As many of you already know, we added two adorable new members to our family this year.
Which means we needed two adorable new stockings. So I made some out of thrift store sweaters!
Instructions on How to Make Christmas Stockings from Old Sweaters
I laid the sweater inside out on the table.
And put a stocking I already had on top.
I traced the shape and pinned it so that the front and back of the sweater wouldn’t shift while sewing.
Then I machine stitched on the lines before cutting so that the sweater wouldn’t unravel. Then I cut around the stitches.
And turned the stocking right side out.
And then, just like everything else a mommy of twins does, I did the same thing all over again!
I hung the stockings on an extra baluster I found in the basement. I just drilled some holes in it and hung it on some removable adhesive command hooks so that I can remove the whole thing after Christmas!
I can hardly wait to fill them with small gifts on Christmas Eve!
