This is one of the most enjoyable little gift ideas! The options of socks and ribbons are almost endless. For a little girl special socks are always a hit. As you can see the ribbon I used for this set was a grosgrain style from my scrapbooking stash. I bought a set of six pairs of socks at WalMart. Total cost about $12 for six pairs. (A little guess, because the ribbons were part of stash of ribbons, buttons and eyelets that I bought). Only trick to sew these is be sure to stretch the top of the sock as you sew. This makes it ruffle so prettily. I used a little zig-zag stitch. When I had completed the sewing and arrived back to the starting point I made sure to connect the two ends with stitching. Lovely little idea if you make crafts or gifts for craft shows or bizarre sales.
