Lame but AWESOME
So yesterday, Aren asked me to make some leg covers for the couch. He said I sould try to use elastic at the top or something so they would stay on better, but also that he didn't want them to be too noticeable. Initially I remembered that he had a few socks with holes in them and I thought perhaps I could use the sock as padding on the underside of the cover - and then I had the best idea EVER. Well maybe not ever.... but I was pretty stoked anyways. I could use the elastic at the top of the sock to keep the cover on! Not amazing, but whatever.

    So here we can see the cutout sock pieces. Black to use on the outside with a blue piece as padding, then the elastic top of the sock and finally a finished Couch Sock. :)
    The circles are cut as big as the leg you want to cover + about a half a centimetre (for serging/sewing).

    Serging with my NEW serger!! (Thanks Aren)
    Assemble as such: blue (padding) on bottom, black (outside of leg cover) next and finally on top the elastic band cut from the top of the sock.
    If you don't have a serger use ZigZag on your machine.
