Christmas Tree Skirt Sewing Pattern-
You should have 12 sections that all look similar to the picture below.
Next, Trim around so the backing is the same size. I was a little generous when I trimmed as you can see above, but in reality you want them about the same size.
use two ribbons or make two strips for the ties (to keep the skirt around the tree) Just create a narrow rectangle about 10″ long and sew right sides together, close one short end and turn right side out.
Place the front and back together with right sides touching. Tuck the ties inside the skirt before you sew it together. They will then be on the outside when its turned. The black below represents my ties tucked in between the layers of fabric.
Clip the points, corners and the curve around the center before you turn.
Sew the opening closed. Press all the seams.
I decided to top stitch around the whole thing, and down the lines where each of the twelve sections are connected. This is optional..
