Christmas tree skirt
Mom wanted a new tree skirt with between a 6ft to 8ft diameter. She asked for it to be either blue or red velvet. I had both on hand.
Since I had more blue velvet than red, the tree skirt ended up being blue. Mom said she wanted a plain tree skirt but I can't do plain. Being a Navy family, I knew at least Dad would appreciate some gold trim on the blue velvet. I happened to have a ton of gold trim due to a very large bin of trim I bought at an SCA event a few weeks ago for $15. So, I just used that around the outer edge.
The tree skirt is very simple. I used the same method to make it as I do for circle skirts. It took all of 30 minutes to put together. Mom and Dad love it.
