OK, I will admit, I am suddenly obsessed with maps. I made these coasters and and this circle party garland (which by the way looked great at the birthday party this weekend).
So I cut circles from an old atlas (25 cents at Salvation Army) which was falling apart. The pages were still in excellent shape. I cut the circles and sewed them together using quilting thread (which is stronger than regular sewing thread).
I used each state twice (except for Delaware I think because there just wasn't enough of it left over), so there are over a hundred circles in this garland.
I thought it would be great for a classroom or just a boys room or even an office.
I left tails on the thread and knotted them so they wouldn't come undone.
Sorry for the poor quality pics, no sunshine today!
Did you notice my feline assistant in the first picture? Mama Kitty is my quality control inspector.
