Dip-dying is an easy and inexpensive way to add custom color to your decor. Create a bunch of stockings in one color palette, or use a different color for each member of the family.
For this color-blocking craft, you will need the downloadable stocking pattern; one package of Rit Dye; 1/2 yard of cotton fabric exterior; 1/2 yard of cotton fabric lining; 1 yard of interfacing or cotton batting (optional for a sturdier stocking); and basic sewing essentials (pins, scissors, thread and a sewing machine).
Slip the lining stocking around the exterior stocking, so that they are right sides together. Match up the side seams and pin the top edges together. Sew around. Turn the stocking right-side out, and whipstitch the opening in the lining foot closed. Push the lining inside of the stocking, and press.
