Project -- Vintage Felt Applique Tree Skirt
Christmas day has passed but working on next years felt tree skirt has begun! I have spent the past few years collecting vintage goodies to design and construct my own vintage felt tree skirt. I've aggressively sought out vintage felt, trims, sequins, beads and spangles just for this project. I have never done any felt applique and have been waiting years to give it a try. Here are some pics of what's happening. I've decided to just enjoy designing and completing the ornaments without too much planning. Later on I'll just pick and choose which ones will make it to the skirt.
Half of the fun of making something in a new medium is learning about the process. I love the research and planning stages.
I will finish the red/gold today. I am just doing whatever comes to me. I want to enjoy the process and not fret too much over the design.
