These do hold up a fair amount of weight and would make for a fun family activity. If you can tie a knot you can make these!
An old stocking to use as a pattern
1 yd fleece material
½” matching ribbon
Hot Glue (optional)
Fold your fabric in half and place your old stocking on the fabric making sure you have around 3 inches of extra fabric all around the stocking. Cut the stocking out about 3 inches from your old stocking (pin the old stocking in place so it doesn’t move on you. Then cut the fringe from the edge to where the old stocking is (be careful not to cut the other stocking). Cut the fringe all the way around the sock except for at the top. Then make the ribbon lacing slots as shown in the picture below (each cut is about 1/2” apart). (you can click on the picture to see a larger version)
Once the sock is all cut out, follow these instructions (click on picture for larger image):
