How To Make 3D Christmas Trees
These lovely little 3D Christmas trees will look great as decorations this Christmas, and they will also make great gifts. The added bonus of these is that they won’t shed any needles around the house for you to find months later!
What you will need:
Button for base
The Craft Cotton Company's Stag fat quarter set
First, cut out you template and fabric:
On the paper, draw out a Christmas tree shape for whichever size you want. To make it easier, fold a piece of paper in half, and draw half the Christmas tree on one side, cut, open the paper out and there's your tree template.
Using the paper template cut out 6 pieces of fabric.
Next, sew the pieces together:
Take two of the cut out fabric pieces and place them right sides together. Repeat for the remaining 4 pieces.
Now take one of these fabric pairs and sew around the edge of the tree, leaving the bottom edge un-sewn. Repeat for the other 2 pairs.
Trim and stack fabrics together:
Trim the tree ends slightly and make two small snips at each of the inward tree points to help with laying flat after turning.
Turn the trees the right way around and press.
Now stack the 3 pairs of fabric trees on top of each other, and sew a straight line from the top down to 1 cm from the bottom of the trees.
Finally, add stuffing and decoration:
Put stuffing into each of the 6 sections.
Fold the raw edges in by 0.5 cm and slip stitch to close.
Finally, sew a button onto the base.
