The Icing On The Cake

I thought I'd share my latest creation - this one will be finding a new home, but I'll definately be making one for myself.


As our YOE Swap is coming to an end (BIG sniff... sniff!!!), and we now all have a fantastic collection of enchanted ornaments, that will be treasured and displayed with pride each Christmas, I thought that it would only be fitting to round of our enchanted trees with an enchanted tree skirt.


This is what I came up with - it came together as I worked on it. I had no definate plan in mind when I started - I love the result:-)

The only thing I had to purchase to make it was the base fabric, the rest (felt, bias binding and trim) I had lying around in my stash - stuff I had left over from other projects:-) The patterns for the mushroom, acorn, leaves and gnome I either drew or got from kids coloring books. The owl is an adaption of the scissor keep I've posted about before.

This swap has been amazing, and I can hardly wait to get my enchanted tree up and decorated ..... hurry up December 1st!!!!
