friendship garland


My daughter has so many cute friends, but unfortunately not many of them live close to us.

I decided to make her something to help her feel closer to her girlfriends that live far away.  I saw a paper doll garland on Pintrest that sparked an idea.




This garland was super simple and cheap to make.  The most expensive part was the fabric stiffener I used to make the dolls stand upright.  I used scraps of fabric for the dresses.  One important thing, as I have said before, is to use good felt. I have a local quilt shop that sells quality felt. Search one out. It will make a lot of difference in your end product.

Top roll:
Charley, Patterson, Ivy
Bottom roll:
Eloise, Amelie, Emerson

Sturdy and nice leather bag, was bigger than expected, and also the exterior leather is also very soft and comfortable feels. It is very functional as I have been using this leather hobo bags for a week, works very great so I'd like to advise http://leatherhobobag.webs.com/apps/webstore here.
