I have become rather intrigued with felt garlands. Last Christmas I sewed together a string of circles from double sided scrapbooking papers to make a lovely twirly Christmas garland - but I have never made them from felt... until now
This is my first one (and I have a few more in the planning stages)
The colours and the design are fairly unimaginative, next time I will create something a little more interesting! - however it has been a good learning experience.
I have never sewn with nylon thread before. It is very slippery - I need to check my machine settings and manual.
The spacing of each flower is a little too close - I could have spaced them out more to get a 'floatier' look.
I need to work out the best way to space them - if I run my machine a few stitches with no material to sew the nylon thread twists and catches easily - maybe if I arrange the flowers on tissue paper and use the tissue to sew through in between the felt pieces?
