DIY Christmas with Kunin Felt

 

Christmas Garland
It's Christmas time so that means new decorations to mix with the old. My sweet princess has a Candy Land themed tree here at our house. I used Kunin Felt to make a super cute Christmas garland for her tree. She loves the color combo of pink and aqua so those are the colors I concentrate on. For this project I added in some white as well. 


Kunin Felt

Kunin felts and fabrics are made in the U.S.A. of Eco-fi® 100% polyester fiber, made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles.

I started with 3 colors of felt and an older Sizzix die. Like really older. As in for the old red Sizzix machine from the stone age! I love those dies and use them all the time.  Anyway,, Aqua, Pink, and White felt and lots and lots of circles!

Cutting Circles

I cut 20 circles of each size from each color of felt. Which got me 240 circles- so more than enough. I love that I can cut multiple layers at a time with these steel rule dies. It really makes projects like this go quicker.

I mixed all the pieces up pretty well. I wanted a truly organic look and did not plan any pattern for the garland. I just grabbed from a pile as I sewed. There were 4 sizes of each color so it ended pretty easy to sew them randomly and still look great. 

 


Sewing it all together was pretty easy too. This is a great project for a beginner sewer. The machine does most of the work and all you have to do is feed the circles in. I had the speed set to pretty slow. I am really trying to spend more time enjoying the process instead of just rushing through. I used my Brother Sewing Machine - I love this thing. It is a workhorse!!

 

Felt Garland

Ta-da! I used a medium stitch length for this garland and a cotton quilting thread on top and bottom. I cut the garland into manageable lengths and headed to the tree.

It looks great with and without lights! I love it. I think I may need a to do a few more feet to get the coverage I want on the tree though.

  3. Examining the relationship between number of playing codecs engaged in frequently and cash spent in the past 12 months on playing, the relationship was weak (− zero.20, 95% CI, -0.22, − zero.17). The relationship between frequency of playing in the past 12 months and involvement was moderate (0.forty, 95% CI, zero.38–0.43). While not robust, these outcomes counsel that playing involvement is positively related to playing intensity. Figure3 illustrates the overall share of people experiencing a playing downside and those not experiencing a playing downside across number of playing codecs. Among people not experiencing a playing downside, 45% gamble on just one format, while amongst people experiencing a playing downside, 16% gamble on just one format. Among people not experiencing a playing downside, because the number of month-to-month playing codecs increases, the proportion decreases, with less than 8% participating in 4 코인카지노 or more playing codecs on a month-to-month basis.
