DIY Boot Socks

I'm so excited about fall. Something about wearing jackets and boots just makes me giddy. 

So, I decided to make some lacey boot socks. 



Aren't they great? They were so easy, too.

All I needed was a pair of tall socks, some lace, thread (preferably in a matching color, but all I have was mint green (huh?) oops!), and a needle!



After I had all the supplies, I put the socks on to see where they would hit in my boots. Then, I just sewed the lace on by hand while still wearing the sock so I could make sure I got the lace on the right spot.

                         

I poked myself a few times, but I'd say it was worth it!

    @anonymous, I found them at TJ Maxx! I was pretty pleased because I'm the worst at shopping there because I can never find anything.

  19. I love love love these but how do you wash them? Would the lace not be as stiff after washing?

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Audra, I just washed mine today, so you're in luck!

    They held up great. It may have been because the lace I used was pretty thick, though. I think that it helped that I form fitted the lace pretty close to the size of my leg. That way, the lace stays up! The boot also does a great job of adding extra support.

    Hope that helps!
