Simple Fleece Socks

These socks are great as an extra layer while moseying around the house and also make a great gift.

Supplies:

  • 1/2 a yard of colorful fleece
  • sewing machine

Sizing:

  1. These socks are made to fit a size 8 (US) woman's shoe size. You will want to adjust smaller or larger depending on the size of the person. If you draw around the foot for a template, add about an inch all around the drawing for the bottom piece. The fleece does "give" a little.
  2. For the back, measure to the desired height and add a inch.
  3. For the front, start measuring to the desired height down over the instep to the toes and add an inch. Depending on the height desired, keep in mind that they may need to go over the calf which will require the pieces to be wider at the top.

Directions:

  1. These socks are made up of three pieces each. The first being the bottom which will measure approximately 10 inches long, 6 inches at it's thickest width (heel), and 4 inches at its skinniest (toes). Rounded on each end gradually getting skinnier towards one end.
  2. Cut fleece pieces for socks.

  3. The second piece is the back. It should measure approximately 6 inches wide and 11 inches long. Rounded on one end.
  4. The third piece is the front. It should measure approximately 6 inches wide and 20 inches long and rounded on one end.
  5. Match up the curved edges of the bottom and back (heel) and sew around the semi circle.
  6. Heel seam, sewing bottom to back.

  7. Match up the curved edges of the bottom (toe) and the the front and sew around the semi circle (for the toe).
  8. Toe seam.

  9. Fold over the top edge about 1/2 inch and sew a hem, stretching out the fabric as you sew.

  10. Sew the second sock the same as the previous.
  11. Polka dot fleece socks.
