Country Sampler Special Edition

Upcycle Old Clothing


Repurpose a plaid wool blazer and cableknit sweater into a cute Christmas stocking. Cut two stocking-shaped pieces from the plaid fabric, leaving excess material at the top for the cuff. With right sides together, sew around the shape, leaving the top open. Turn right sides out. Cut sweater material to wrap around the stocking as a cuff. Fold over one long side and stitch a hem. Sew the two short ends together to form a band. Place the cuff inside the stocking with the right side of the cuff facing the wrong side of the stocking. Sew the pieces together near the top edge and then fold the cuff over the stocking. Sew on a hanger cut from the sweater material. Sew three buttons along the side of the cuff. Embellish with a wood letter, ribbon, bells and greenery.
