Make a Tree Skirt out of a Quilt - Video!

Do you remember earlier this year when I blogged about my Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge fabric and how I said you could get an insanely early start on your holiday sewing? Did you start your holiday sewing yet? No? Yeah, me neither.

But now, you may have noticed that Christmas decorations are starting to pop up in stores. So now, it's game on, full on Christmas prep! Too much? Ok, we'll ease down the road with a simple tree skirt project that utilizes a forgotten WIP or reuses an old quilt!

Below is a video with Rob Appell, of Man Sewing, using my Mandala Quilt pattern to make an easy, striking tree skirt. WARNING: Due to the graphic use of scissors on a quilt, I feel I should warn the faint of heart. Don't worry, no quilts were harmed...much, and they look fabulous.

 

For this tutorial you will need to finish the edge of the tree skirt with a bias binding. I did a quick tip tutorial with Rob about bias binding as well, so be sure to take a look at that video for tricks on easy bias binding.

Get ready to throw another log on the fire, sip peppermint hot chocolate, and listen to some holiday tunes!

Merry Sewing!
