posted about last year) was the perfect DIY for an impatient, non-sewer. The wee little Christmas tree on the buffet in my dining room needed a skirt. I made the entire thing in just a few hours, it wasn't too much work because it was so small.
1 sheet of cardstock
white felt (I used less than half a yard)
I made a kind of protractor/compass deal from a pen tied to string, and that's what I used to make my circle. Drawn on the back side, of course. Then I cut a radial slit (I didn't mess with making the buttons and loops from the original because sewing kind of blows my mind).
I hand-traced the leaf design onto cardstock. I did just one half, then folded the paper over before I cut so both sides would match. Then I held that against the felt and started cutting. You can definitely do two layers at a time.
I did an outer layer of five-petal flowers, and an inner layer of four-petal flowers. I first sewed the petals together, then sewed the bunch to the skirt.
