Here it is hanging in my house...ready to go to the party!!
She also cut circles in burlap. Great combination!!
This project is fast and easy...come on in and see!!!
I gave her my Accuquilt cutter and the circle die, so the project was so easy to cut up. The circles are made from stiffened felt. You can buy it in any craft store. You can also use regular felt, but the stiffened type has a little more structure to stand up on it's own.
You will just chain piece the circles on your sewing machine.
Chain piecing is feeding the circles through the needle, leaving a space of about 1/4 inch, then feed the next circle in. You will NOT cut the thread, just "sew" the space in with a chain of thread.
Here they are coming out the back of my machine.
She wanted the garland to be whimsical and not in a set pattern. I am a very symmetrical, organized person, so it took all my power not to have a certain pattern of how I sewed the circles. I just went for it and I love how it turned out!!
See...no set pattern. Although you could definitely have a pattern...large to small, or alternate sizes or 2 large then 2 medium with a small in the middle. The possibilities are endless.
Here is the burlap I sewed together.
Hang it separately or next to your colored circles.
Perfect for a sweet little boy!!
I have other party ideas coming soon and hopefully I can share some of her actual party pictures when the big day arrives.
Thanks for stopping by,
