Homemade Gifts- No-Slip Socks!

No-slip socks came out so adorable and Emma was very excited to make these for her cousins last night. I think this project may have been her all time favorite art project. So much love is going into our gifts this year and I love it! Emma put so much thought into the colors, fabrics and every detail for each person. It just makes me happy.
What you need:
Socks- prewashed
fabric paint (the kind in writing bottles)

Use a shoe to trace a foot shape onto the cardboard and cut out. You will need several of these to make a few pairs of socks. Put your cardboard into each sock and get to work painting being sure you are painting the bottom of the sock. The socks will need to dry overnight.

Emma enjoyed making these so much that I thought it would make a great gift to give a set of these paints along with solids tees, socks and a canvas bag. I think any kid would love to design their own clothing. How fun!
