What Type of Material Should I Use?
For this tree skirt to be "no sew", it is important to use a material that has a shag to it. This means the material needs to have long strands of material to cover the raw edges. Faux fur material with a long shag will hide the raw edges nicely and give you the rustic look as seen above.
*PRO TIP: When cutting the faux fur, it works best to cut with the wrong side of the fabric facing up. Then, carefully cut along the fabric marker line with scissors, cutting through the backing fabric only, not the fur. This will help you avoid unnatural cuts across the long, flowing fur.
Step One: Fold Fabric
Fold the fabric in half with the wrong side facing outward by bringing the left and right sides together. Next, fold the fabric in half again by bringing the bottom of the fabric upward to meet the top
Make sure the fabric matches up evenly at all corners.
Step Two: Draw Outer Circle
Tie the string to the pin and stick the pin through the corner of the fabric that will be the middle.
With tension, stretch your string out to the end of your fabric and wrap it around the fabric marker. (You can cut off the excess string now) Draw your 1/4 of a circle. This will end up being your guide for cutting the fabric.
Step Three: Draw Center Circle
With your "circle object" (I used a clock I had laying around), trace 1/4 of the object onto the center fold of the fabric.
Step Four: Cut Your Outer Circle
Cut your big circle on layer at a time. (TIP: Cut the faux fur carefully so you don't cut the long pieces of fur off. Angle your scissors upwards towards the backing so that you are only cutting the backing fabric, and not the fur).
Step Five: Cut Center Circle
Cut the center the same way, one layer at a time to get the best result.
Unfold the fabric once, and cut your opening from the outside to the center. (TIP: Cut the slit on the side where the fur is facing towards the center of the tree skirt.)
