diy rustic upcycled christmas stockings

November 25, 2013

Last year I made these upcycled stockings for myself, Robert and the cats (of course!) using wool sweaters from a thrift store. This year I wanted to do a variation using old flannel shirts and cut out felt snowflakes. 


[Using the dollar store stocking as a pattern, cut two pieces out of the cotton fabric. I made the white piece the front of the stocking]
[Using the white piece as a pattern, cut out a piece of plaid for the bottom. Fold the top over and iron flat, then stitch down at the top]
[Take the snowflake pattern and tape it down to the felt. This prevents it from sliding around as you cut. Cut out the snowflake- cut right through the tape. Peel tape off the top when finished. Glue the cut out felt snowflake to a piece of old sweater, then sew it to the stocking]
[Using a contrasting plaid, cut a section for the top. Fold the bottom edge down, press and then sew in place]
[Place the right sides of the stocking together. Sew around the edges and bottom. Turn right side out and press the seams]
[Using an iron, press the edges down around the top of the stocking to hide the raw edges. Sew down in place]
[Cut a  2 1/2 X 6 inch rectangle out of the plaid. Using an iron, press the side edges towards the middle. Fold in half lengthwise and stitch down to create a long strip. Fold over and sew in between the  sides of the stocking]
[The stocking on the left was created in a similar manner, except I attached the felt snowflake with a string around the tab]
