Amy Butler Christmas Tree Skirts

norwood tree skirt

/>mattockstreeskirtmeretreeskirtI just finished a Christmas tree skirt for Meredith and Adam, so I thought I would show some of the others I made using this pattern. I did not use wool felt, since I am allergic and if I had, I would have pieced it at the center back, since the front is open. I used 60″ wide featherwale corduroy for a couple I have made and velveteen for the other 2. On one of the velveteen, I machine embroidered a large initial. I ordered the large, 2 1/2″ covered buttons from http://www.coverbuttons.com. They carry all sizes for other projects, too.
