To make your own sweater stockings you'll need:
- Sweaters. thin wool sweaters work best. If you haven't had a recent moth invasion, any Goodwill should have plenty of sweaters to choose from. One large men's sweater will yield two stockings. I used materials salvaged from other sweaters for embellishing.
- Craft needle. A large needle with an eye large enough to thread yarn.
- 1 1/2 - 2 yards of fabric to line the stockings. I used my husbands old shirts and was able to line three stockings with one large flannel shirt.
- Sewing machine.
Step 2: Cut the sleeves off and cut them open along the seems, cut along neck line and one side of body so that you have flat pieces of sweaters.
Step 3: Use an old stocking to trace or free hand your stocking pattern onto the flat pieces of sweater.
Step 4: Get creative and sketch out designs for your stockings. I went with a woodland theme that will match the rest of my Christmas decorations. My advice is to keep it simple.
