Simple Tree Skirt

What you need:
• Felt, 60 square inches (about 2 yards)
• 2 bulldog clips
• String
• Tailor’s chalk
• Small plate
• Scissors

What you do:
1. Fold the felt in half to create a triangle. Fold the triangle in half to create another smaller triangle.
2. Use the bulldog clip to attach one end of a long string to the folded corner of the fabric. Use the other bulldog clip to secure the other end of the string to a piece of tailor’s chalk. Holding the string taut, swing your “compass” from edge to edge in a quarter-circle, drawing an arc with the chalk.
3. With the fabric still folded and using the small plate as a guide, trace an arc onto the folded, 90-degree corner of the felt. Leave it folded, and use scissors to cut along the trace marks.
4. Unfold the felt halfway, and cut a slit along one of the folds from the edge of the circle cutout in the middle to the edge of the felt.
