    Talking D.I.Y. Down Socks

    Hey guys, I just can't stop!

    I had an extra oz of down left over and I decided to take a shot at some down socks. Turns out it was pretty easy.

    Each sock has 1/2 oz of down in it and I used 1.1 ripstop. Total weight for the pair is 2oz exactly.

    Total cost of project.... $6.50

    Thanks for checking it out!

    That's too funny. And practical for those cold nights. Maybe put some removeable bells on them for the Christmas time hangs.
    Just keep on keeping on.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I have so much 1.1 here from quilts it's insane.

    How do you like the full oz per sock?

    Thank you. Bells are to hard to sew, but maybe some flashy lights.
