So anyway, here's the low down on making a inexpensive, quick stocking.
I went to Goodwill and found 6 sweaters new with tags (they were Target XSs..our Goodwill buys all of Targets stuff they can't sell). Three were turtleneck and 2 vneck and another random red sweater. All a few bucks a piece. Then I laid them down on my cutting board.
Placed a stocking down as a template. I put the opening of the stocking over the tneck as I wanted to include that in the stocking. Then I cut around it.
This is what I had. I turned it right sides facing. Stitched it around the edges with my machine. Then turned right side out again. Used a pinch of red rickrack for the hook. Voila! :)
Other things....here's what we did for the kid's piano teachers. The apple and a stamped note paper cube.
Also, isn't this the cutest?? Micah, my 3 year old gave this to me for Christmas. His preschool class did it. The snowmen are his cute little feet. I'm sharing it, because it would make a super cute Grandma gift.
That's it for today...I'm off to cut lots of fabric...more gifts to make! :)
I found your blog a few days ago and just love love love it.
I adore the idea of the sweater stocking and want to try it myself. Maybe after Christmas? yes, after I think. I will try our Goodwill here.
Love the apron and the teacher gifts
I just found your blog through The Crafty Crow. You have so many great ideas!! I look forward to visiting often!
Thanks so much for visiting and the comments. :)
Deezie, I plan on doing some Christmas crafts still after too so I can pack it away with the rest for next year. It will save some of the hussle and bussle of the season next year. :)
