Tied with a Ribbon's Yule Christmas Tree Skirt
How sweet and charming is this tree skirt!? One of the fun things about being in a new place, is that we get to decorate for the Holidays! I found this pattern, by Tied with a Ribbon, on Etsy a couple of weeks ago. She's got quite a few whimsical, adorable, droolworthy patterns available. I've completed the tree skirt, and I'm working on the applique for the tree skit. I've got all the pieces stuck on with heat'n'bond, just need to get them stitched. I'm using the triple straight stitch for applique, it has a charming hand embroidered look to it.
I used Superior Razzle Dazzle couching thread and bobbin work for the star detail and the fairy lights. It adds just enough sparkle.
I used lovely Kaufman linen for the main fabric. I thought it added a really nice modern edge to this project. I'm planning on using the orangey-pink of that one house for the binding fabric. The directions don't call for lining this, but I definitely want to hide all of my stitching on the back.
