Beth Munroe, who owns Mrs Pugsley's Emporium, dropped by last week to show me a Christmas stocking she had designed using the "roll up" pillowcase method. It was a "why didn't I think of that?!" moment. I think it's brilliant!! She posted the directions on her blog and using her sock template, I tried it out. It's so simple. Three seams and you're done.
Mrs P's sock has two colours in the cuff, but I just used one. I hope to make several and use them as gift bags, trying a ribbon on the seamline where the cuff meets the sock. Less than 15 minutes start to finish, and all seams are enclosed in a French seam.
Beth is happy to share the instructions on her blog.
