Wire sock-stretcher

I came across this illustration of a design for a wire sock-stretcher; an alternative to the wooden ones I've seen at the museum.  I thought I'd follow the design and make one out of brass wire.

 A template for bending my brass wire in to shape.
 The nails will allow me to shape the wire around them in to the shape of the sock.
 The brass wire wrapped around.
 Two struts are soldered in place to hold the shape and provide support for the structure of the sock stretcher.
