Making a Christmas Tree Skirt from Old Clothing?

My father-in-law passed away and he had a bunch of overalls and red bandanas. Do you have any ideas for using overalls and the bandanas to make a Christmas tree skirt?

Check out this video. I think you could cut out his items into these shapes and sew them together nicely:

What a wonderful way to commemorate him. Good luck on your project.

As long as you piece the fabric into a circular shape, you will be fine. Here is a tutorial.

Just off the top of my head, I'm thinking a full skirt for a pattern and lay it open and place one piece of clothing to cover over an area and snip with scissors to match the skirt allowing enough to sew another piece of measured clothing to it. Face down over the other face up and pin in place and trim with scissors and use glue gun or sew together raw edges.


Open all the way and add another piece of clothing face down to the face up cut clothing. Continue until enough clothing is used to create the same measurements as the full skirt. Add some trim work to raw edges with glue gun or hem the edge and decorate. Leave last piece of cut raw edge fabric open, so it's easily removed from around the tree base. Just add sticky back velcro to close it up.
