Yes, ruffled tree skirts are everywhere this year. But, it’s because they are so amazingly cute! I saw this one on HGTV.com and had to make it. The only big problem was everything had a raw edge. I could just imagine the shredded mess it would be after two or three years of use. So, I used my 1/8 inch hemming foot and hemmed 4 yards of 3 inch strips. It took hours. But, it was totally worth it. I zigzagged all the edges of the canvas fabric that the strips are sewn on AND when it was all finished, used a bottle of NO FRAY on all the ribbon and zigzagged edges. (Just to be on the safe side!) I also changed the size of the 2 inch strips to 3 inches. I really like how it turned out. It does look a bit different from the original, but I’m pretty sure it’ll last for years to come.
Love, love, love it.
