They will be a perfect bonus to add to your Christmas gifts!

👉Forthis DIY you need:

  • 50 x 50 cm of plumetis or tulle a little stretch
  • a sewing machine, pins, thread
  • A3 paper, chalk and scissors
  • optional: a small piece of fabric (20 x 20 cm) to create a foot piece and have more comfort

👉How todo :

Draw a quick pattern . You can use one of your socks to draw the heel, but at the front of the foot the line must be straight, so use the edge of your paper. Plan to be much wider than your foot: here our dimensions for a size 39 were 15 cm wide (at the widest point, at the heel) and 42 cm high.

Fold your fabric right sides together, making sure to have the stretch side facing the width. Pin the pattern , the side in a straight line all along the fold, leaving a margin at the top (about 10cm), to have the "accordion" effect on the ankle.

Cut all along the side opposite the fold, the part with the heel.

Open, place under your fabric the small coupon to create the toe, mark the outline, cut out.

Place on the back of your duster, pin. Then zig-zag stitch from one end to the other across the width as shown in the video. 

Then fold the whole thing right sides together again, pin, stitch in a tight zig-zag along the foot to the ankle. Trim excess fabric, turn over.

Do all this in duplicate of course 🙃...
