After spending a couple hours out shopping with my one year old nephew, I realized that babies go through a TON of socks! He would go into the store with two socks and inevitably by the time we left there would be one lonely sock on his foot.
I realized that the perfect gift for his first birthday would be some baby socks. I mean the more he has the better, right?! Especially since he seems to be constantly losing them.
I didn't want to just throw a bunch of socks in the bag and call it good either because that just didn't seem fun. So I came up with the "Cozy Caterpillar" baby socks gift. It's super cute and easy to make!
|Step 1: Take one of the baby socks and roll it up as seen in the picture.|
|Step 2: Take the first baby sock and put it down inside the foot of the matching sock.|
|Step 3: Starting at the opening of the sock, roll it around the foot so that you end up making a ball.|
|Step 4: Do this with all the remaining socks. Then decide which pattern you would like your caterpillar to have. There was only one red sock with mine, so I made that the head.|
Step 7: Finish by filling in around your caterpillar with your paper shreds. I made mine by running 2 different colors of green paper through my shredder.
There you have it! A cute and fun way to give baby socks!
I will be linking up to my favorite parties this week.
