Stencilled Socks for Dad


Dads need socks and when they are on sale it is a good idea to grab them - but don't just think of Dads ... think of uncles, sons, brothers, grand dads and friends.

If there is more than one adult male in the house that you want to give a gift to, knowing whose socks are whose might be a problem. Not so if you stencil them.

So customise them with these downloadable shapes, as a way of identifying or naming them, as well as gifting them. Three good things all at once!


Time: 45 minutes
Age: Over 10's
Level: Easy

Materials

Ballpoint pen
Craft knife
Cardboard
Fabric paint
Brush or sponge
Newspaper


Method

Trace and cut shapes.


Print out the download, place on top of cardboard and trace around the shapes with a ballpoint pen. Take away the download and you will see the shapes indented into the cardboard.

Use a craft knife to cut out shapes.

Protect the back of the sock


Put some newspaper inside the sock
Lay stencil on top of sock
Apply fabric paint with a brush or sponge

Getting busy ...


When the fabric paint is dry, pop a cloth over the top of the design and give it a quick dry iron to further set the image.


Lucky Dad!
