This is a project that I have wanted to do for a while now. I have a bunch of old felt pennants of various sizes. I pulled together enough of a similar size to make this Christmas Tree skirt. I used a buttonhole embroidery stitch to link the pennants together. I loved the bright colors and love the variety of interesting places depicted by the pennants. The only question is....what am I going to put on the tree to go with this?
