The pattern looks easy and fun to make I will start on it soon for Christmas

I really need to make a Christmas tree shirt. My husband drop a log from the wood stove and burnt our tree shirt.

Love the treeskirt with the fuzzy yarn.

Red heart, or anything the seems to work,

I love to use any type of yarn. I like to look for different projects with different textures.

Cotton and Nylon yarn is what I usually use in crochet.
