Sewing: Christmas Tree Skirt

Tree Skirt: 3ten.ca

This is a tutorial to make a Christmas tree skirt in about 10 minutes. It’s quick, easy and useful year after year. Let’s get sewing.

What You Need

  • fabric that measures 50 x 50 (or 45 x 45)
  • matching thread
  • serger
  • scissors

First – find a fabric you like and ensure it’s pre washed. Next, fold it in half one way and then fold it in half the other way. Now you’ll have a square that measures 25×25.

Cut the corner (the one with all the open edges) in a rounded shape. I want my tree skirt to be a bit boxy and square, not so rounded. If you want a full circle, cut from corner to corner.

Now, cut out a 2.5 inch square on the opposite corner. Open the tree skirt up. Cut a straight line from one side to the edge of the square.

Lastly, serge using your rolled hem stitch, all around the tree skirt.
