Vintage Fabric Ruffle Tree



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.
