I am not great at sewing. I am sure that if I applied myself and really concentrated, I would get better, but I just don't have a lot of time for that.
Last few years I have been using some fabric wrapped loosely around the bottom of my tree. So I did some research and realized making a tree skirt isn't so hard and so I decided to give it a shot.
If you are capable of sewing well, then choose whatever fabric you please. If you are like me I recommend fleece or burlap, and to expect a shabby chic look!
I chose burlap. Here we go!
1. Spread fabric out on the floor and find the spot you would like for your middle, I measured the width and divided it by half and used that as my middle.
2. Tie a marker to a string and tape the other end to your center spot.
3. Draw a circle with your marker
5. I decided to add a ruffle using burlap ribbon. Making ruffles with burlap is sooo easy. At the edge of your strip you can just pull a string of the burlap the runs along the top and it gathers right away.
6. I did run a loose stitch through the ruffle to sew it to the skirt. It was nice and sloppy because I plan on covering it up. It could look cool to use red embroidery floss to run a thick craft stitch along the top.
7. This will be in part 2 of the tutorial which I will post in a couple of weeks. I plan on bordering the entire ruffle with these rosettes made from Muslin. I will show a tutorial for the rosettes this week!
I hope this was informative and inspires you to make one for yourself!!
