Christmas Tree Pants

Depending on your point of view, it’s either really early or kinda late to be working on a Christmas tree skirt. I figure if I start now, I’ll be ready for December 2013.

I’m actually not making a tree skirt, but rather “tree pants” using Happy Zombie’s Christmas Tree Pants tutorial. I love the red and aqua combination for Christmas. I’m using some fabrics from my stash and some new.  The background is done with Kona Snow.

I’m planning on a scrappy binding combining the reds and aquas I’ve used for the stars. And, I still need to cut a square to fit into that empty spot at the top. Not sure how I’m going to quilt it yet. Here’s some of the fabrics I used:

Aquas

  • All Wrapped Up Peppermint  from Cherry Christmas Peppermint by Aneela Hoey for Moda
  • Circles from Modern Whimsy by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman
  • Skinny Vines Aqua from Valentina for Robert Kaufman
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town by Marisa and Creative Thursday for Andover
  • Tinsel Lights Aqua from Tinsel by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics

Reds

  • Cheery Christmas Birds from Cheery Christmas by Aneela Hoey for Moda
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town by Marisa and Creative Thursday for Andover
  • Leonard Rich Red Blue from Bloomsbury Gardens by Liberty Lifestyle
