Simple Fleece Socks

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 254 Posts

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




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


  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.


  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. Match up the side seams from the front and back and sew down each side.
  10. Next match up the straight edges of the front and bottom and sew all the way around.

  12. Fold over the top edge about 1/2 inch and sew a hem, stretching out the fabric as you sew.
  13. Turn the sock right side out.
  14. Sew the second sock the same as the previous.

Quick and easy: Try a rubber band and fold the top of each sock over the band. Wah-la
Takes more time but permanent: Fold over the top of each sock and sew down along edge. Pre-measure thin elastic around the area where socks hit on your leg, then feed it thru the sewn circled top of each sock.


Sew closed the elastic, then sew each hole you fed the elastic through closed. Enjoy!

Did you ever figure out how to keep them up? I did not try the project yet but that was my concern.
Thanks, Terri

Turn down a small "hem" to insert narrow elastic. Sew it at the ends and close the hem.

Thank you for posting this. I made a pair for myself. This was my first sewing project on my new machine. I had never used a sewing machine before.


Now I am going to make a pair for each of my family members. So much better than $15/pair for me & $8/pair for my kids.

You could use hot glue to put dots on the bottom so they would be less slippery.
