Woohoo! We are rolling into another day of our 2019 Holiday Freebies! Get ready to make a million of these cuties…they’re really fun to make and are fabulous scrap busters. Our testers just kept making more and more for their own homes, teacher gifts, and to fill their craft booths this holiday season.
Let’s get to making some happy little trees!
Grab your “FESTIVE FABRIC TREES” pattern pieces here!
Fabric Requirements (based upon 44″ quilting cottons):
- 1/3 Yard Fabric
- Fiber Fill, affiliate link
Prep your pieces. You will need four total tree pieces for one tree.
Place two of the pieces, right sides together.
Sew around outer edge. Only sew an inch or two along the bottom curve, on both sides, to leave space for turning and adding the fiber fill.
Clip as close as you can to the seam allowance without going through it, and trim points. This will allow for sharper points.
Turn right sides out and press, making sure to press under the seam allowance. **Repeat with remaining pieces.
Press one of the sets in half, to create your guide line for sewing in the next step.
Align both sets on top of each other, keeping the one that you pressed on top.
Sew a line straight down the middle of all layers.
Fill all four openings with poly fill.
Hand stitch the openings shut on the bottom, using your favorite stitch.
You’re finished! Sit back, enjoy your adorable new tree….and then go make a hundred more! Here are a couple of cute ones from our testers!
As always, we love when you share what you’ve made with us. Head over to the Patterns for Pirates Facebook group and show off the fabulous Festive Fabric Trees that you’ve managed to make from our freebie pattern! Happy Holidays, friends!
Adorable! Thank you!
Will this work okay if I scale it down to half size? My family just started a tradition of a “white elephant gift” where you have to “make it, bake it, or grow it” and I think an assortment of mini trees would be perfect for next year.
If you’re a member of our Facebook group you can search the group… there were many sewists who enlarged it and shrunk it 🙂 http://www.facebook.com/groups/patternsforpiratesgroup
