|Turn your fabric scraps into beautiful garland|
Congrats to Meghan at LOVEPETUNIA, you are the winner!
|Twenty five finished garlands, part of a Christmas order for a local store. Click on pictures for larger view.|
|Garland displayed in my entryway at recent holiday show.|
|Garland on white Christmas tree.|
|Cut a 6 foot piece if seam binding. Lay your first fabric square face down. Sandwich the seam binding between the first square and the next one that is face up. Mix up your squares, layer smaller ones on larger.Anything goes with this project.|
|Continue to sew your squares to your seam binding. I like to use sheet music, book pages, ribbon, wool, anything that adds texture and interest.|
|Layer shear ribbon here and there.|
|When you get to the end of your seam binding, you are finished with the first step of your garland.|
|Don't worry if you have spaces between some of your squares. You will be tying various ribbons and fabric between them that will hide the seam binding gap.|
|Cut 4-5 inch strips of fabric, lace, ribbon, yarn, seam binding or anything you think fits into the color theme.|
|I usually tie in between every three squares.|
|Ready for hanging|
