Speedy Christmas Tree Skirt Tutorial


Head on over to the Moda Bakeshop to see my newest tutorial!

To clear up some confusion (my bad!) about cutting the trees at 45 degrees, please see this clarification post

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

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

    2. 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.

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

  3. 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

    1. 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........
