Our granddaughter Ally asked to have her family birthday party at our house (happy face!), so I decided to make some colorful, festive, girly garland to offset the autumn décor. First, I put on a good movie and cut out a bazillion or so circles from my felt stash (using a peanut butter jar lid as a template). Then I arranged the circles in color patterns, moved to the sewing machine, and stitched them together down the middle with edges touching. Finally, I draped them around the room, ready to add table decorations, balloons, a cake, and gifts. She loved it! ♥
Sewing down the middle!! So simple ……. and yet I’d NEVER think of it. Thank goodness I have your blog!
ooo that is simple! And so cute! I’m sure she did love it.
Nice!! And I must say, I adore the sunflower paintings in the background! Absolutely beautiful.
