As soon as I made my last pair of tree pants I was automatically jealous and making one for myself. I know you are wondering how you can be such a good giver, what can I say I'm a natural!
It is so cute! I kind of used the same pattern, but changed up the blocks which made them slightly smaller than the original pattern. It worked out though.
I used some Valentine's Day ribbon I had already for my ties. Plus, if my tree is still up come February I can turn the skirt around and make it work!
I also love this binding. The music notes are so subtle, but such a great touch.
I bought extra of this red floral fabric to make stockings for the three of us.
And of course when people say I didn't make it, bam! Hot pink on the back. You don't get that at the store! Use what you've got, right? The fabric is Moda's Aspen Frost by Basic Grey. I still have some charm pack left. Any ideas for more Christmas stuff?
Also, I'll be at the International Quilt Festival this weekend with Holly. Let me know if you'll be around.
This is so adorable. An instant Christmas heirloom.ReplyDelete
Aw, I love it!ReplyDelete
I'm doing an all-handmade Christmas tree this year (well, other than the lights and, you know, the tree), and I want to make a tree skirt too! Won't be nearly as pretty as yours though. :)
Have fun at the quilt festival..ReplyDelete
