Christmas is expensive. And unnecessarily stressful.
Save money, tailor them to your friends and family and do something productive in front of terrible christmas films.
I made my lovely friend a silk flower garland for her secret santa present. I tried and tested various techniques which the internet gave me:
and eventually came up with this. Its very easy to do (I made one on a train) and all you need is some scraps of fabric and a needle and thread.
1. Cut the fabricinto squares
2. Fold the fabric into thirds
3. Sew the bottom with a tacking stitch
4. Sew petals together to make flower
This is the one I made for my friend for secret santa, she’s not a fan of pink so I went for dark blue and black gauze and sewed the flowers onto black lace. The flower garland can be strung across the back of a bed or wrapped around fairy lights or worn to a festival woven around your hair.
