  1. quilted mini Christmas tree skirt

    August 24, 2014 by Angie

    I wanted to complete a quick project for our house before I started my new job. (That’s right! I have a new job!) I’ve seen quite a few quilted Christmas tree skirt patterns that I really like but, because we are doing tiny trees while Sookie is a tree-eating puppy, I didn’t want to go all out on a big, complicated tree skirt yet. I found and used this mini tree skirt tutorial from The Tulip Patch. It is really perfect for covering the base that comes with our small, live Christmas tree. I can’t wait to use it!
