Photos and instructions for this cute project have been emailed to us by Carol Van de Wetering. Carol, thank you so much for sending your project!
Here are a few words from Carol herself:
These are pictures of Silver Socks. I wanted covering for some of my silver items that I store in drawers, to protect them from scratches. If you'd like to use the same idea for your own items, just measure their length and width. I used soft knit fabric, so the actual sock was a little smaller in size for the stretch direction of the fabric, and a slight bit longer for the length which was on the firm "non stretch" of the fabric. The closure of the bag is either with elastic in casing or with a ribbon tied around the "neck" of the bag.
I used iron on stabilizer and a cut away hooped. I used violets designs
that were the same shape as the trays. This is a beautiful cross stitch set and I think maybe it would have looked lovely to put the family initial in the middle of the designs.
