Christmas in July: A Tree Skirt for Me

I have never had a nice tree skirt, we just never had the need or the money to get a really nice one.  I had one from the dollar store that we had used for a few years, the kids finally destroyed it.  It also never stayed in place.
I remembered having a pretty fabric in my stash.  All I had to get was some bias tape for the edging.

I measured and found the center mark.

I then drew a curve on one of the quarters.

Folded it back up and cut it.

This is an up close of the fabric

and another one.


I measured for the center circle.

and cut it too.

I cut the slit in it and was ready to start pinning.

All of the bias tape is pinned.

Here is the finished product, with ties and all.  I really like how it turned out, and can't wait to put it under my tree.
