A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Christmas Stockings From Old Clothing...

As I've mentioned before - I love fabrics.  I have a 
basket of fabrics and old clothing that I keep just 
because the material could live a second life.  
Yesterday I felt inspired to make something out of 
some of those pieces.  I was drawn to an
old denim jumper - so that was my starting point.  
I added some sweater remnants and wa-la...
 
 
 I've kept a Christmas stocking pattern shape on 
hand from years ago...so cutting them out was easy.
 A section of the sweater sleeves proved to be a 
perfect fit for the stocking cuffs...
 ...stitched some pockets in place and added a 
vintage matching button.  What do you think?
For more inspiration - check out these sites that I'm linking to:

I think they are adorable! Denim is my favourite fabric and I have started some stockings using old jeans, but just haven't finished them.
