I don't know how the laundry goes at your house, but at mine it seems the odd socks multiply like rabbits in the basket on top of my dryer and I don't really do anything about it until the basket is overflowing, and the whole household is out of socks by this time.
In the interest of organization and control I came up with the idea to put each persons odd socks in a separate bag, and then it would be easy as new odd socks are found to try to match them up each time. I realize the bag doesn't solve the whole problem, I need to follow through, but at least I am looking through one persons socks for the match, rather than four peoples socks. Does this make any sense to you?
I sewed four colored coded mesh/cotton bags.
While they are nothing too creative, I am happy with the finishing construction...
...which includes flat felled and french seams leaving no unfinished edge exposed.
