I love to run across a project that I can take something that would otherwise be useless and make it useful again. I just happen to have a few sweaters that I no longer like to wear and her is an opportunity to up-cycle them. Thanks for the inspiration.

Now that I have seen this quick and easy project to make my own stockings, I will never find the sweater that I need to make it happen. However, I suspose there is nothing dictacting that my stockings have to be red. The hunt is on.

This is exactly what I need to know! I have to come up with two stockings this year. I usually knit them but can't knit as much as I used to and was actually dreading it. This is much faster and they look just as good as hand knitted ones. I am kind of limited in sewing skills but I think I can pull this one off.
