Level: Advanced

Marie used the many decorative stitches and embroidery features of the Memory Craft 10000 to create her Heirloom Fantasy ensemble. Each ornament is different and created using a variety of heirloom techniques. This project can be created with the Memory Craft 9000 or 5700 as well. Marie recommends if you do not own a Janome embroidery machine that you can easily create your own Heirloom Fantasy using decorative stitches.

Fabric Preparation

  1. Fold the satin fabric in half and half again.
  2. Place a yardstick where the folds meet. Measure out 30". Make a small dot.
  3. Swivel the yardstick around keeping the end of the yardstick where you began, and make another mark.
  4. Continue until you have an arc shape on your fabric. Each dot should measure 30" from the corner.
  5. Join the dots and cut out on this line. You now have a 60" diameter circle.
  6. Cut a lining to match, either out of the satin or another fabric of choice.
    Note: Marie used pre-washed muslin. If the lining fabric is less than 60" wide it will have to be pieced.
  7. Measure 2" from the same corner to form a 2" circle. Cut out. This opening is to go around the tree.
  8. Open the folded fabric so you have a half circle.
  9. Measure from the corner to 3" at the bottom of the fold. Draw a line and cut on this line. This is your back opening.
    Note:If you were to just cut a slit from the opening at the top, down to the bottom, your tree skirt would lie flat on the floor. By cutting a wedge shape the skirt will "tent" a little, helping it to fall gracefully around the tree.
  10. Make a template from the large bell using the pattern piece provided above.
  11. Starting 10" on each side of the center front, draw the bell six times evenly around the skirt.
  12. Cut six 9" squares from the lace yardage.
  13. Spray starch and press each square.
  14. Spray the wrong side of each square with spray adhesive and place on top of the bells.
  15. Pin insertion lace around each bell, mitering at the corners.
