Christmas Tree Tutorial

I recently went to the local markets and took along some little Xmas trees, I've received a lot of interest from them, and seeing as they are quite quick to make up thought I'd share a little tutorial for those who'd like to use up some fabric scraps and make their own little forest.

Supplies - cotton fabric of your choice, polyester toy stuffing, ribbons and flowers, wooden cotton reel, general sewing supplies

Here is the pattern...

Fold your chosen fabric with right sides together
Trace around the Xmas tree pattern with a pencil, marking the open section

 Sew on the line from a- b
Cut around the tree leaving a seam allowance

 Turn through and stuff

 Run a running stitch around the open section, insert the wooden cotton reel, and pull the threads to close around the reel.

Embellish your tree with ribbons, flowers, bells or whatever you choose.

Merry Xmas !

I hope the instructions are clear for you all, please don't hesitate to contact me in regards to any more information you may need or want.
