Santas 'round the tree


Susi made this terrific tree skirt with the Santas in Embroidery Library's World Santas Pack. She embroidered the designs on white flannel using her Viking Designer I and added the lettering for each country with Viking's 3D embroidery software. We loved the result, and Susi was happy to share about how she put it all together.

"I precut the ten panels to accurately place each design. I layered each panel with batting and a plaid backing and quilted them using a meandering stitch. Then I bound the side edges of each panel leaving the top and bottom plain. I joined the ten panels by using an edge joining stitch. When all ten panels were assembled into the circle (leaving one edge open), I put the same binding on the top and bottom of the entire circle, leaving ends (approximately 10 inches long) which could then be tied at the
back of the tree."

Thank you, Susi, for sending us this inspiring idea! Santa will be compelled to leave wonderful treats for you under the tree as a show of appreciation for this beautiful tree skirt.
