Sweater Stocking with Ruffles

I don't know what you did last night, but I was crying my eyes out at Parenthood.  In my opinion, one of the best shows on television right now.  I always get too involved with the show and so sad when it's over.

I only have a 2 shows I have to watch every week.  Parenthood is one and the other shall remain nameless.

Ok, it's Revenge.

Here's a stocking I made today!

Okay, if I'm being completely honest, there are more like 5 shows I have to watch every week.

This was so very easy to make.

Step one: Lay a cut out template of the size you want your stocking onto an old sweater.  And cut around template.

Once you've cut out your sweater you should have 2 pieces exactly the same size.
Next: face the right sides together and pin around the perimeter of the stocking.
  Make sure the right sides are facing each other and sew around the stocking.  Leaving the top open.

Turn it right side out
 Using a glue gun I took two strips of red and white fabric and gathered ruffles around the the bottom of the top portion of the stocking.  I did the red first onto the sweater and the white on top of the red.

Once your finished gluing, flip the top down.  Glue on a little piece of ribbon to make a loop for hanging, and your done!

  1. I really love these, but I'm afraid of cutting and have the whole thing unravel. Did you have any issues with that?

    I can not miss Once Upon a Time and Homeland - Homeland was the surprise one because it's not usually my type of thing. They stopped playing Parenthood here Grrr

  2. I love that stocking and the colors you used! I am hooked on Parenthood. It's a well written show and so realistic. Last night was an emotional one....it hit so close to home, too. I felt as if it was my Mom's story. I also watch Private Practice...same night..so I record that one. Parenthood takes priority!

  3. That is so cute! I'm working on some new stockings right now... my boys keep making me promise I'll have them up by Christmas! Oh, boy!

  4. this is such a great upcycle! love the addition of the ruffles!

  5. haha..i love going back after you started the stocking explanation to say " okay, it's really five shows".

    I'm almost caught up on Grey's. we'll talk.
