How to make vintage Christmas sweater stockings

 Easy to make sweater stockings:

 Buy a vintage sweater or 2 at a thrift, found mine at Goodwill for $1.
 Lay out a pattern on the best part of your sweater. 
Cut one front, one back, using a pattern like one shown above.
 If you do use pattern above make it longer. 
Pin together make sure front or outside of fabrics are facing each other.
   Slowly sew around, the bumpy sweater fabric can catch in your machine.  
Now have fun!
