Day 2 – 12 Days of Christmas 2018

WELCOME to Day 2 – 12 Days of Christmas 2018

Today’s craft was inspired by one of those moments when you have an idea for a gift for someone but you cannot source it locally. I did find something similar on-line but decided since I had the tools, I’d like to try to make them myself.

You will need a die cutting machine for this (I have a Cricut Explore Air) and an iron or in my case a Cricut Easy Press. Don’t be disheartened there will be information at the end of the post on where you can buy them already made (from yours truly).

The socks I decided on came in a pack of three. I really like the red band at the top. I measured the area where I wanted to put the words on the soles of the socks and my work area turned out to be 3″ x 5″.  I sat at my computer and in Cricut Design Space I used two rectangles as my guide and arranged the text to my liking – the font on the above socks is Cricut Sans.  I like it but wanted something a bit chunkier so on the next two pair I made I used the font -Boink Com. I really like the fact the meaning is the same regardless of what order you put your socks on.

If you don’t want to read the rest of the instructions and just want to know how to buy a pair of these fabulous custom made socks skip to the end… for anyone who wants the full instruction keep reading. Continue reading Day 2 – 12 Days of Christmas 2018
