so I wasn't disappointed that it didn't turn out perfect.
Last night I made two more fabric garlands.
One is a traditional Christmas red and green.
The second garland is a muslin with blue striped ticking.
The red and green check fabrics were thin,
so cutting them into 8.5"x2" strips worked wonderfully.
One yard of each fabric,
yielded a three foot garland.
The muslin and ticking fabrics were a little thicker than the check,
so the strips were cut into 1" widths.
The difference in volume can be seen in the photos.
So if you're looking for a full, well filled garland,
the 2" width should give you this.
If you like the garland a little less voluminous,
the 1" width may be just for you.
If you make a garland and would like to share a photo,
please feel free to post it on my Facebook wall.
Today 2ndEssence shared a photo of the garland
she added to her mantle.
after being inspired by my previous blog post.
The barn door has been used as a background in a number of my photos recently.
