This budget-friendly stocking will have you dreaming of log cabin winter decorations in no time.
To cut out sweater pattern, place the pattern piece’s top edge along the bottom hem of your sweater. Cut through the front and the back of the sweater, around the pattern piece, giving you front and back exterior stocking pieces.
Place the front and back sweater stocking pieces together, and sew around the outer edges. Do not sew the top edge. Only sew around the sides. Then turn the stocking right-side out, and gently press the sides with your finger.
Place lining stocking pieces together, and sew around the side edges. Leave a 5” opening along the bottom of the foot for turning later.
Slip the lining around the outside of your exterior sweater stocking. Match up the side seams along the top edge. Pin together, and sew around the top edge. Turn it right-side out through the bottom opening in your lining stocking on the foot. Sew the opening closed, and push the lining inside of the stocking. Use your finger to turn out all inside edges.
Turn it right-side out through the bottom opening in your lining stocking on the foot. Sew the opening closed, and push the lining inside of the stocking. Use your finger to turn out all inside edges. Stitch around the top edge of your stocking to secure the lining in place.
Wrap the yarn skein around your piece of cardboard. Continue wrapping the yarn around the cardboard, lengthwise, until it is nice and thick all the way around. The thicker it is, the larger the pom will be.
Once you have wrapped it around enough times, cut the string of yarn from the skein at the end. Now take the yarn skein, and make a tie (not a knot) around the center of your cardboard yarn. Using your scissors, cut the ends of the yarn at the end of each side of the cardboard.
Gently pull the cardboard out from the center of the pom, while keeping all of the yarn in place. Once the cardboard is out, pull your tie tight and knot.
Repeat the pom process to make your second pom. Then tie those two poms together with a piece of 18” yarn in the center. Decide where you want the two poms to hang (evenly, one lower than the other, etc.), and create a knot in the top center of the middle yarn string. The center knot should have a 3” loop.
Take your poms, and where you tied the center knot loop, place the knot along the upper back seam of your stocking. Sew a straight line back and forth over the yarn knot to secure in place on your stocking.
