I'm finally getting around to posting my Christmas tree skirts. I made 3 this year. That's right 3! Never again!
I realized after starting this project that I #1 hated Christmas fabric, and #2 procrastinate when I hate a type of fabric. Overall, I am pleased with how they turned out and glad I made them.
The first part of the project was cutting strips. I had to cut 80 strips per skirt. That's 240 strips total.
I then sewed them into blocks of 10 before I started cutting!
Once all the strips were cut, I then made a template out of freezer paper and began cutting them into the right shape.
I used the same freezer paper method with the border fabric.
Here's what the panels looked like sewed together.
Machine quilting is my favorite part. I did holly leaves on one, swirls on the second one, and snow flakes on the last one. Here's a look at a finished skirt!
I finished the first two before Christmas. Mine came after. Such is life!
