I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I looooove candy corn....thus the last 4 post....and the one after this....and the one after that...and the one after that.... I prefer to eat it, but I kinda dig the colors, and I like the way it looks on a garland as well. Here's my imperfect candy corn garland making process...I was going for the homemade look. Yup, that's right, and I acheived it. ;o) It's never a problem to convince people my stuff is homemade. ;o)
Sew three strips (about 2 inches each) of fabric together (this would be fun with a collection of different orange/yellow/and white fabrics, but that would take money/forethought/andshoppingtime, so...). I cut the tri-color strips down to about four inch pieces...
I used a solid yellow for the back, mostly b/c I was tired of sewing, and had an excess of pale yellow fabric. I folded the two in half, and then cut the basic shape of a candy corn. I guess you could make a template, but I like to live on the wild side.
See....I'll even post a picture sideways, because I'm wild like that.
Next thing you know I'll be running with the scissors while I cut out candy corns. On a side note, see those scraps? I save them and use them for stuffing for crafts like this. I'm only writing that information b/c I often worry about the memory that is supposedly stored in my head, and I don't want to forget. Not because it's sooooo clever, just b/c I don't want to forget. I don't like forgetting this, and if I forget things I wish I could complete the process and forget what I forget so I don't have to be frustrated about forgetting. After studying philosophy, and the theory of everything, I sewed the sides right side together, with a little part not sewn for the stuffing, I don't think I should talk about the theory of stuffing any further in this post, it brings up all sorts of feelings.
