Flowery Christmas Tree Skirt



I have a very intricate tree skirt that I made over 20 years ago out of felt.  It has Santa and his sleigh, 8 reindeer and elves filling the sleigh with presents and its decorated with sequins.  Unfortunately, I'm going to have to retire it because over the years it's gotten dirty and I can't wash it because all the colors will run.  So this year I decided to make a new tree skirt.  This is a pretty easy pattern that shouldn't take too long to make.  Have fun!

Push the loose petals upwards and curl them with your fingers. Weave in all loose ends.
