Pom Pom Christmas Tree Skirt

Here is a little project I made the other day. It was super quick to make and perfect for using up remnants or fat quarter bundles!

It's basically a simple Dresden quilt. Measure and cut the rectangle fabric pieces 30cmx10cm and then cut diagonally across 2cm from the corner.

No need to round off the wider edges yet, you can do that at the end. Stitch all the pieces together, alternating with different fabrics, joining the short ends with short ends with approx. 5mm seam allowance.

Trim all the edges with a rotary cutter or scissors so it's all nice and round ready for binding.

Iron the Dresden quilt, and sandwich a piece of Vilene/Viieseline H640 Thick iron on Volume Fleece in between another piece of Poppy red Kona. Overlock or zigzag the edges.

Stitch 2 pieces of double fold red red bias on the open edges.

Bind the bottom with more double folded red bias. Bind the centre leaving approximately 30cm extra on each side for tying.

Stitch decorative edge jumbo pompoms all around the bottom edge of the skirt.

A lot of our customers tell us they use pompoms to decorate their Christmas tree, so I thought I would give it a go this year. What a great idea! plus you can use the pompoms for another project at the end of the festive season ;)
