Things You Can Make With 1 Lonely Sock

Feb 19 2014 - 3:16am

It's happened to all of us, probably more than once. We finish folding a load of laundry only to discover that a few socks have lost their mates. Blame it on the washing machine monster or the dryer demon, but somehow several socks go missing during our weekly laundry duties. Rather than toss that solo sock into the trash, why not turn it into something the kids will love? Check out all the fun things you can make with a lonely sock.
