Christmas Stockings Made from Thrift Shop Sweaters

My  husband and I have been married for almost 3.5 years, and have yet to create a Christmas stocking tradition. Every year I think to myself, “oh I will find the perfect stocking and hang it up over our non existent fire place”. Yet this never happens because life gets busy (and weirdly enough a fire place doesn’t magically pop up either).AnExtraordinaryDay-Repurposed-Sweater-to-Christmas-Stocking-Tutorial

I tried to find a stocking that I could buy, but personally, I am not into the Santa Claus cut outs or traditional red sock with white trim. So, this year I decided that I would try to make a stocking. Unfortunately, I am not super crafty so I needed something simple. As I browsed on pinterest I found the perfect idea that I hope to embark on this weekend–Christmas Stockings made from Thrift Shop Sweaters. The things I love most about it is that a) you are recycling b) getting creative and c) you can choose your own design to match your personal taste.
