{ I Sewed A Tree Skirt!}

This afternoon, after a long day of shopping in the big city of Roanoke, Mr. Pie and I stopped at our favorite locally owned tree dealer to pick up our Christmas tree!  She's a beauty!

Oh my goodness! What's that wrapping delicately around the base of our tree? 

Well well well.  That's the new tree skirt I sewed ALL BY MYSELF!   Yep, you read that right!  Isn't that fabric to die for?    I absolutely adore it!  The tree skirt reversible too with a solid red linen texture fabric that's just as gorgeous!  Both fabrics were bought at on Black Friday when they were 50% off, so with shipping two yards of each was $36.  Mr. Pie also bought me the pretty red thread and some new heavy-weight needles for my sewing machine.  I got to figure out how to install new needles! hehehe

I'll be the first to admit that it isn't perfect, but I love it.  This tree skirt is just the kind of project that I like - simple and beautiful.  Nothing fancy, just two doughnut shaped fabric sewed together with some ties to close it up.   This is also the first time I've had to sew circles!

What do you think?  Can you tell I'm happy as a clam and proud as a peach?? :)


  1. It looks great! The fabric is just gorgeous!!

  2. Cool..very festive..any leftovers? could cut out and lightly pad the flower or leaf shapes..and sew sequins and sparkly beads on...maybe a thought for nxt year..It looks grand!! next piccie with it dressed pls..can't have nude trees parading around can we?!!!!!

  3. It's gorgeous! You did a marvelous job! Betcha got to use some of that math of yours too, didn't you while figuring out the circumference and radius of your inner and outer circles. LOL
    I'm sewing a tree skirt today. I'll hopefully have pictures posted later today. Good job on your sewing project! Thanks for sharing. Happy Sunday! :o)
