    Christmas tree skirt

    I finished up my first Christmas tree skirt. Here is the front and back.

    There are things I like about it and things that I don't like about it. But I learned somethings so I might give it another try

    Thanks for looking and Merry Christmas!!

    A nice country feel to it.

    A very interesting binding. Can you please share how you achieved that look.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Don't you mean "here's the front and the other front"?! Both sides would be pretty under the tree...

    Merry Christmas! thank you for your kind words....yes the ruffle is the binding. I did that birthing method to get the ruffle on the edges. I was going for a "country" feel I am just not sure about the fabrics.. well I love the fabrics so maybe they just were not the best fabrics for that particular pattern

    That is wonderful. I love the binding. I bet it's either cotton that looks like satin or it is satin.

    I agree both look like fronts. I also like the ruffled binding/edging. Did you ruffle it 1st, then sandwiched it between both layers ?

    Really nice! The ruffles really take it to a new plain.

    Thank you. The binding is charmeuse satin. Yes I ruffled the satin first then I used the birthing method and layered the satin with the batting, front and back. I do like how the ruffle turned out
