Some merriment for the domicile: a circly garland from fabric scraps and offcuts. This is a sweet and easy project for putting those bags of fabric offcuts and scraps to use (which surely do mount up when sewing and even more so if you're
hoarder thrifty inclined as I am)
all you need is:
+ quantity of fabric scraps in festive shades: for mine I choose cream, reds, grey linen, natural calico, and sage green (from an old cardigan)
+a pair of sharp scissors
+sewing machine & thread
+using your scissors cut out rough circles of varying sizes in your fabric - to make things easier and faster fold over bigger pieces of fabric in half (and even half again) to cut four circles at one time.
+get your sewing machine ready on a normal straight-stitch setting - pull a generous amount of thread from the needle and bobbin to begin with (you will use this to hang one end of your garland up)
