At our last machine embroidery class this term I showed the ladies how to make the components to construct one of these fabric garlands. There wasn't time in one class to finish a full sized garland so I made a mini one... about 8" in diameter.
I then thought they would be fun to make to sell at the market at the weekend... except with one thing and another I didn't get around to it. Which was why I was up late sewing last Friday evening so that I had a small critical mass of garlands to display. Okay... three garlands, not quite a critical mass!
Of course I didn't sell them so I now have three little garlands. They are ten pounds each plus p & p should you be remotely interested... just email me!
