i bought 1 1/8 yard of fabric last week to recover my living room pillows. after deciding i bought a safe and somewhat boring fabric i thought i'd make it into a tree skirt. i have clear, white and silver ornaments on my tree so the creamy, white damask fabric i chose will be perfect.
first i taped the fabric right side down on my kitchen table. after marking the center i took a piece of string tied to a pen and drew a line all the way around.
i reused this home-made princess Leia dress, a white sheet, from halloween to give it a little more weight. worked perfect. here it is pinned all the way around.
merry christmas and thanks for looking.
