With projects flying off of my needles lately & with the holidays coming up, I’ve been thinking about the many ways of packaging these hand-knitted gifts. Anyone who has hand-knitted or crocheted anything for someone else, knows exactly how much work and love went into that little project. After all of the work is done and the piece is ready to be sent on its way, it becomes time to package it all up for someone special to open and love. Unlike store-bought socks and other garments, our hand-made masterpieces don’t come with any fancy hooks, hangers, or tags that help to display and show them off. Sure, you can simply tie the item up in a cute little package as-is – but don’t just settle for that when you can take it a step further! To help with all of those knitted sock gifts, I decided to create a cute free SVG cutting file that works as both a sock blocker (to help them keep shape) and adorable display at the same time!
There are two versions of these fun sock blockers included: one with the “Knitted With Love” text and one that is completely blank for you to customize yourself (or use with crocheted socks)! Simply ungroup the layers, pick which template you prefer while removing the other, and duplicate the chosen temple before cutting your pair out. I used a thicker cardstock paper for my blockers to really make sure they hold the shape but feel free to use your preferred type of paper. The templates are already pre-sized for small/medium women’s socks so be sure to re-size them if needed to fit your project. I was able to fit my complete sock blocker SVG pair onto a 12×12 inch cutting mat which makes this not only super easy but quick to cut and craft as well!
Here are my SVG knitted sock blockers displaying a cute pair of hand-knitted socks:
I hope you enjoyed this free SVG cutting file for a sock blocker & display! Keep an eye out for my next hand-knit/hand-crocheted SVG blocker freebie – it’s coming very soon! 🙂
