Monogrammed Burlap {Tree Skirt}

 I have wanted this burlap skirt completed for the longest time.

Our family room tree has transitioned over the years into what I call a rustic "country" look.

 But I have to tell you my secret.

It isn't a typical tree skirt. It's actually a rectangle!

I bought a large burlap tablecloth for a party and never used it.  I thought about cutting it into a tree skirt, but realized when I hustled it under the tree, that I liked it with the fluffy layers.  I started by adding the monogram to the front center.

I added the red and white striped binding around the two short sides and one long side. 

 When I got to the back long side, I just ended the binding by folding the end in, stitching it closed.

I am soooo happy with it!

My only regret?  That I make sure that a seam ended right on the center front.  
Oh well...can't win them all!!!!
