|48" Diameter Christmas Tree Skirt, Designed by Lars|
Hmmm... Joy to the world, anyone???? I think it looks like that German Krampus devil that supposedly comes to punish all the bad kids who ended up on Santa's Naughty List:
See the resemblance? Anyway, back to the drawing board, because that creepy dude is NOT going under my Christmas tree!
This is more of what I had in mind:
|48" Diameter Tree Skirt, Designed by Mom|
The fabrics are not to scale and the color is a little off since they are snapshots taken with my phone rather than scanned images, but you get the general idea. I wonder if this is too ambitious to try to make before Christmas? It's for the Christmas tree in my kitchen, which is decorated with ornaments that look like candy, gingerbread men, toys, and brightly colored balls. It has a blue star on top. I have novelty print fabrics with Christmas cookies, peppermint candies, hot chocolate, and some pretty blue fabrics with snowflakes, as well as a red, green and pink stripe fabric that reminds me of peppermint sticks that I'm planning for the binding.
Now that I drew this lovely tree skirt on the computer, I wonder if I can figure out how to actually MAKE it?
I'm going to link up with Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times and with Anything Goes Monday at Stitch By Stitch.
