How is your Christmas decorating coming? Have you made anything Christmassy yet? This is a perfect project to get you in the holiday spirit. If you don’t need an extra stocking for your mantel these are perfect to use in place of a gift bag. A little bonus a gift within a gift.
We found this project on a blog called The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking. Make sure to stop by.
First lay your sweater inside out on a flat surface.
You can use a stocking that you already have as a pattern or just free hand the size & shape that you like.
Trace the shape and pin it so that the front and back of the sweater won’t shift while your sewing.
Then machine stitch on the lines before cutting so that the sweater won’t unravel. Then cut around the stitches.
Finally turn the stocking right side out and you have the perfect hand crafted stocking.
Happy Holidays to you and yours.
