I neglected to mention in the video that the pattern includes a coloring page.  Use it to help you plan your lone star.





I chose a traditional color scheme with some black and white thrown in for my tree skirt.  All the fabrics I have are half yard cuts so I can move them around and see what order I like best.  At this point my tree skirt will feature the prints you see above, with the red mistletoe print as background and the others for the star.

I hope you’re having a great time choosing your fabrics.  We’ve got one more week before we cut and sew.  Tag your posts with #hopefulhomemaker and #lonestartreeskirt on social media so we can all follow along.

I created a

Happy Sewing!
