http://strikesmyfancy-2013.blogspot.com/2013/12/picture-tutorial-repurposed-christmas.html                                                                  This is a Picture Tutorial for a DIY Repurposed Christmas Tree Skirt made out of a set of festive placemats.

Step 1:

Here's a list of supplies you will need for this project:
6 quilted placemats
1/2" Ribbon
Bias Binding
The placemats were already in the shape of a octagon with 2 long sides and 2 short sides in addition to the 4 diagonal edges. These are standard sized placemats that are double faced and have nicely finished edges around the perimeter of the placemats with a serger stitch.

What a great idea! Looks lovely under the tree.
Lovely! I just love the shape you did! Very unique!
Thanks Penolopy! That was an added Bonus!!
