When I made the Nativity Auction Tree Skirt last November, I had an extra Nativity scene sitting around. I couldn't very well toss the work of Kindergartners that worked super hard on it, so I came up with the idea to make a "mini" for the teacher. And the room mom and I must have been on the same page, because she asked me if I minded making one for her as an end of the year teacher gift.
This time, since I knew it wasn't going to be "used" like a tree skirt, I appliqued the figures right on the background without the black felt edge.
I meant for it to be a "mini" but it was hard not to crowd all the figures. I definitely eliminated the "town" a few less palm trees to make room!
I used all the same fabrics, including backing and binding. Made a sleeve at the upper back that blended in with the backing in case the teacher decided to use it as a table runner or whatever she desired.
