Blanket Stockings

Steps:8
Add a personal touch to the age-old holiday tradition of hanging stockings by making your own this year. Transform worn wool blankets into oversize stockings using our template. If your blanket is striped or plaid, be sure that the pattern on both sides of the stocking match up. And if your blanket has a fringe, line it up with the top of the stocking pattern so it will become the edge of the cuff.
Materials
  • Stocking template
  • Fabric, such as a wool blanket
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Steam iron
