I have been wanting to make new stockings for awhile now. The ones we have are from when I was growing up. They are denim and flannel and are HUGE! I am trying to convert over to a timeless Christmas theme in our home consisting of silver, whites and gold. I saw this picture on Pinterest and that is exactly what I wanted for stockings. Simple, clean, and fun texture.
So one morning Mom and I hit up Savers and I got a few sweaters.
I made up a pattern.
Turned the sweater wrong side out and positioned it as desired. I wanted them to be different lengths, adding a touch of variation so I positioned the pattern down a bit on a few socks.
Cut around the sock.
We then surged around the edges.
So Beautiful!!! Then we turned them right side out and added loops to hang them up on. (Which I should have taken a picture of because Mom made some beautiful loops.)
Repeat for additional socks.
Hang them up and admire!
I am so in love with this room! So festive, so cozy! The stocking really pull it all together!!
Okay Santa, we are almost ready for you!
