Description

I have mostly black socks, but sometimes I like to wear Navy Blue.  While I do have lights in my walk in closet, in the morning when I am not too awake, I often can't tell the navy from the black.

Today, I had a :zap: idea.  My sewing machine has a built in alphabet.  Why not just "write" across the top of each navy blue sock the name of the color! 

I stitched it in white, so as to provide good contrast to the dark blue.  Because of the stretchy nature of the socks, I grabbed a piece of random leftover stabilizer and put it behind the stitching. 

Now, there will be no more question about which socks are dark blue and which are black! 

Why didn't I think of this before?

Very clever!!!

Speattle

Thanks! I know it is kind of silly, but practical enough, that I thought it would okay to post it.

No- its a clever idea- the stitching won't come out that way simply making an x would- and seems to me whatever you are working on is for posting here on Threadbias- it's what we're all "up to right now"-and its always interesting to see what everybody else is doing whether its something fun and whimsical or more practical - its all good!

Mymble Hmmm, I also mended a tear in the underarm of my husband's tee-shirt today. I don't think I'm gonna waste the digital pixels taking a picture of that though.

LOL- well there are limits;)))))

Very cute! I dress in the dark. Last week, I got to work with brown pants and black socks on and the brown pants were on the short side so it was way obvious! I was sure the pants were black when I dressed. I need this idea!

I once wore one dark blue heel and one black one to a formal event! The shoes were similar in style and height and I just didn't look carefully when getting dressed.
