Have you been checking out the Christmas fabrics that are being released? I have yet to find one that is just calling to me like I did last year. I have been feeling pretty Christmas-y though, so imagine my excitement when I ran across my tree pants that I never finished last year. I had some injuries and drama around the holidays last year, and the tree never even got put up. Finding a baggie of forgotten tree pant parts was exciting today and I got the project all pieced together.
I know, icky picture. I don't have enough room in my current place to spread this thing out. I had to take it outside. The good news is that apparently if you get close enough to the ground there is a breeze. You'll probably get 3rd degree burns on the pavement trying though....you've been warned! It's cute though, right? All the bits lined up and everything.
Ooh- action shot! Can you believe I had all the blocks done and the sashing? All I had to do was piece it all together. It took maybe an hour! That was very satisfying. I need to quilt and bind it still, but binding is my favorite part. It gives me a guilt free excuse to sit in front of the TV and "do nothing". If you want to make tree pants the pattern was free and part of Sew, Mama, Sew's Christmas Sew Along. I can't wait to see what she does this year.
Yes, I ordered another yard of fabric I used to make the outside of my Texas totes! I want to make one for me...and one for a friend of course! Whew, it feels good to confess that to someone.
Merry Christmas in July!
