First up, what is a sock hop? I mean I assume it's some sort of dance/social gathering, did they have to dance in their socks? If so, why?
Well if you're a pinterester you know that no laundry do over these days is complete without a lost sock organizer, so here she is,
Missing socks, it's like the greatest mystery since the invention of the washing machine. I personally think that the machine people and the sock companies are in cahoots. I bet the machines have a "sock limit" and once it has taken enough it dies! I bet the price of a new machine = the cost of all those lost socks! Well played, guys, well played!
I've also been wanting to try my hand at a magnetic board so I thought I'd combine the two.
Magnets - Get strong ones
First I cut my material and Mod Podged it on, I gave it 2 coats, make sure you get rid of threads, while the mod podge is wet, or they're stuck, FOREVER!
When that dried I hot glued the ric-rac, just to hide the join lines ,then I cut my letters and stuck them on, the vinyl is very light, sorry I couldn't get a clearer shot. I also craft at night, hence the shadows.
After that I glued the ribbon to the pegs and stuck a magnet on the other side,
What do you think, come on sock it to me, DIY Delight or Disaster?
Okay now I have to be honest, the reason I said use strong magnets - these ones wont hold anything but the babies socks. I will replace the magnets when I get some stronger ones. My verdict, Disaster! The more I look at it I'm liking it less and less, I think should have gone with something a little less "cutesy". I mean it's okay, but the one I liked was plainer and I think I should have stayed closer to her take on the sock holder.
Thanks for reading
