Patti Edmon Altered Attic: Skirts for Salvation

Skirts for Salvation

Back in August, we got a call asking if Jim and I would create Christmas tree skirts to benefit our local Salvation Army. How could I say no? The days were long and hot and the studio was the coolest place to be.
My immediate thought was to create snow people with funky hats... This endeavor was a big shift from the wedding project and I didn't even start until 2 days before the skirts were to be delivered. Fortunately, my darling husband, Jim, had finished his prancing reindeer skirt in plenty of time to help with the background and mounds of snow.
Making the hats was my favorite part. Even in a time crunch I never knew there were so many fashion variations! I didn't even use half my ideas, which made cleaning up a royal mess.

If you're so inclined, visit Bluegrass Home Interiors, view all 32 skirts and cast a vote. Or two. It's for a great cause!

Real snow people wear hats!



And Jim's fabulous contribution - reindeer prancing for charity.



A few of my favorite hats...

The prancing reindeer are too cute, and I'm totally in love with all the hats- can you make them in human-being size?

Both skirts - adorable. As I looked at the bluegrass site with all of the skirts both of yours caught my attention immediately. So cheerful, so whimsical - great ideas.
