O Christmas Tree...

The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas trees are perfect!
~Charles N. Barnard

I wanted to do something a little different than the usual red and green this year for my girls. My little kiwis are in white batiste from Christmas Past, so I just had my two Birmingham sweeties to sew for.  I let the design from Applique Corner dictate the colors.  The tree was whimsical, so I used lime green and red on a blue corduroy.  The little hanging star was embroidered with Gutterman gold metallic thread.  I slowed the machine down and didn't have a problem with the thread breaking.
For some reason both my Ipad and Iphone photograph the tree's fabric as yellow, when it is really a pretty bright green.
Happy Christmas sweet Katelyn and Sarah.  I hope they fit!


  1. These look really cute - a fresh change from the typical Xmas look for girls. Off to have a peek around your blog...J

  2. I have been away from it for quite some time, I hope I'm back for awhile! Thanks for the visit!
