Because of crazy college schedules and nutty family stuff, I got married just a few days before Christmas (December 22nd - sheesh!). And my birthday is a week before Christmas. You would think that with my birthday, anniversary, and Christmas going on in the same week I might try to tone down Christmas. But it's actually the opposite - I LOVE Christmas! And I love to sew in anticipation of this glorious holiday all year long too! But to be honest, I have found that I NEED to get my holiday sewing started early because if I wait until December it's far too late to get much done.
That's why I'm so excited that when Craftsy asked me to collaborate with them on a Quilted Tree Skirt pattern, they planned it to release now - just as all the beautiful holiday fabrics are hitting the shops and you still have time to sew the best Christmas ever, right??? Well, it was released today!!! I'm so excited that my new video class from Craftsy is here and it's a Christmas tree skirt!
And I won't be shy about one other thing... this class is a HUGE bargain! Because of what Christmas means to me (read more about that here), I poured all my love into this project and designed the most beautiful tree skirt I could imagine.
I know you don't have time to waste, so I used easy strip piecing with pre-cut 2 1/2'' strips (jelly roll strips!) and I provide a template for cutting the star blades from sewn strip sets. Don't worry, I share tips along the way to help you easily make every seam line up so that it looks like you spent hours painstakingly piecing every little fabric. Make sure you keep the actual time spent on it a secret! :)
Make your tree skirt complete with cute button closures and these no-hassle tassels that I will show you how to make with ordinary skeins of embroidery floss! Or put jingle bells on the star points - wouldn't that be fun?
The class materials include complete instructions, the star blade template, plus a coloring page to help you explore every design possibility.
If I were to sell the pattern myself I would ask at least $12 for it, maybe more. But Craftsy packaged it all together with 4 high quality video lessons, lifetime access, instructor interaction (from me!), and a money-back guarantee. All for only $10. Oh, and did I mention that I can share an exclusive link for 50% off? I'll go ahead and do that now...
