Notebook Doodles // a pair of colourwork socks
It’s nostalgia time! These socks are inspired by the doodles we used to draw in the margins of our middle-school notebooks. Who could forget those fun gel pen colours we weren’t allowed to use for our schoolwork? Bright colours, easy construction, and the perfect amount of colourwork, and your heart will be right back in those doodling days.
