This is the finished product...
which began as a Christmas tree skirt that I found on clearance at TJMaxx marked down from $19.99 to $2.00. I just couldn't leave it there. However, I had no desire to use it as a tree skirt.
So today I revamped it into a pillow cover by folding it over and cutting across the fold. Then I overlapped the back pieces where they were split to go around the tree and sewed around the edges making it large enough to encase a queen size bed pillow. The overlap in the back provides the opening for the pillow.
I zigzagged the top raw edges and left the extra fabric intact because the material sheds badly. The excess fabric just provides extra cushioning inside the pillow.
GO RED SOX !!!
