I was supposed to be working but.... I was thinking of Christmas.
Here is a tree skirt pattern my brain thought up. I made it to fit a 11x17 piece of paper. If you want the pdf pm me.
You need to cut out 12 of each of two (or more) colours for a total of 24 pieces. You sew two of these wrong sides together leaving a gap in your stitching for turning. Turn piece right side out and sew gap closed. Do this to all pieces to total 12 "units". You need to have mirrored units - I found this out the hard way - you need six of one and six mirrored ones. Press well. Take two "units" and place them same colours together matching edges and sew along one of the dashed lines on pattern. Do this to all units. You should have 6 units now. Take two of those units and place them same colours together matching edges and sew along the other dashed line on pattern. Leave one unit unjoined so that you can place this around a tree. Fold back "petals" and press really well. Tack sew the tips of the "petals" down.
Ta Da!!! Tree Skirt!
I haven't tried the pattern yet because I am still at work. I will post mine when finished.
This is my first two "units" sewn together to make a bigger unit.
and a bonus picture of the stockings I am making this year. Which I also have a pdf of if anyone is interested.
Here is the stocking pattern - and again - pm me if you want the pdf version
