Upcycled Christmas Stockings

This is the first year Ethan will be getting a Christmas stocking and this is Lily's first Christmas. I couldn't let them use store bought stockings!


I have been scouring the web to find ideas and tutorials to make upcycled Christmas stocking from sweaters. I found several good ones and finally talked myself into cutting into the thrifted sweaters I bought a few weeks ago.

It didn't turn out perfect and I may end up making another one next year but it will work for this year! I used sweater material for the front, back and cuff. I lined it with green polyester and used the same for the hanging tab. I machine zigzagged the 'E' on.


I knew Lily's had to be pink after seeing the pink stocking from MADE's pattern.


My sweater wasn't 100% wool so it didn't felt up much but I love it just the same. I won't win any awards for hand embroidery but I did get the 'L' on. Do you recognize the 'L'? 


HeeHee!!



I can't wait to see the kids on Christmas morning and discover all the goodies inside! Maybe I'll get Eli and I one made before next year.
