Roll Up!

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.
