Based on the picture on the tutorial - the first one in the instructions showing the strip set cut into triangles - what is the length of the bottom edge of the tree? I'm just still not seeing how the strip set is cut using a 45 deg reference. Sorry.

Leah, I have tried to make this tree skirt. When I had it all together it was like I had 1/2 a tree to much it would not lay flat. I cut my trees so that they were 9 inch across the bottom and it was 10 inch tall. So what did I do wrong. My husband and I sat for over 3 hours to figure it out. Do you have a template that could be used? It is a very cute tree skirt but am disappointed that I could not get to work out. Thanks for help

You and Vicki both, so clearly I have a problem, don't I. I've made this tree skirt twice and haven't had any problems like this, so it's a little tricky for me to understand where exactly the problem lies. And another tricky thing...I do not have either of the tree skirts anymore (given away) so I don't have much to show you either. I'm gonna attempt this in a hasty little blog post using just pictures of my cutting mat...I really hope it works....ha........

I love this!! Now, I need to go finish mine :)

ReplyDeleteI'm confused. Where is the 45 deg angle? Or, instead, what is the length of the bottom of the green triangle tree?

ReplyDeleteI wish I could put a picture in my reply, but since I can't, I edited the above post. Does this help explain?

DeleteSorry.

About 9" across the bottom. About 10" from top point to center of the bottom. If that helps you.
