No Sew Lace Knee Socks | DIY Lace Craft

Last week I traveled to my good friend Mindy's house (Cute Girls Hairstyles) to work on a few projects at her house.  It was a cram packed 5 days full of fun, work, and seriously good times.  We did however, manage to find time to film a few videos.  

This project is seriously easy! I saw a pair of socks that had gathered lace at the top and fell in love.  But I said to myself, -I could make a lace topper that has elastic that can be used on any pair of knee highs.  This lace has already been gathered and elastic added to make this a no sew project.  

Items needed for this project:
  • Knee High socks-  I found lots of colors at Target.
  • Gathered/elastic/lace-  I found mine at Hobby Lobby in cream and black.  I am sure you could find something at your local fabric store if you don't have Hobby Lobby.  
  • 1/4" ribbon-  I bought mine at Hobby Lobby on a spool.  I used grosgrain ribbon as it stays tied better than a silk.  You can find this same ribbon at Joann, Walmart, and Michaels.
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors

My favorite Identical Twins modeling the socks for me.  I love them like my own neices.  They are the oldest daughters of Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles.

You can see these with Valentine socks on Cute Girls Hairstyles.  They are shown on the "Lace Braid Heart" video.  It will debut on February 1st.  I plan to do this hairdo on my baby girl this Valentine's Day!  Mindy has several Valentine hair ideas on her website to choose from.

I would love to see your projects.  You can go to Showmecute on Facebook and post your photos!  

Happy Valentine's Day!
