I finally made a Christmas tree skirt! I’ve been using this cheap hand-me-down since forever and it’s hideous so I was so excited to put that into the Freecycle pile and make a new skirt with the fabric I’d found at the local fabric yard sale that happens a couple times a year. I also used this same fabric to make some fabric Christmas gift bags– my FAVORITE thing to have around for easy wrapping!
This was pretty easy to sew.
To make this, I used my old tree skirt as a pattern. I placed the old skirt on my fabric and cut around it, leaving a bit of a seam allowance. Once I did that, I folded the new fabric in half and then in half again. And I evened it all up so that the fabric was a perfect circle (mostly because my cutting wasn’t super awesome, kids were laying on fabric while I was trying to cut).
Then I cut my bottom fabric out. This is the same size as the top piece, of course.
