Christmas Tree Skirt: Year 2
I've been working on my family Christmas Tree skirt for over a year now(I am a month or so into year two) So, how's it coming along? I'm about halfway done making the mints that encircle it. They are all hand cut and sewn and once all the peppermint stripes are sewn on each individual mint, I will arrange them on the border and sew them into place.
It is a very large tree skirt (about 60 inches) so it will take at least 50 peppermints to finish it. Doing the math that is 300 peppermint stripes cut out and sewn. WOW!! You'd think I'd be able to finish it faster!!
