I’m so excited about this garland for two reasons~
1. I actually got around to making something I had pinned on Pinterest!
2. I didn’t have to spend any money on it since I made it with leftover craft items I already had from old projects.
So, a while back I ran across this blog post (which has a really nice tutorial) showing an adorable garland made with fabric scraps. I pinned it for later and actually had time to make it today.
I searched through all my leftover fabric and pulled out any prints and colors that reminded me of fall. And I grabbed some thick twine I had bought a few weeks ago, thinking I’d use it for a project that it ended up not being needed for. (Glad I didn’t return it!)
Some of the fabric was already cut into strips (leftover from a quilt I had made a long time ago) so I cut the rest of the fabric to match the size of those.
And then I just began tying. It was easy and relaxing. After I had made some progress, I decided I didn’t really like the look of the mushroom fabric with the others so I removed it. I tried to not follow a pattern and wanted it to look kind of thrown together, but my brain had a hard time stepping out of its methodical ways. It’s not perfectly patterned though, such an accomplishment for me!
