I made a few Christmas tree skirts this year. First I started with one I already have and folded it in half and laid it onto my folded fabric, lining up the folded side of the skirt with the fold of the fabric. Cut around the half circle and around the little hole part. Cut through one of the folds and open up the fabric. You will have a basic skirt. I doubled the thickness of each of these to add some stability and to make them a nice reversible option. The rag-quilted flannel one has all exposed seems that fray when they are clipped and tumbled in the dryer a few times.
