Sarah wanted a new cover for her Nintendo DS so I made one using a stripey sock. This would be a fun project for kids to do as there are only a few steps involved and it gives quick results!
Here is a quick How To:
1. Select a sock that is the right size for your appliance so it fits the device snugly. The band on the sock helps to hold the device in place when it is in the sock sack. An adult sized sock was a good size for a Nintendo DS. A child or toddler sized sock would be a better fit for a mobile phone or iPod.
2. Cut the sock to fit. Make sure you leave enough for the seam allowance.
3. Position some buttons on the sock. When you are happy with their arrangement, stitch them on. (It is easier sewing the buttons on at this stage).
4. Turn the sock inside out. Pin the raw edges together. Sew along the bottom opening, and then turn right side out. Voila!
(Don't discard the rest of the sock, I have another project for that coming soon).
We caught up with some friends this morning for morning tea and Sarah made up a plate of cupcakes to take along. They were vanilla cupcakes, covered in chocolate ganache, and decorated with multi coloured smarties and M & M's. They were delicious!
