Sew Your Own Garland

Do you love the current trend of sewn garlands as much as I do?  But here is my problem, I tend to be a bit of a hoarder and I get afraid to use it all up in case I won’t have it to use on the next project.

Now before you lecture me about how silly that is, I’ll save you the trouble.  I know.  I KNOW!  But still, I suffer from this sickness anyway.

However, in the area of the fabulous sewn garland, I have discovered that it is quite easy to create ones own garland.  The beautiful thing about this is that you could create a garland using any shape your heart desires and any paper your heart desires to match whatever kit you happen to be working on. What could be better?!

All you need to do is punch or die cut enough shapes to create the length of garland you want and run the shapes through the sewing machine, leaving a bit of space in between each piece. Easy peasy!

And you can make extra so you’ll be able to simply cut off how ever much you need!

Here’s how I used the garland I created with November’s Scrapbook Circle kits, Harvest Moon and Traditions.

Another little tip for you, I popped some of the garland pieces up off the page using some pop dots for added dimension.
