I made a gator tree skirt for the gator tree. I've only had the fringe sitting in the sewing box for a year, so I thought it was about time to get it done. The fabric was $10/yd. at Walmart.
I bought the fringe at a thrift store last year with the intention of making this tree skirt. I have leftover fringe and the remaining half yard of fabric still. I'll make another tree skirt because I made the center hole way too big. It's nothing a little fake snow can't cover up, but I might as well make another one because I have the fabric and it only took me an hour.
Given that I don't know how to sew, I think it turned out pretty good. The fabric is pretty forgiving because it's thick and fleece-like. I wish I had orange thread. The blue worked just fine though.
