Our friend and Uppercut art director Karen Chu Gervais wanted to make personalized stockings for her family that had a vintage feel, which she created by recycling old sweaters. We love them and asked her to guest blog this DIY —  our first in a series of holiday-themed tutorials. 

Step 1: What you'll need:

  • Assorted old sweaters (100% wool)
  • Old pillowcase
  • Sewing supplies
  • Sewing machine (optional)
  • Embroidery floss
  • Embroidery needle
  • Ribbon
What are the decorative pieces made of?
These upcycled Christmas stockings are brilliant. Thank you!
