How, how has it taken me this long to figure out that I can sew name tapes onto socks with a sewing machine?
5 pairs of school socks, 2 pairs of white socks, 1 pair of rugby socks (2 socks per pair) multiply by 2 boys= 64 name tapes. That's a lot of saved effort.
Just don't factor in the 7 school years before I thought of it and sewed them all in by hand. It's never too late to figure out something new.
