Weekend diy - lining it up

Could you estimate the ratio of your pinterest inspirations that turn into actions?

Mine wouldn't be high.

But this garland is one.

Here's my version.

Cross 7.5cm x 7.5cm.
Cut one and use as a stencil to make as many as you want.
I used 2 sheets of A4 black card.

Cut crosses.
Erase pencil markings.

Feed through sewing machine - doing your best to ensure even spacing.
I used a white lower thread and dark upper thread.

Play around with hanging options - single vertical line...

Or a more traditional garland hanging...

Before finally settling on the same arrangement you originally saw on pinterest.
