Scrappy Wreath

Just brought this out and put it on the wall. I made this wall hanging a few years ago and have taught classes on making them too. It is another project from the snippets method from Cindy Walters which I talked about in a previous post. I love using up scraps and not having to use templates of any kind. All the strips are just cut randomly with scissors after placing Steam-a-seam on the back of the fabric. Then place your strip on a background fabric. It's a little sticky so it stays where you put it and it's also repositionable so if it doesn't look good, lift it up and try it somewhere else. It doesn't become permanent until you iron it. Endless possibilities!

I've never seen this method before. It really is striking. Your Christmas is coming together Kathi!
