Watching the last of January creep up on us I knew I had to sneak in just one more Christmas gift before I lost my chance. At least my Christmas tree is down. Of course, my outside lights are still going on automatically every night because it’s SO COLD I can’t even bring myself to go out and unplug them.
This is the tree skirt I made for seester Elli. It’s a shameless spinoff of one she had her eye on at Mahar Drygoods. She was covering up the bottom of her tree with towels or somesuch and I knew that had to stop.
Materials: red felt, colored ric-rac, gingham bias tape (I know you can purchase this ready-made some places, but I made it with my bias tape maker), cotton scraps.
So that’ll be it for the Christmas posts this year. Coming up soon here on MBR, something I’ve alluded to in the past but never officially produced: KNITTING!!! Also, for those of you who have been begging for the return of the Itty Bitty Baby Dress, I can tell you with confidence that it will be back up very, very soon.
