    christmas tree skirt ideas?

    Hello.. I bought that 10 degree wedge ruler to make a christmas tree skirt. But when I did that I hated it. I actually did not finish because of how awful it looked.. probably the wrong fabrics.

    So I found 3 fabrics that I do like and I wanted to make a tree skirt with them. My problem is that the "main" fabric (my fabric that I wanted to be the focal point) I could only get 1.5 yards. which is not enough for the pattern that I wanted to try.

    So that pattern will go tot he back burner for another time.

    Do any of you guys have easy tree skirt patterns for 3 fabrics? I have 1.5 yard of my favorite fabric, then 1 yard of fabric #2 and fabric #3 I was planning on using for the backing so I have plenty of that (4.5 yards)

    Any suggestions?

    How about a carpenter star. You should have enough for that

    the ones I;ve done are all appliqued. Maybe try that. I did one with cute sonowmen on a blue background ( My dh is Jewish), I did one with bears, trees and stars, and another with holly leaves and yo yos as the berries with red crystals in the centers. good luck. show us your fabrics.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I usually go looking at Google photos for ideas:

    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort
