I know I am not the first to do this.
I can't remember where I have seen this idea, probably Martha, so know that I do not claim this as my own creation ok?
what you do:
- Get a sweater, turn inside-out.
- Trace a stocking shape (did a rough estimate on paper) onto the sweater, so that the top of the stocking is at the bottom hem of the sweater (saves you from hemming it yourself!).
- Pin the stocking shape together so it won't move when cutting.
- Cut it out.
- Sew edges (zig-zag if possible)
- Turn inside out.
BAM! A stocking.
My pictures aren't awesome, sorry. And this particular stocking is kinda homely, but whateves, for .50 I am not going to sweat about it. Plus when they are hanging, you can even tell how imperfect they are.
ps- I'll do a "how-to" for my girls sweater dresses next time I get a sweater, I never took pictures or documented exactly how I made it. So no worries! It's coming!
