Frugal Fabric Friday: Christmas Special #3

Ok so I'm posting this on Saturday, but that's because I got all excited on Friday posting my new red knit top and knit dress. Hope you don't mind too much!

This week I want to share the Christmas stokcings I made during the week and posted earlier.

1. Fleece.
Super easy to do this is unlined and based on the patterns available for download from FleeceFun.com. I made mine several squares wider, slightly taller, and slightly deeper in the foot to fit 12 jokey presents.
Rather than just the usual single cuff I added a double cuff of cream scallops and green zipzags. Hopefully more elf than Kermit!
This is cute so I might well make another one for myself.

2. Faux suede and faux fur.
Very faux but Oh so elegant, this is also from a pattern on FleeceFun.com.

I have more things planned so stayed tuned. And of course we start the scrap busting in earnest in January!!!!! I am really excited about that and have so many cool ideas (and so many scraps that need using up).

Glad you are enjoying the stockings, I am too!
Must admit the red with animal print was a suggestion by YorkshireLass.
