recycled wool felt Christmas stockings

Yep, I'm getting a bit obsessed with wool felt. I made these last night. Dave and I have old stockings from our youth, but I think we need nice new ones. These will be perfect. The boys have quilted stockings I made years ago. I found this sweater at Goodwill yesterday. I thought it too beautiful to pass up, and decided on the way home it would be perfect for Christmas stockings. I even lined them with cotton so trinkets from Santa won't get caught in the yarns on the inside of the stocking. They are about 14 or 15 inches long. There is an old button sewn on by the hanger, but you can't see it in the photo.

FYI 3.29 for the sweater, and I have about a third of it left. 2.00 for the two "fat quarters" I used to line the stockings.

The felted wool projects are amazing!!! I use recycled wool sweaters (all from
Goodwill, too!) in the diaper soakers I've made for Joe, and just might have some scraps to send your way:) Fantastic!

very nice stockings. i'd like to do something with wool felt soon, too. i saw in a mag how to make coffee cup sleeves. i thought those would sell well at a local coffee shop, b/c people could just keep them in their purse or coat pocket and not use paper ones then throw them away.
