Lay your socks out flat stacked on top of each other.

Cut out the toe and heel like below. You don’t need these so just toss them.

Take each foot portion from the socks and flip them in half so that the insides are touching each other (one side open and the other will be the folded edge). They will form tubes.

You’ll need to sew down the side of this tube to make it smaller. this is the part that goes on the ankles so it should be smaller than the top. You’re the best judge of what size is best for your baby.

When they are both sewn up, trim off the excess.

Position the foot portion onto the end of the leg portion so that the cut edges are all together. The leg portion of the sock should be going through the center of the tubes. Make sure that the tubes have the sewn edge on the outside. (they will end up on the inside when you turn them down after sewing.

Stick in your first pin to hold everything together and then stretch the whole thing out and pin directly across from the first pin then do the left and then the right sides.

when you sew, be sure that you are getting all the layers in. If you don’t, no biggie, just go in and pinch them together and run the machine over it again. dont worry about sewing evenly all the way around. really, it doesn’t matter.

See doesn’t matter. Nobody will ever know unless they get way too close to your kids ankles, and that’s just weird. I just zoom through and get it all done.

Here are my finished socks. The only thing I tried to be perfect about was getting the hearts lined up. patterned socks are a bit more difficult than not for this reason.
