Autumn Garland

I made this for @PrincessP in a personal swap. She lives in Australia where autumn starts in March. Luckily it only took a couple weeks to arrive!

It is very difficult to take a nice photo of a garland! Here all all the leaves before I assembled the garland:

It’s roughly 60” long with a little extra at either end for tying. I cut a 60” piece of yarn and did a mock-up on the guest room bed (center point marked with the scissors.

I struggled with the color combinations at first, but I was happy with the finished product. The rejected leaves have been repurposed as stuffing for repaired dog toys.

@PrincessP made me this fabulous sewing machine cover.


I remember you making all those leaves…know I know why! It looks great!

Ooh, fun! While it doesn’t get the details, I do like the last picture of it hanging up.

Thank you! I didn’t want to ruin the finished product until she had received it. I’m glad it arrived to her so quickly.

What a great combination of the desire to get cozy that comes with autumn and the images of leaves turning color and falling.

I was also curious to see how the leaves were going to be used! What a lovely way to show off fall in all of those colors!

Lots of effort went into making this…all those leaves!

Ooooh. So pretty. After draping my house in so much garland over Christmas, I miss it. Beautifully done and great colors.
