Holiday Bonanza: Sew Modern Christmas Stockings with Liana Allday


This post is part of Creativebug’s Holiday Bonanza. Check out the rest of the videos in the series here.

Who says Christmas stockings have to be red and green? In this class, Liana shows you how to give traditional Christmas stockings a modern makeover with fresh, vibrant fabrics. These stockings require minimal cutting and sewing, making it easy to whip up a batch for your family. The neutral linen lining and leather strap tie the palette together, making your large-scale florals and colorful prints look cohesive when they’re all hanging together over the fireplace.
