The living room. Where we live? Actually we spend most of our time in our studios & kitchen but this room is where we live with some of our favorite collections while cozying up with a movie. This year I brought out new collections and Christmassized some of the older ones.
Here’s how to make fabric wreaths:
- Cut 4 matching strips of 100% cotton fabric. Arrange them alternating front to backsides so that the front of the pile has the front of the fabric and the back of the pile also has the front of the fabric. For these bird sized wreaths I cut 1″ x 6″-7″. You can cut any size but as it gets larger you will want more layers and you may need to support the wreath to keep the circle shape.
- Sew down the center of the strips back tacking at the beginning and at the end leaving long threads at each end. Snip randomly up to thread on each side to make fringe.
- Wet the sewn strip and rough it up under water, scrunching and rubbing. Throw into a hot dryer with another load of clothes. As it dries it balls up and becomes more wreath like.
- Tie the 2 ends of the wreaths together twisting the wreath as you go, knot then clip them off. Sewn on “berries” if desired!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s post. The final post will be coming to you soon just in time for Christmas. With love, Jane
