Ok so as much as the other tutorial looked good, I just have a hard time making it work. Then another one popped up on Pinterest. So I tried with a pair of socks from the dollar store. This works better, but if you have an argyle or a pattern, watch how you cut and sew them. I noticed after that mine were mismatched. Oh well, Miss V could care less.
I will try again with other socks that I picked up.
