More Happy Feet Pics - Folkwear #129A
Here are some more pictures of my Tabi "socks". The front-on picture shows how structured the socks are in the Seafoam rib knit. Click here to see the Folkwear #129A sewing pattern.
This is the third pair I have sewn and I've done a much better job on easing in the upper sock around the toes for a smooth look.
I followed the pattern instructions with two minor changes. The first was that I used Velcro instead of hooks for the closure. And the second is that instead of zigzagging the inside sole, I used a double row of straight stitch. This is laziness on my part. I sew most garments on my straight stitch machine and I didn't want to thread up another machine.
