You will need four coordinating cotton fabrics 45” wide as follows:
- a. Color #1 – 1 yard (this is the color at the top of the tree skirt just above the ruffle at the bottom of the tree skirt; it is your more dominate color that is used for bringing out the smaller colors in your main color #4 below).
- b. Color #2 – 5/8 yard (this is your least dominate color smallest block second from the top and second from the bottom edge of the tree skirt).
- c. Color #3 – ¾ yard (this is your second most dominate color and is the color that sits on top and bottom of the main color in the center block).
- d. Color #4 – 1 1/3 yard (this is your main/dominate color in the center of the tree skirt & the ruffle).
4 Cones of Serger cone thread to match or blend with the fabric selection.
1 Cone of Wooly Nylon for the rolled edge (if you want some sparkle you will also need a metallic embroidery thread to mix in for the shine) on the rolled edge on the ruffle.
6” x 24” ruler for the initial cuts – length of fabric.
10 Degree Wedge Ruler (I will have some for sale $19.00 and will also have a couple for use in class)
Gathering foot for serger (if you have one for your regular sewing machine you can finish on that machine - rather than done on the serger but that foot is at times a bit narrow for the areas where the wedges come through. Also I have done this using the pleater foot attachment for my sewing machine).
Pre class preparation
Have all your fabric pressed well (press not ironed, recommend using Mary Ellen’s Best Press) doesn’t need to be stiff, just enough to aid in cutting your strips straight.
