What a lovely heirloom! Leslie, I hear you on the materials $$ - the tree skirt I made had an old bedsheet for a backing, and it was made from fabulous super marked-down Home Dec fabric that cost almost nothing....but the TRIM - well the perfect trim was fancy ball fringe at $15 a yard..and I needed 7 yards ;0)...but that was 8 years ago, we still use it, and my kids cherish it. *Happy Holidays!*

Leslie, the tree skirt is absolutely gorgeous!! I can't believe your friend didn't put up a tree just so she could use it!

I have made many of these SMM skirts but none as beautiful as yours!

I agree that it's a lovely tree skirt -- what stunned me is that little comment, "2 yrs ago, the first year I had my machine . . ." You truly are an inspiration, Leslie! Thank you.

That is lovely. And with that investment, you had to make it come out nicely! Thanks for the link to the instructions. I'm always surprised at how expensive tree skirts are to buy "RTW".

Extremely ambitious first project! And velvet stockings for the pets too! What a lucky friend you have.

This is wonderful. I need a tree skirt but have been totally uninspired to make one...until today. I doubt I can it for this year, but maybe for next...and maybe I'll make presents for my sisters, too. What a great way to feature gorgeous fabric. Thanks for the review.

Leslie, what a breathtaking creation! What a good friend you are. Did she put up the tree?

I'm happy to report that my friend had a Christmas tree this year, adorned by a lovely purple velvet tree skirt. They had even hung the matching stockings. Alas, in their new home the tree is in a different room from the loveseat that inspired me. Also, their huge home requires an enormous tree that makes the skirt look dinky. Still, it's as beautiful as I remembered!
