Sock Cupcakes! This time with a tutorial!!


I have made these for little easter and mothers day gifts, i did the same last year with flanels and face cloths so needed a new spin this year!

And i have actually done a tutorial for these, it works for the flanels too you just have to experiment with the folding - I normally fold my flanels into 4 diagonally

Fancy a go... Keep reading!


These use one pair of ladies socks, keep the 2 socks together and lay flat...this photo is a little wrong, the heel should be at the top!


Fold the sock almost in half, leave the top of the sock a little short of the toe - this will give you a neater finish


Then fold around a 3rd of the sock over (this will depend on the depth and size of your muffin case so you may need to experiment)

Then from the heel end start rolling, you may need to keep the fold in place as you roll


When fully rolled the top should look a bit like this, it wont look perfect...well mine never do!



Then pop it into its muffin case - i have used mini muffin cases for mine as the standard ones were way too big, i could have used 2 socks i guess.


I have finished mine off with large diamantes from poundland, last year i used bath pearls but i suppose there are several things you could use depending on how expensive you wanted to make the gift



Hope you like them, and if you fancy having a go yourself feel free to link back to this tutorial

Hi Lisa - these are great and loved your flannel ones too. Hope you don't mind me asking - but how much would you charge at a craft fayre for something like this - I have totally no idea.

Thanks in anticipation of letting me know

Wow! What an adorable idea. I usually turn to paper crafts such as scrapbooking when I'm creating a gift for someone, but I might have to break from tradition and try this next time I'm in need of a splendid gift. I'm not sure if I've seen muffin tins like that though. Maybe they are unique to the UK? I'll have to keep my eyes open.

Thanks for the post!
