Scrollwork & Santafur Tree Skirt
One year Milord gave me some odd-but-lovely fabric for Christmas–about 1 yard of scarlet velveteen with gold scrollwork… in paint. It was beautiful, but not suitable for garments. It sat in my stash for a couple of years until it finally spoke up and said, TREE SKIRT! It was perfect. Except it was too small. I needed another 4″ or so, so I thrashed around for a border fabric… until I hit on the splendid idea of SANTA FUR!!! Such a quick project–just a circle cut from the velvet, with the outer edge trimmed in 4″ wide fur. No more finishing than that. I bought some pretty rope trim, and some narrower fur for the inner ring… but decided it didn’t need anything else.
