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.
