Dollar Store Christmas Stocking with a new do!

Once I did the Target Halloween Towel's, my brain started spinning! The Thanksgiving Table Topper was born. And it didn't stop! And I'm so excited! And did I mention something about getting ready for the HOLIDAYS!? I think I did. So here we go...

A $1 Store Christmas Stocking with a new do! 1. Start with a 2-2 1/2" strip of fabric and something like this cookie cutter for a template 2. Trace a half circle onto the fabric using the cookie cutter, cut out. 3. Sew 1/4" seam around the curved part of the half circle. Trim seam and clip curves. Turn right side out and press. 4. Get your $1 Store Stocking,,, 5. Use a seam ripper and remove the white cuff. (easy peasy) 6. Using the cuff removed from the stocking as a pattern, cut 2 pieces of white fabric, the same size. Pin your scallops, overlapping each one a bit, to one piece along the long edge of the white fabric. {leave 1/4" space at each end} 7. Baste to the edge, just to keep the scallops in place. 8. Now sew the two pieces of white fabric, right sides together. Leave a small opening on opposite side of scallops, for turning.
9. Turn right side out, press. Then sew ends together, making a tube.
10. Place tube in stocking, right side of tube to wrong side of stocking. {place seam on outside edge of stocking} Sew tube to stocking along top edge with 1/4" seam. Flip tube to outside of stocking and carefully press.
Super Simple! 10 easy steps! $1 and some scraps!

I know i am a bit late at posting this but i was just going through some of my "saved" things and when i looked at this again, the picture of just the cuff and the edgeing reminded me of a cuff on a pillowcase.! How cute would that be!?!

angel said...

This is a great idea. When I first looked at the cookie cutter laying on the fabric it reminded me of a snowman. So I decided to use plain fabric and add snowmen, Santa, or buttons on the scolloped pieces. Really adorable. Thanks for the idea.

Mishka said...

What a great idea.
