--you know me and sheets, so of course I used a sheet (garage sale, $1) instead of a drop cloth
--the directions never gave a size - I went out 30 inches from the center - I think that was too big. Oh well.
--instead of cutting a 7 inch strip and folding in half, I cut a 3 1/2 inch strip and hemmed the edge - I'm thrifty with my use of fabric and always try to eek out as much as I can
--since my skirt was so big, I ended up using 6-7 strips instead of 5
--I gathered the ruffle on my serger using that fabulous gathering foot (I gush about it HERE).
And we just set our tree up, and it's dark, so no good picture of the Tree Skirt in action - just imagine how fabulous it is!!
You can do this!! It was quick and easy - beginner sewers, go for it!
