Make Container Covers from Old Socks

For that daughter going to college, and has sorted her socks with the colorful tops. Hope you have saved them. You can slip glass, plastic, or cardboard containers (whatever they will stretch around) into them for handy organizers. This gives them a little piece of home without being too obvious to others. If she is into jogging, make wrist bands out of them. Cut off the foot part with pinking shears. Run a stitch used for elastic around the raw edge after you turn it under. Good luck to her, and to you, if you are an empty-nester now.

They also make nice "sweat" sleeves for your icy drink.
