How To Make A Rose Garland From Fabric Off-Cuts

How To Make A Rose Garland From Fabric Off-Cuts

Hello!  We've been having lots of fun in our Studio in the last few weeks.  We've been working out what we can do with our fabric off-cuts, to make the best use of the leftovers from our larger pieces of work.

As a sustainable business, it's important to us to reduce any waste from our making, as much as possible, as we work towards becoming a zero waste business. That's one of the reasons why we have created some products with fabric stuffing, like our lovely Reusable Eco Sponges and larger Draught Excluders.  We use every bit of excess material, often soft bamboo or scraps of linen, to ensure that we have absolutely no waste.

Before Christmas, we had so many downloads for our free pattern on How to Make A Christmas Card from fabric off cuts that we decided to find another use for our wonderful linen selvedges.

And so, with a bit of trial and error, our lovely Rose Garland was gradually created!

It's a fun, creative project, which can be done in stages or while sitting down one evening.  It requires a little finger dexterity and some patience, but I am sure that you'll agree that it's really worth the effort.  As a no-sew craft project, it can be achieved without any sewing expertise!

Use this lovely fabric Rose Garland as a decoration around the house or as a beautiful ribbon, to wrap around a present.
