I used a collection of Christmas-y fabrics that I have on hand. Unfortunately I don't know the names of any of them.
I made this hot pad to match too. I love doing embroidery and I think this tree is quite charming.
I've decided that I really like making hot pads, and with a few modifications I'd like to make more oven mitts. A quick and fun holiday gift for someone on your list this year. T minus 11 days and counting!
