Default How to hold it together!

I hope I am not to far off topic with this question. I crochet frilly edges to little girl socks, along with beads and buttons and am wondering how to keep the sock pairs together for selling. I dont want to staple and make holes, etc, but I am figuring with all your great minds out there, maybe someone can think of a suggestion that would work great!

would a paperclip work by just clipping the inside of each sock = 2 layers?

they've got some really nice painted?/colored ones out now.

your socks sound adorable!

Small safety pins wouldn't leave a very big hole and if you pinned the sock part, you wouldn't even see the holes once they are washed.

I would use a lined alligator clip, maybe with a small bow on it. They are inexpensive and easy to make. It is like a little bonus.

I knew you all would come thru for me!!! Thanks, thanks, and DOUBLE THANKS!!! Super ideas, I like them all and will use them all!! Will pick up paperclips, for the newborn socks, and safety pins for the next size up and use alligator clips/bows for the larger girl socks. If any of you crochet, these socks are totally addictive!!! If I wasnt 53, I would love to wear them!!! Grandma with buttons and beads on her socks might cause some concern with my husband and grown sons!!!

Guess I'm too late! But a quick loop of thread (done with a needle) would be easy for the new owner to remove.

I was thinking about those little metal clamps that hold socks together when you buy a pair at the store. I couldn't find a photo for those but here is a pic for the plastic type.

I do like the idea of the hair clip....very cute!

I would just get a tagging gun. (Probably because I have one and like it lots!) You can get small needles for clothing and they are very simple. I think I purchased mine for 5-7 dollars on eBay. Makes it look professional, but maybe the handmade look is better for your image? If so, I think Birdsong's idea is fantastic!
