Oh Christmas Tree Gifty Project

When I first saw the Oh Christmas Tree pattern by Nancy Rink, it was love at first sight.  So I begged Nancy if we could use her pattern as a download pattern for Gifty this year.  Her directions were so easy to follow and the project went together so quickly, depending on what applique method you use.  It only took me a weekend (with lots of other engagements) to finish this project up.  I used fusible applique, but hand embroidered the button stitch around the tree.

I love how it turned in the Holiday Elegance fabrics.  The metallic fabrics really add a beautiful touch to this project, with no other ornamentation needed with this fabric.  I split the light green fabric requirement between the Chic Stripe Apple for the tree applique (1/4 yard) and the Golden Treasures Apple/Metallic for the border and binding (1/2 yard).

I would recommend using a little spray starch for the thin strips and watch which way you press your seams so you can get those little points to work right. Hope you have as much fun with this project as I did.
