Fabric Scrap Christmas Garland

This is a fun garland I made several years ago with leftover fabric scraps
from various projects.  All the fabric pieces are about 3x3.  I lined them up 
and sewed them together at the ends to form a long garland, then wrapped 
them around 1" cording; pinned, sewed and cut the edge with pinking shears.

I wrap it tightly around a shoe box lid for storage.

I didn't use the fabric garland this year because I've changed our tree color
scheme up a bit, but this is an old photo I found where you can see it 
in the background....if you can get past that cutie in the foreground. 
(My daugher 5 years ago!)

My garland was made with leftover scraps, but you could use 3 or 4 coordinating
fabrics as well.  Hmmmm, maybe a new garland in creams is in my future?!

I'm linking to the following parties:


  1. Cute, Petie and very clever too. Hope you are well:) Have a wonderful day.

  2. This is a great idea! I love this garland. Thanks so much for sharing.

  3. I can't decide which is cuter: your daughter or the garland. =) Okay both win!

    Coming over from Coastal Charm and so glad I did!


  4. That is by far one of the cutest all time garlands I've EVER seen. Does your daughter still look so much like you, Petie! She sure looked like you then. This is an inspiring project. Thank you for sharing it on the Boardwalk Bragfest!

  5. It is hard to get past that cutie but I love the fabric garland!
