DIY 34: fabric garland

Hey pixels!! Yesterday we had a rainy Summer day, here in Menorca. So I spent part of the afternoon sewing this little garland. It was a funny project, and I think it’s really cute as a decoration. Perfect for that small corner of your living room, or for a dorm room at college. This is for you, college students!!! You’re welcome!!

You can also use this to decorate a child’s room or to give a touch of happiness to this little, sad corner of your house. This garland is that versatile!! I hope you’ll enjoy it. You can make it, but it’s also available at my shop on Etsy.

You’ll need:

  • sewing machine
  • a triangle or rounded template (I draw and cut mine; it’s done in 3′)
  • different fabrics (I’ve used small pieces of fabric I had at home, but you’ll need enough for at least 2 templates of each one)
  • scissors
  • white or beige satin ribbon

 

Directions:

Using the template as a guide, cut out 2 pieces of each fabric you’re using.

Sew them together (inside out), leaving the top open.

Carefully, turn them

Once you have all your triangles done, pin and sew them to the ribbon, leaving a few inches free on each side.

Decorate!!

How are you going to decorate your dorm room, my happy pixels? Or how did you decorate yours? Please, let me know in the comments below.

Materiales:

  • máquina de coser
  • patrón triangular o más redondeado (yo dibujé y corté el mío en 3′)
  • telas diferentes (he usado retales que tenía en casa, pero se necesita al menos para 2 patrones de cada una)
  • tijeras
  • cinta blanca o beige de satén

Instrucciones:

Usando el patrón como guía, corta 2 piezas de cada tela que estés usando.

Cose las dos juntas, con la parte buena de la tela hacía dentro, dejando la parte superior abierta.

Con cuidado, dales la vuelta.

Una vez tengas hechas todas tus figuras, sujétalas con agujas a la cinta, dejando unos centímetros libres en cada extremo. Cose.

¡¡Decora!!

¿Cómo decoraréis vuestro cuarto de estudiante? ¿O cómo lo hicisteis en su momento? Podéis dejar un comentario.
