nfdp February already - can you believe it? I always get in a super crafty mood in February. When I (finally) put the last of the Christmas decorations away I peeked in my Valentines Day storage box and found this garland that I made a few years ago. It features the loves of my life and I used to hang it in the kitchen window above the sink...
I used leftover wrapping paper from the holidays, some twine, simple photocopies of my husband and 3 boys and a sharpie. Easy and cost free!!
my youngest looks about 7 here, he is 15 now - don't tell him I posted this... little cutie.
This year I thought I would make another garland and this is it:
I had all this felt and decided that a garland across my fireplace is what I needed. So I broke out my "SIMPLE" sewing machine ----yeah right! Sewing to me is like high school algebra - my brain freezes up just looking at this machine BUT in the interest of DIY I gave it a go
so far so good...until about 3 minutes in. Trouble starts. Luckily I was wise enough to save the directions!!
Bobbin trouble - as usual! It's always the bobbin. Then just poor sewing skills. Got it together a bit after a while. Now you sewers out there can probably do a MUCH better job than me and I hope you do because the results are super cute!
