Oh My Socks! I Have to Save Those!

2013-02-14 12

Sometimes, socks needs new life!

Never happen your socks needs some patching? Me too. But what if it’s too late for a patch?
Well, i will show you what to do with some unused socks with a breath of new life!

1. Take your socks and make sure to trim the mat at least 10 cm.

2. Mine was 15 cm. which was perfect to put my pocket camera inside.

3. Now that you have the sock trimmed, give it to your mother. She knows how to stitch and close one end ;)

4. Here is one end of the sock stitched. Now your sock-pocket is done! The more socks you have, the more colors you can choose! I use them to carry in my bag a pocket camera, and one lens for my SLR without them getting scratched!

Hope this is useful! And remember, never throw away used socks!

    I've been using old socks to protect camera and radio equipment for years. Always a good idea.
