Yesterday, I completed this ruffle Christmas tree from my vintage fabric. I found a tutorial for making these little trees. I bought the styrofoam base at JoAnns. I tore my fabric along the selvage and did the ruffle stitching on the selvage. I used my Janome11000 and my new ruffler foot. I purchased the foot last weekend during the Janome demo days at a local sewing machine store. The top of the tree is a drawer pull painted with silver paint and the base of the tree is a blue candle stick. I purchased the candle stick last year at the thrift store.
Completing the little table top display is a glass tree and little silver tray. They are recent thrift store purchases. The aluminum tree is from Walmart. A silver footed dish from the thrift store serves as the tree base. I'm really liking the blue theme.
I'm so excited, I found the perfect white tree on Saturday. I had searched at a number of stores recently but couldn't find the perfect tree. Saturday I found it. It's in the box waiting to be opened.
