What can you make with a old sock?

I recently realised my old camera case (made from scrap fabric) was falling apart so I made this one to replace it. Basically it's the top end of an old sock (I cut off the worn foot) with a button from my stash and a ready made buttonhole.

wrist warmers made from old socks can be useful in cold weather

Cunning and innovative! I wouldn't want any of my socks used for anything though lol. Not my running ones anyway!

Nice, the recycle, a new function.

Great! Ingenuity is alive and well! I made a pair of crutch holders to mount on the back of a wheelchair yesterday out of elastic, wire and two left over lengths of plastic drainpipe. Very "Valerie Singleton". Only the sticky-back plastic was missing. They look fine and work well.

Gwil - yes I've made wrist warmers from old socks too,

Simon - no some socks are beyond reuse you're right!
