Sock Sleeve Extender

By:

Don't you hate when you have to get rid of your favorite jacket because the sleeves are too short?  Now you don't have to. Turn your old socks into Sock Sleeve Extenders with directions from Jane Skoch.

Materials:

  • An old coat that's too small in the arms
  • 1 pair of old socks
  • Scissors
  • Seam ripper
  • Pins
  • Ball point needle and thread
  • Sewing machine
     

Instructions:

  1. Cut off the end of the sock that isn't finished. The cut side will be sewn into the sleeve. The sock could simply have been tacked into the cuff, but I felt it should be machine sewed to ensure enough strength for pulling the coat on and off.


     
  2. Turn the sleeve inside out. Pull the lining away from the coat to expose threads and snip. Remove all the threads. If the sleeve is tacked to the seam, snip those threads also.




     
  3. Turn sleeve right side out and place sock tube over sleeve with raw edges even.


     
  4. Pin sock to sleeve, stretching sock as necessary.


     
  5. Sew (or serge) using a narrow zig zag stitch and a universal or ball point needle.


     
  6. Tuck the sock inside the sleeve. Fold the sleeve back to it's original position. Being sure to keep the lining out of the way, top stitch the sleeve.


     
  7. Turn sleeve inside out again. Pin lining to the sock. Hand stitch the lining to the sock, stretching as necessary.


     
  8. Enjoy another year with extra warm wrists! The new cuff can be worn folded or extended.
