    Christmas Tree Skirt found in antique store

    I'm so excited. I found this at the antique store that I work in once a week. It was only $6.50 and the pattern is awesome because I love Christmas trees. There isn't any quilting and no label to say when or who made it. But I love it. I just might use it for a throw.Name:  Christmas Tree Skirt 001.JPG

    I like that, too! I think it would make a great throw.

    Use the tree hole as a neck hole? and wear it like a poncho?

    It's a pattern that could easily be re-made!
    Love the plaid trees!

    It is very sweet. Great you could rescue it.

    It's adorable. The person who made that must have been a happy soul.

    What a great find. The plaids in this pattern are terrific for the trees. A great piece!
