I have a bit of an over-buying problem with fabric. Not the hoarding that comes with finding great pieces that I'll use "someday" (although, there is some of that too), but the overestimating that comes when I buy fabric for a specific project. I'm afraid that I'll be in the middle of cutting and just not have enough. I always buy a yard when I really only need a quarter. There's that lack of spatial reasoning again. So, I had lots of green and white wool felt left over from Silas' Halloween costume. I didn't really want to find a place to store it, so the decision was made to use it right now. Luckily, the colors are perfect for a little holiday cheer.
I cut the felt into strips (using the width of my ruler to determine the size--I like to keep measuring to a minimum) and then the strips into squares. After a quick bobbin winding and machine re-threading with red thread, I was all set to line those babies up and go to town. It yielded a surprising amount of garland. Enough for a tree and then some. Steve and I have always been pretty lax about Christmas decorating, but I think I might have been bitten by the bug. What's next?
