Way back when (in Septemberish), my sister made a beautiful Autumn rag wreath. I liked it so much that I had her help me make one during our South Carolina visit in October.
On Chris's side of the family, the adults do not exchange Christmas gifts. While it's nice to not have to worry about what to get everyone, I kind of hate that we don't get his parents anything for Christmas. I mean, I actually like giving people gifts.
So this year, I decided that I would make something for his parents around Christmastime just because I wanted to gift them something. The rag wreath immediately came to mind! Although it's pretty much for his mom more than his dad, I knew she'd like it and that made me happy.
I began with one yard of four different patterns of fabric (purchased at my favorite store . . . the Hob Lob). Using pinking shears, I cut the entire yard of fabric into strips:
Then, I chose 3 colors of tulle and cut 32 strips of each color. Again, not worrying about it being perfect in any way.
