The Inspiration

I know it is not Christmas but I thought I might share a sewing project that I just completed. My inspiration photo for this project was this tree skirt from Anthropologie which is no longer available for purchase. Even if it was available I couldn’t bring myself to fork up $278.00 for this beauty. That is why I decided to take my old tree skirt and make it over. The inspiration fabrics used for this skirt are recycled saris that I purchased off of Ebay at an amazing price. So here is what I did…

I started out with some beautiful Sari fabric that I bought off of Ebay.

I used this tree skirt as a the base onto which I sewed my fabric.

I cut a large piece off fabric, pinned it down and used a embroidery stitch on my machine to sew the fabric to the base.

After all my fabric pieces were added.

At the end, I decided I to add some pom poms for embellishment.
