Two Recycled Stockings

My Huffle bought a jumper for an 'Ugly Sweater' competition at work. He found an old Marks & Spencer jumper, which on him did look ugly, but really it just didn't suit him. So I was given permission to make it into a stocking for him for this Christmas.

.......and this is how it turned out.

Huffle looking proud (he even asked me to sew the M&S label back in!

Then my Mum, Moo, decided to turn her PJ's, that she got in the sale and didn't like, into a stocking for herself.

.....and this is how they turned out.

And even some beautiful stitching of her name.

So the family's Christmas stockings are all ready for Santa's visit.



P.S. I saw these in the supermarket. I never knew Butterfingers was already 'something'. The cashier looked at me in surprise and asked why was I taking a photo of a chocolate bar!!!!!!!

I was tempted to use this photo as my profile picture but I realised they have Peanuts in and I don't like nuts!

Fabulous stockings and what a great idea to make them out of items that are not well loved. I often hesitate to take a photo of something that strikes me as interesting for fear attracting odd looks, LOL. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Elizabeth xx
