'Cause it's my birthday, and because I really like the way this project turned out...I'm sending a tutorial your way today!
I have always harbored a love of rag garlands, but they look kind of intimidating to a girl who can basically make a bobbin pop right out of a sewing machine with a single glance. So much fabric must involve sewing right?
Um...no actually. I looked closer at one in a store not too long ago and oh, hey! Rags = frayed edges, which in turn means no sewing. So, I rummaged in my basement once again to see what I could come up with, and found a stained tablecloth, and an old pair of red yoga pants that may or may not have had words across the bum. (Seriously...why was that ever a good idea?).
I started cutting strips about 8 inches long and 1 inch wide, then when I had two considerable piles of rags, I started knotting.
Now...I think this garlands rightful home is draped along a mantel, but we do not have a mantel in this house, so I draped ours over the door, which I still loved!
