I LOVE these rag wreaths - so fun to make.This one is really large and I have just used a hodge podge of scrap cotton fabric - no rhyme or reason with the colors. You can pretty much cut your strips to whatever size you want - length and width. I cut mine about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide. The wreath I used is a wire one and I just tie the strips on and double knot them. You can dress them up as much as you want - adding flowers, beads, lace, etc. I chose to leave this one just as is - no frills.
