It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas...

Yep.  I made my Christmas tree skirt in April!!!  Last year I had SO many Christmas projects that I wanted to complete for the boys and our home, and I got NONE of them done due to lack of time...so why not get started early?!

When I discovered I would be able to play with this adorable Brrr line from Laurie Wisbrun , I just knew I HAD to make some cute Christmas goodies with it!

I had a really hard time deciding just what I was going to make, but when I saw this pattern available from Fourteen May, I knew that was it!  I loved everything about it.  Especially the pom pom trim!  I'm a sucker for pom pom trim!

I didn't follow the pattern exactly, made a few changes...the biggest one being the bias tape all the way around the edges.  I am thrilled with how it turned out.  Mostly because of the fabric!

The fabric I used for the bias tape is from the Brrr line too.  It reminds me of those little candy dots that are stuck to the paper...no? :)  I especially LOVE the colors!  Aqua, Red, White, and Coral.  My favorites!!!!  I love that it's not "traditional" for Christmas.  

Griffin wanted a picture with the tree skirt too.  He was feeling a little left out. 

Notice the snowflake stitching around the edge?  

I am a lucky girl to have had this opportunity to have such gorgeous fabric to make this with!  Thank you Laurie, and Robert Kaufman!  The polar bears are incredibly adorable!!!

Don't worry, the Brrr line by Laurie Wisbrun is due to hit stores in June!!!  You'll have plenty of time to make cute things before Christmas too! :)  

I have a few more things in mind for this fabric, I can't wait to show you guys!
