This is going to be a short but sweet entry. I made this Christmas garland based off Amy Butler's free Fabric Necklace pattern. Just follow her directions x6! The tube i sewed together ended up being about 8 and a half yards. It shrunk up to about 3 and a half yards once I added the styrofoam balls and knots. Four packages(16 per pkg.) of one inch smooth styrofoam balls was perfect for the length I made. I ended up making two for two different garland I had hung. I think it looks like candy strung together. LUV IT! I plan on making many more for my tree next year!
