Cut out the two base shapes. Pin the scrap fabric to the sock fabric so that the scrap will go on the inside and the sock will be facing out on the base. Turn the sock inside out and put back on the vessel. Fold the extra fabric underneath the base and pin it inside the circle template you made with the scrap fabric facing out.

When you sew this and turn it inside out you will have the sock base facing outwards, which is what you want. Sew the base to the rest of the sock using matching color thread. Snip any excess fabric once it is sewn to remove bulk from the base. Turn inside out and slide your sock over your vessel. You can fuss with the banding at the top to make it straight.{found on designsponge}
