While I was on Pinterest one night last week, I found these adorable lace socklets and thought, “I can totally make those!” And so can you! Last year I found these amazing lace peds/socks/foot covers by a company called Kushyfoot, which have padding under the ball of the foot to make wearing heels more comfortable. They absolutely work, by the way, as well as add a little extra padding to a shoe or boot that’s a bit too big. I love them. But also, they worked swimmingly with this project…which is très easy. So I made two different pairs, in two very different styles.
What you’ll need…
* Kushyfoot covers in nude and/or Kushyfoot covers in black or white lace (or anything similar – also called foot liners and also a toeless version if you want to preserve your peeps)
* Lace fabric or trim (trim will stand up, fabric will lay flat)
* Matching thread and needle
* NOTE: these will look adorable with flats as well, I just don’t have any to demonstrate with.
* Carefully pin your ivory lace trim from edge to edge, gathering (or pinching) it in sections to make it pucker, then simply run a hem stitch along the inside. The gathering and hem stitch will allow for some stretch.
* Try on your lace socklets and with the pretty scalloped edge up, CAREFULLY pin your lace to the elastic area. You’ll want it to lie as flat as possible, so you may have to angle it. Try on your shoe to determine how much lace you’d like to show.
