fabric garland

Our (artificial) tree was up, but only with lights on it.  I didn't want anything tinselly which Dolly might be tempted to chew on.  After eyeing some red gingham cotton on my shelf for a few days,  today I cut it into strips and made a garland. It was easy to cut - I just followed the checkered lines.

No sewing - I simply knotted each strip together.

It looks much more cheerful now.

And made with fabric from the stash!      

p.s. It's almost 8 'clock and I just heard a noise in the living room -

This is blurry, but I had to work fast. She just caught a bit of it at the bottom, but I hope she doesn't do it again!!                                                                                                                                


  1. What a wondeful idea! I may copy you, I have some turkey red check in my stash that would look great! I had to chuckle at the kitty picture, she IS a sweetheart!

  2. Oh no! I love how instead of trying to stop the cat, you rushed to take a shot before it was over! ha! :)

    I'm stopping by from The Little List's {inhabit}. I hope you'll do the same! You can find mine @
