Happy Birthday Garland


I’ve seen tons of cute birthday garlands on Pinterest made from scrapbook paper, so I decided to try making one from fabric. I chose red fleece, zebra fleece, and black ribbon. Here are the steps:

(1) Cut the fleece into six-inch squares.

(2) Cut letters from scraps of the opposite color of fleece and hand stitch in one corner.

(3) Fold each square into a triangle and attach the front and back with a French knot at the bottom point and halfway up each side.

(4) Slip the triangles onto the ribbon.

(5) Sew across the tops of the triangles using a machine zig-zag stitch.

(6) Make a loop at both ends of the ribbon for hanging, and give it someone you love. ♥
