Christmas Tree Skirt

This is my Christmas tree skirt. I started it when I just had 2 small children. Every year I trace each child's hand onto a piece of felt. Then I stitch the name and year and sew it with a blanket stitch onto the skirt. One of these days I'll need to add another layer to the outside edge to have room for more hand prints. I love to look back at how each child has grown.

    The whole thing is felt. I used a cup to trace the scallops along the edge.
