Quilted Christmas Stockings from Baby Clothes

"I created a contrasting pair of colorful Christmas stockings out of sentimental baby clothes. To begin with, I chose 5 pieces of clothing with coordinating colors. I cut each into 3 inch strips. Then, using a stocking template I quilted the strips directly onto the batting. Using the same stocking template, I cut out two pieces from a soft blanket for the lining. The next step was to sew together the cuff. Once all the pieces were cut out, I sewed them all together along the top edge. Finally I turned the entire stocking right side out."

Estimated CostUnder $10

You never know what to do with all the baby clothes after they grow out of them do you? I think this is such a great way to repurpose some of your favorite outfits and make an item that will last for a long time. I know my mom still has some of the stockings and such we had when we were babies, so this could last at least a generation.
