I decided to enter a contest at www.prudentbaby.com. In this contest, you make a stocking that has knit fabric somehow incorporated, and the winner gets a serger. I figured I might as well try even though I figure I won’t win. Grant and I need stockings, but I wanted at least three; an uneven number cause I like how that looks on a fire place. I used the stocking tutorial from Fabric Worm,and I show below how I made the stocking.
My main material was an Ikea Fleece Throw Blanket since it is cheaper to buy the 3 dollar blanket than the same amount of material at Joanns.
I cut my knit fabric which I needed in this stocking into strips and started reasearching. I tried weaving with cut seams,but the raw edges looked crappy. I was inspired from this purse, and so I ended up having to sewing all of my strips into channels.
Fold the strip to make the cuff and sew one end to make a wide tube.
