Sue Bargello Tree Skirt requirements

Christmas Tree Skirt

 

Fabric requirements

 

2 fat quarters (or 0.5 metre) of 9 different fabrics.  To create the swirling effect I used 3 greens, 3 reds and 3 creams. 

 

1.5m backing fabric

 

1.5m wadding

 

0.5 m binding fabric.  The binding is cut on the bias as it will be going around curves and so it is much easier to cut it out of one piece of fabric rather than joining lots of leftover pieces as we sometimes do.

 

Equipment

 

A 10 degree wedge ruler is required to cut the wedges.  I will have one during the class for you to use but you may want to buy one for yourself.

Rotary cutter and ruler

Neutral thread (or to co-ordinate with your fabrics)

Basic sewing kit (thread snips, unpicker, pins, etc)

Sewing machine with all bits and pieces
