I am trying to not start any new projects or buy any new supplies until I finish up the old ones. (This decision is also probably contributing to the lack of projects on the blog lately).
I've wanted to make myself a new Christmas skirt for the past dozen years or so, but have just never got around to it. This year, I was determined and even went so far as to buy some fabric, which has been lying in a pile on the floor mocking me since November.
So last week, I started on this baby and it has taken me an entire freaking week.
|(not an actual Christmas tree)|
I used this tutorial (http://jakeandbaylee.blogspot.com/2011/11/christmas-tree-skirt-tutorial.html).
I was worried the original wouldn't be big enough so I added a few layers to mine.
row 1: 2 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 2: 4 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 3: 6 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 4: 7 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 5: 8 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 6: 9 pieces of 6" x 42"
row 7: 10 pieces of 6" x 42"
Also, because I am insane, I finished all my edges.
It was a tedious project and I am sure I will have dreams that I am being smothered by ruffles for weeks to come, but I am thrilled with how it turned out. I guess I can actually put it out it in a mere 3 months.
