Mitten Applique Tree Skirt & A Pillow!

Still sewing away!! Yesterday I decided to make some applique tree skirts! This was my first one.
I found the mitten pattern for free on a website that had it in SVG format so I could use it with my sure cuts a lot and my cricut. I cut out 6 pair of mittens with heat n bond and then applied it to different pieces of recycled wool sweaters. 

I ironed each pair in place and then glued on the yarn that connects each pair. It was really fun to make, but a lot more work than the others I have been working on! 

This one has a double muslin ruffle and is 54" in diameter! 

Here is a mitten pillow cover I made the night before! It makes it easier to cut up cute sweaters when this is the outcome!! 

UPDATE May 2013:
If you are interested in this tree skirt it is available in my ETSY shop! I make them to order so the mittens will not be exact. Thanks so much for stopping by!

How pretty! The tree skirt looks like something right out of a magazine. I saw this on the SNS link up and I'm a new follower!

What a lovely job you did! I was so lazy by comparison *Winks*... I had some 100 year old Burlap feedsacks that an old Farmer gave us years ago and I finally decided to utilize in this Christmas' Styling since I was going more Organic with my Materials. I laundered them {thats apparently all the work I was up to in this Project... LOL} and then just scattered them beneath the tree... and the ones that were damaged I plan to make Christmas Stockings out of.
