Sunday Stocking Special: Easy Stocking Sewing Tutorial

When we first announced the Bee Creative Stocking Swap, we had a lot of people asking if this swap was just a sewing swap. The answer is DEFINITELY NOT! We love makers of all types to participant and you are welcome to embroider/bedazzle/paint/whatever you like to a pre-made basic stocking. The main goal is really taking the time to consider what your partner would like! With that said, we know there are some of you who maybe want to branch out and make their stocking from start to finish BUT aren't necessarily great sewers. So! We put together a really simple tutorial on making a really basic stocking! It's open to anyone who like to use/modify/share it! It is certainly not a ground-breaking-world-shattering-incredible-pattern, but we hope it will serve as useful tool to beginning sewers!

Don't forget to sign up for the swap which can be found HERE
And check out Lizette's blog HERE for some awesome tips on customizing stockings as well as links to many other tutorials! She'll be doing a Sunday Stocking Special each week while registration is open so be sure to check it out!

Bee Creative Stocking Swap

Now that the Viva La Vida Swap is wrapped up, we're bring you a new swap to prepare for the Christmas season. This swap welcomes all types of crafters even if sewing a stocking isn't your specialty. Premade stockings are acceptable as long as they're embroidered/painted/bedazzled/embellished in some way to make them personalized for your partner.

Lizette, my partner in Bee Creative Swaps, will be posting some tutorials and fun stocking ideas and I may have a few to share as well so stay posted! Check out Lizette's blog here.
