A couple of you have asked for tutorials on the finger garland and the poms, so I thought I'd lead you to some links. First of all, when you start making poms, you won't stop. They are so fun and they brighten everything. Here's a great tutoria.l These things were ALL OVER the last craft fair I went to. I added them to my fall wreath to make it more fun.
Here's great tutorial for the finger garland. This is a lot of fun to do, also... especially if you have a little one around to help. :) After I finished my garland, I just cut some leaves out of various fabrics and zigzag stitched them to some felt to keep them flat. Then I cut up a few more poms to give it a little weight and nice texture. I used the finger weaving last year to make a really pretty garland for my Christmas tree. I plan to do it again this year, but in a different color.
Annnnd, not that I have any amount of free time, really, but I would really like to make this:
I think that crocheted wreath is SO pretty. It really wouldn't take much time-- maybe I can squeeze it in. ;) I'm also planning to make a braided rag rug soon, so we'll see how all of this goes. I think it's mostly internal rebellion-- not wanting to be sewing every second of the day, but knowing I have so much work to do in the next month to prep for this festival. Anyway, I hope these are a few things to make your weekend even better! <3 Katie
