Holiday Home Decor: Christmas Tree Skirt


Last year sometime before Christmas, I found a really neat video of Nancy Zieman making a custom tree skirt using jumbo fusible piping.  I followed her tips, made my own, and took it on a photo shoot with my Sew Crafty Houston friends.   (I also made the banner with my embroidery machine and a fun applique font, but that’s for another post.)

Here’s my tree skirt under our crafty stuff:

You can’t see much of it here, but watch Nancy’s video and you’ll get a better view of the skirt and some helpful how-to tips.  I’m also attaching a link at the bottom of this post so you can buy her tutorial and pattern if you want step by step instruction.
