I rushed right home with unrelated purchases in hand and set out to make this.
Guess what I used to make it? A curtain! Yes a curtain. I found this one curtain panel at Ross in the clearance section for $2.00 and at the time I didn't know what I would do with it, but I liked the pattern and the weight of the fabric and I felt at worst I would make some pillows out of it. I just couldn't pass up such a large piece of fabric at $2.00!
So here's what I did. First I laid out the fabric and cut out a circle using my little snow blanket tree skirt.
I cut around the pattern of the little snow blanket tree skirt. Then I cut out a ruffle piece that was twice the circumference of the snow skirt.
I sewed the ruffle piece around the edge and then I hemmed everything. This took only about 20 minutes and cost less than $2.00 because I still have a ton of curtain fabric left over for another project.
I like the simplicity of it.
I think it suits my little tree.
