How to make fabric garland


1/8 yard fabric

2 1/2 yards twill tape



sewing machine

pinking shears

First choose your fabric.

Cut 3" by 4" rectangles with pinking shears.

Space your rectangles on a your piece of twill tape 3"-4" apart. Mine are spaced every 3". Pin them in place.

Take your garland over to the sewing machine and top stitch your rectangles to the twill tape. Just sew the entire length of the twill tape, there is no need to stop and start sewing on each piece of fabric. I also sewed loops at each end of my garland so I could just loop it over the ends of my curtain rod to hang it.

Hang garland and enjoy.

This is a fun and easy way to decorate for a holiday or everyday. You can also add letters to create message banners as well.
