Recycled nighty to baby girl christmas stocking

Since I am trying to save money on christmas this year I have been trying to think what I can make out of materials I have lying around rather than run out and buy. Since last year the children decided it would be a good idea to wear the christmas stockings like socks (and rip holes in the bottom of two of them!) I need to replace two christmas stockings.

This stocking is made out of a nighty that was too small and is intended for Emily who will be 16 months oldĀ  at christmas.

The stocking shape i simply drew around one of the surviving stockings from last year (to ensure there were no “but hers is BIGGER than mine” arguments) and the pocket was just cut from the front of the nighty and sewn on. The edging around the top was just the edging around the neck of the nighty.
