Star Burst Tree Skirt - A Free Pattern
I made this skirt 3 years ago and it is by far, my favorite pattern. I love it because it is so interesting, so flexible, and no matter what fabrics you use - Christmas or otherwise, it looks festive.
I got this pattern from Ev Quilts and Co. who explains it much better than I ever could, so here is in the link.
But before you head off - her pattern really only mentions 1 size. I liked this because I could not find a SMALL size to fit my skinny Christmas Tree. So instead of using a 25" x 60" batting piece. I used a 16" x 60" piece. It worked the exact same way and gave me an adorable smaller skirt. It is not an exact science, the rule of thumb is to have a skirt the same size as the bottom of your tree. I figure as long as I am a little close, I am good.
I will say, you cannot use fat quarters on this one - it takes the long strips to fully extend over the batting - you cannot be short - not even a little bit. Ask me how I know! LOL
This is definitely confident beginner friendly and a weekend project. I actually did mine in a few hours, but I was familiar with the process.
The link for the template is not available since this is an older blog post, but I used the Creative Grids 15 Degree Ruler. It made this tree skirt a breeze.
If you would like to see a tutorial of this tree skirt - let me know - if there is enough interest, we will make one some Saturday morning.
And if you DO decide to make one, in addition to tagging Ev and Co., tag us too! We would love to see yours!
