Scarf Stocking

Make a bunch of cozy holiday stockings out of fringed scarves, then fill them with small wrapped gifts, stuffed toys, and candies.

  • Scarves

  • Scissors

  • Sewing kit


  1. Use our template; assemble sewing supplies. Fold a 9-inch-wide (or wider) scarf in half end to end, wrong sides facing. Align top of template with beginning of fringe, pin in place, and cut through all layers, leaving fringe intact.

  2. Remove template; pin pieces together around edges, then stitch around perimeter of stocking below cuff, leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance (do not sew cuff edges). Cut notches at cuff, heel, toe, and ankle as on template; this will make seams lie smooth. Turn right side out; stitch along sides of cuff. Press cuff seams open; fold cuff over.
