A New Tree Skirt

When I was pulling out my Christmas decorations this year, I noticed that the red of my tree skirt had  bled into the white.  It must have gotten wet somehow?  So I thought it would be a good idea to toss that one and make a new one.  I gleaned what supplies I could from around the house and came up with this!  Otis is a pattern for a plushie and can be found here.


I simply cut up pieces of materials I had around the house to put him together.  A pocket from an old sweater, some burlap scraps, felt scraps, buttons, ribbon, trim, and the berries and garland I snipped from some other decorations. 


He  makes me happy!  :)
