Christmas Tree Cross Cover
To hide the unsightly cross of the tree in childhood, we used cotton wool. Then they wrapped it with a piece of cloth and finally, I had the opportunity to sew a real skirt on the Christmas tree. Or rather, a cloak on the base of the Christmas tree. I sewed my skirt from caps (for lack of non-flowing fabric). The beauty of this tailoring is that the edge of the fabric does not pour, the snow-white edging has already been sewn and it remains only to add decor elements. As a decor, I chose a Christmas plant with bright red flowers - poinsettia. If you are too lazy to sew flowers, you can use pompons from caps or purchased snowflakes. 1. I needed the cape:
- Caps - 5 pcs.
- Threads of red and white.
- Centimeter or ruler.
2. For the most cape need only 4 cap.We start with them - we cut off the corners with pom-poms. If you fasten the skirt, right around the trunk of the tree, you only need to cut off the very tip of the cap - 1 cm. If you have a bucket or stand, then measure its diameter, in order to avoid too wide or a small cape cutout. "style =" max->"
3. Unzip one side seam. 4. We connect among themselves 4 parts of a cape. Remember to leave one seam open. 5. From the white edging, the fifth in a row cap, you need to make blanks for flowers. For each poinsettia you need 3 blanks. The total number of flowers on the cape - 7 pieces. Total 21 parts turn out. The length of white edging is 60 cm. By simple mathematical calculations, we obtain the width of each petal - 2.8 cm. 6. From the rectangles we cut out pointed double-sided petals. Conveniently cut several pieces at once.

7. Each petal must be folded as shown in the photo. 8. Fold the workpiece in the middle and stitch the needle. 9. Add the second part in the form of a petal. 10. And the last third harvest in place. 11. To complete the work, return the needle to the place where we began to sew the flower. Tighten and fasten, but do not tear the thread!
12. Immediately sew a flower on a cape under the Christmas tree. 13. Here the flower of poinsettia has taken its place. 14. It remains to make the rest of the flowers and fasten them on a cape to the cross of the Christmas tree. 15. Cut out narrow strips from the red fabric of the fifth cap and sew on both sides of the open seam.We get the strings for fixing the skirt on the basis of the Christmas tree. 16. Well, the cape with white flowers took its place. 17. It seemed to me that the flowers were not enough, and I added another red poinsettia over the white border of the skirt. In my opinion, it turned out too much, but I did not fix it anymore. The New Year is coming, and this year, this colorful skirt with poinsettia flowers will be hiding the Christmas tree cross.
