Simple Ragged Garland Tutorial
Can you tell Im a Christmas addict? For all us scrap savers: I dug through some old decorations & had this handmade rag garland I made from last year when my Christmas theme was "gingerbread". My colors this year I think are white & bright red ,so new handmade garland will be needed. Im going to make more but pink, white,red & maybe blue in it. Wanna make your own? This terrific for using up great scraps. I will post my new one when I finish it!
*Just make lots of 2" strips of assorted fabrics in your choice of colors, as long as possible.
*Sew ends together to make 2 super long peices(mine was 9 meters)for a 5 foot tree.
* lay your 2 strips on top of each other and zigzag down center of entire strip.
*Snip with sharp shears side by side every 1/2 " along entire strip & up other side.
*Through in the washer & dryer until raggy and fluffed up & your done!
Let me know if anyone trys it!
