Ages ago I showed you very quickly how I decorated my tray table. I love this thing to death because it means that I can work out in the lounge room without having a gigantic burning laptop scalding my legs! Because it’s adjustable I can make it flat and do crafts and nail art on it too 😀

The problem with it is that on tiles every time you move it scrapes and make horrible noise. This is what the bottom of the feet look like, the tiles have actually worn through the paint! So my solution is to make it some socks to keep it’s feet warm 😀

You need:

  • Felt
  • Needle and possibly pins
  • Similar coloured yarn
  • Scissors
  • Lace for decoration

First detach the legs so it’s easier to work with. Lay your felt underneath it so you can measure how long you need it. You are aiming to have a long tube which will fit around the legs all the way up to the first hole in the side. My felt wasn’t long enough to do that so I had to use two pieces to make it long enough.

The cut out pieces, one for each leg.

To join the two pieces together I used a shoelace style stitch. This is to make sure it lays as flat as possible, you don’t want a wobbly table!

All sewn together into one piece:

After you’ve sewn them together, just make sure it’s still the correct length…

Now sew the other one 😀

Now thread your needle with the yarn. Wrap the felt around the end of the leg and stitch (or pin) it in place to hold it.

Using a blanket stitch start sewing the felt into a tube around the leg.

It should look something like this:

Keep going all the way up!

When you reach the top where the hole is poke the needle through it then wrap the thread around a few times. This will secure the sock at the top of the leg so it doesn’t wiggle down while you’re using it.

Now at end you started at use the yarn to close up the hole.

So this is what it looks like with the socks fully on..

Now it’s time to decorate 😀 I sewed a ring of lace around the top of the sock.

On another note, with all the questions I’ve been getting lately about nail art I’m going to do a FAQ like the Hime Style one I did a few weeks ago. If you have any questions you would like included just comment or contact me.
