To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: December 10, 2008 08:43:38 AM »


Last year was all about Christmas crafting for others, this year is about Christmas crafting for the house.  I was all set to get my fix with felted ornaments but when I saw the gorgeous patterns that Amy Butler put up for Christmas on her website for FREE,  I knew I had to make at least one of them.  Although you cant see it an any of these pictures I have a bit of a Charlie Brown Tree, not very full and obviously fake, but I love it anyway, especially with the addition of Christmas Tree scent :smile: .  What I didnt love was the fake snow blanket that surrounded it every year.  Now at least the bottom of my tree looks like a million bucks!

Pattern: Amy Butler Tree Skirt

Fabric Used:
     Trim - Michael Miller Pod Ditz

     Inner Fabric - Quilted Fabric from JoAnns

     Lining Fabric - New Chick on the Blocks Ever Changing Shapes

Notions Used: 1.5″ covered buttons

Pattern Alterations: Used quilted fabric instead of wool felt, used 1.5″ buttons instead of 2.5″, no interfacing

The tree skirt is gorgeous!! I love the buttons. That's a fabulous idea. My fiance and I just went to the dollar store for a tree skirt, but next year you better believe I will have a homemade one like this!!
