Last year I just wrapped some burlap fabric around the bottom of my kitchen tree. This year I decided to make a quick new-sew skirt. I have some pictures of my project below, but thought I would use this opportunity to throw in some pictures of my kitchen :)
This year I just didn't have the drive to do anything fancy or elaborate. I tried to use what I had on hand when possible.
This was my latest find from TJ Maxx. I couldn't pass up this frame.
I folded my fabric in half, horizontally. I then found the center of the fold, and started marking my fabric at 22 inch intervals, in a circular pattern. There are better ways to do this I'm sure, but I just used pieces of painters tape and moved my yardstick around.
Since my fabric was a scene, I cut my slit on the side that will be upside down, for the back side of the tree. I just measured 22 inches from the edge to center for my cut.
Next you want to use some iron-on binding tape. One brand of this is called Stitch Witchery. I usually get mine at Hobby Lobby. That is also where I got the stick on Velcro sets.
Fold the edge of each slit cut over the bonding tape, and iron on according to the package directions. I just set my iron to the appropriate heat setting for the fabric I'm using.
After the edges, I repeated this all around circle edges.
Then, stick on your Velcro pieces, one half of the set on the top side of the fabric, and the other piece underneath. My package instructions stated to let them set for 24 hours to get the best adherence on the fabric. I used four "sets" to fasten my skirt.
Thanks for stopping by!
