Turn Baby Socks into Keepsakes

By Noreen Doll.

For a fun Christmas tree ornament, as well as a cherished keepsake, hang your little one’s first pair of socks on the tree.

They make darling little Christmas stockings.

Comparing that tiny sock with the current size of your offspring’s foot can be fun for the whole family – especially the owner of that foot!

It would be extra special if you take a photo of the baby wearing the socks.

Or maybe for fun, take a photo of the baby sock on the big toe of the now grown owner.

  1. Oh, I love this, Noreen! You can also sew or glue on a picture of the child wearing them. I made a memory hat out of my granddaughter’s winter hat. I printed out pictures on fabric of her wearing the hat in the snow and then sewed them on the hat. It’s on my blog from years ago. I didn’t think of socks but I’ll keep that in mind for Christmas ornaments! Keep cool. Linda
