Here’s a great way to reuse old fleece scarves that you don’t need anymore. Turn them into pretty Christmas stockings!
I just made myself a simple basic stocking pattern out of some paper. Fold the scarf in half horizontally.
You want to place your pattern so that the bottom edge of the stocking lines up with the fold.
At the top of the stocking there should be space extending up past your pattern to the ends of the scarf where the fringe is. This will become a fringed cuff for your stocking. From there you simply cut out the stocking and either sew it together or put it together using a fabric glue like Aleene’s Fabric Fusion. (If there is a wrong side, you should sew it with right sides together so you can then turn it right side out OR you can put it wrong sides together and hand sew around using something like a blanket stitch). Turn the fringed ends down to form a cuff.
With some of the leftover strips of fleece from the scarf, I wound them randomly around a styrofoam ball to create an ornament.
NOTE: If you don’t have any old fleece scarves to recycle, you can go to a second hand clothing store and often find them there. I’ve also been seeing commercials for Old Navy saying that they are having a sale on fleece scarves this Saturday, December 18th – all fleece scarves will be $1. There looked to be some really pretty ones there!
