in between naps & feedings & doctors these past few weeks i've squeezed in little bits of time to work on a few projects.
we've been in need of a little tree skirt redo.
& theres been a lot of tutorials for no-sew ones floating around, so i did the same thing - folded over pleats to make lots of ruffles, only i ended up sewing mine after all. it just felt more secure. hot glue doesn't love sticking for me that well. & i actually think it ended up saving me a good bit of time - so if you HAVE a sewing machine - i like how it turned out quite well :)
you will need:
4-5 yards of fabric
a rotary cutter & board
a sewing machine & thread
an existing tree skirt
-wash & dry fabric & cut into strips. i did 4 inch strips & it took me about 5 hours to make this. i think if you did 5 inch strips, it would speed things up a bit, though…
-fold over fabric & pin onto your tree skirt so you are making ruffles - you'll want to start on the outside & work your way to the middle, so your last row will be the smallest. after you finish each row, sew & repeat - covering 1/2 to 1 inch of the previous row each time.
& a few christmas movies later, you're done!
its a bit late in the season to be making tree skirts, so sorry for my tardiness. let me know if you try it!
