My favorite place for craft materials? The thrift store of course! I hit the pajama section and was immediately drawn to these bright striped fleece pants. You can go for a thinner material, but you’d need to add some interfacing to make it strong enough to hold all your goodies. A wide leg pant helps, too.
DIY Christmas Stocking from Fleece Pants
You’ll also need:
- Kraft paper with self-made stocking pattern
- Sewing machine
- Fabric scissors
I initially planned to create a yarn and make some pompoms with the other pant leg, but as I began to cut, I fell for the fringe. So, to make yours, fold your other pant leg in half, cutting thin strips from the folded edge up to just below the top edge.
