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

I can't wait to see pics, because I really can't picture how the colours will look.  Will you be able to see one colour on the top, and another one peeking out where you sew back those flaps?  I think the drawing looks gorgeous!

one colour is the backing and the other colour is the top and when it folds you see the backing colour. I will post picks of my first unit when I get home today.

Lightbulb moment...thanks for the explanation.  I *should* have been able to figure that one out LOL!

I tend not to describe things too well. I was reading my own instructions and couldn't figure it out either - i am such a dork!

Inna I would love to have the pdf of the stocking! Would mind telling where you got that cute lace that you put on?

My sister in law gave it to me for my wedding dress about 10 years ago. I had just enough left for the two stockings.
