Ruffled Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt...

 Hi, Ladies!
Today, I wanted to "share" ORP's version of
a "Ruffled" Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt.
First off, I would like to say that I got this idea
from a website called..."Uncommon Designs".
 Trish & Bonnie's ruffled burlap Christmas tree
skirt is a "no sew" project.
So, if you don't sew you may want to hop on over
to their website for their "no sew" tutorial.

OK, let's get started!
Supplies Needed...
(1) 60" Round Burlap Tablecloth ($15.00 at Premier Burlap
2 Yards Homespun Christmas Fabric
8 yds of Trim (I used a burlap ric-rac)

Start by folding your round tablecloth in half.
Using an 8 to 10" plate or lid, draw a "half" circle
on the center fold of your tablecloth, as shown in the photo below.
Now, draw a straight line, starting a the "A" to the edge of your tablecloth,
also shown in the photo below.
Cut the circle & straight line out.
The circle will be what fits around the base of your Christmas tree
& the line will be the opening of your Christmas tree skirt.
The photo below shows you what your Christmas tree skirt
will look like once it's laid out.

At this point you can bind the circle and edges of the opening
or you can skip the binding part.
For the binding I used 2 1/2" strips of the same
homespun Christmas fabric that I used for the ruffle.

Time to do some figuring...
Measure the circumference of your tablecloth
and double that number.
My 60" tablecloth was 180" in circumference.
I like lots of ruffles, so I "doubled" that number...360".
360" of fabric is what I will need to make my "ruffled" Christmas tree skirt.
If you don't like a lot of ruffles then you will need to lower that number
to like maybe 1 1/2 times the circumference of the tablecloth or 270 inches
or somewhere in between 270 & 360 inches.
Tear strips of the homespun Christmas fabric 6" wide.
You can use burlap if you prefer but you can't tear burlap, it
will need to be cut.
 Sew these strips together until you have reached the desired number of inches.
For me it was 360".
About an inch from the edge of the fabric run a gathering stitch.
I like to run two rows of gathering stitches just in case one breaks.
 Gather these ruffles until they fit the circumference of your tablecloth.
At this point you can either sew your ruffle to the tablecloth
or you can glue your ruffle to the tablecloth.

 I hid my gathering stitches by gluing some burlap
ric-rac trim on my ruffle.
I used this same trim to make ties for my Christmas tree skirt.
Walla...wasn't that "fun"?
I hope that your ruffled Christmas tree skirt will be a
"keepsake" for many Christmas's to come!

PS:  I will post a picture of my new "ruffled" Christmas tree
skirt all laid out under our tree, once I get our Christmas tree up
in a couple of weeks!

Raggedy "Hair" Tutorial from Old Road Primitives...

Raggedy “Hair” Tutorial from ORP! To get started we will start with Picture #1-Wrap a strand of yarn around your fingers several times to form loops as shown in picture #1. Picture #2-Starting hand stitching these loops at the top/center of the raggedy’s head. I hand stitch the loops right down the seam line of the head. Picture #3-When the hair on one side is finished, continue stitching the loops down the other side of the head. I usually try to not go any further down the head then the temples with the hair. Picture #4-This is the “wild” shot. The top is now finished. One more step to go. Picture #5-Start stitching the loops across the back of the raggedy’s head in a straight line. When you are all finished you can go back and clip the top of each loop or you can leave your raggedy’s hair “loopy”. I like to clip each loop but leave a few “loops” in the bang area. I especially like to leaves some “loops” on my girl raggedies.

Happily linking to...

"Easy" Striped Raggedy Leg Tutorial from ORP...

“Easy” Striped Raggedy Leg Tutorial from Old Road Primitives. This is the "easy" way to paint "perfect" little stripes on your raggedy's leg. Picture #1-Paint stripes evenly on fabric. (I used scotch tape spaced evenly across the fabric.) Dry stripes. A blow dryer speeds up this process. Remove tape from fabric. Picture #2-Fold the fabric in half with stripes on the inside (RSI-Right Sides In). Please note…be sure to line the stripes up evenly. Picture #3-Trace the leg/shoe pattern piece to the fabric. Picture #4-Sew and trim leg/shoe piece. Picture #5-Turn the leg/shoe piece (RSO-Right Sides Out). Stuff the leg/shoe to the stuff line. Walla…now wasn’t that easy? Go ahead and paint the shoe. Let it dry. Stain, dry and sand the leg/shoe piece one last time. ORP's Raggedy Annie & Andie pattern can be purchased at the following link...
