As you can probably tell, I have baby on the brain. I am starting to think about what to pack for my hospital stay and many people suggest bringing slippers or non-slip socks. Since I don't want to potentially mess up my beloved LLBean slippers, looks like I am going with socks. Unfortunately, just thinking about hospital-issue socks makes my feet itch so I decided to get creative and make some on my own.
Here's what I used... white socks, puffy fabric paint, and some leftover cardboard to use as a template (roughly traced from my feet).
As you can tell, my feet aren't exactly delicate little lilies...
From here, it's pretty easy. Using the puffy fabric paint, draw out a pattern on the bottom of your socks...
...and let dry overnight. The next morning, I slipped them on, tried to faux-ice skate on my hardwood floors (didn't work), and sat down so Jesse could take a picture of them. The dogs were incredibly curious as to why I was sitting on the floor and wanted to get in on the action, too:
Have a great day, don't mind my furry floors, and stay homey!
(PS - I wash these like normal in the washing machine but hang to dry)
love! i will have to make some myself. the ick factor of hospital floors is enough for me to leave my llbean wicked good slippers at home! these i could just toss afterwards. your belly is so cute! :)ReplyDelete
The more we chat, the more I'm sure we're meant to be friends. Of course we have matching slippers :)Delete

This is a great idea! I take pure barre classes and they charge $10 for a pair of grippy socks..ReplyDelete
I love these! I just pinned them :) My 3 year old will get such a kick out of them, and my son is just learning to walk, so they will come in handy. I think we'll make a pair for all of their friends for Valentine's Day this year. Thank you so much for sharing this at my link party :)ReplyDelete

Those are way cuter than the socks I wore when I delivered my son. They're probably also way more comfy!ReplyDelete
I'll keep this in mind if I ever have another hospital stay, but until then I definitely see a gift for my nieces & nephews in my near future.
These are so cute and you took some great photos!ReplyDelete
