Create a Stocking Especially for Your Furry Friend!

I have many crafting talents; knitting is not one of them.  I can knit a pot holder or a scarf but the list pretty much ends there.  However, I love the look of knitted stockings.  I already have store bought knitted stockings that I embellished for the humans in my life, but my dog needed his own stocking to hang by the chimney with care.  I couldn’t find a knitted dog themed stocking in stores, so I set out to make my own.  By cutting up an old sweater, I was able to have a stocking that looks knitted but only required my sewing skills!  So, get ready to make your furry best friend the best “knitted” stocking ever.

Materials:

  1. Print out and assemble this Dog Bone Stocking Pattern

  1. Pin your pattern to your fabric and cut around it. Cut out Dog Bone Pattern 1 from both the sweater and the cotton.  Cut out Dog Bone Pattern 2 from both the sweater and the cotton.

  1. With the right sides facing each other, pin your two Dog Bone Pattern 1 pieces together and your two Dog Bone Pattern 2 pieces together.

  1. Run a ½” seam around the edge of both Dog Bone Pattern 1 and 2 pieces. Leave yourself a small opening in each.  You may want to use a zig zag stitch depending on how well the sweater is holding up. Pull your fabric through the opening so the right sides are out and pin the opening closed.

  1. Place the Dog Bone Pattern 1 piece down with the cotton side up. Place the Dog Bone Pattern 2 piece on top of it with the sweater side up.  Line up the bottoms and pin together.

  1. Run a ¼” seam around the entire edge of the dog bone. This will sew the Dog Bone Pattern 1 and 2 pieces together creating the pocket for the stocking.  I continued the seam the whole way around to make it look continuous.

  1. Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to hold your stocking. Mine is about 4”.  Pin the ribbon to the upper left of the dog bone.  Sew it in place.

  1. Hang your stocking and wait for Santa to fill it with goodies!
