• Craft Cotton Co

Scrap and Patch Tree



Create a fabric Christmas tree with fabric scraps or fat quarters.

You will need

1 Set of Craft Cotton Co Christmas Metallic FQ’s

Calico or Heavy Weight backing fabric

Brown Felt

Stuffing

Buttons


Step 1 Draw a Tree Shape onto the Calico, as Small or Large as you wish.


Step 2 Cut out sections from the FQ’s and loosely lay them to fill the tree shape.


Step 3 Put the second piece up from the bottom into place and the bottom piece on top of it R/S together.

Sew along the bottom as in the picture.


Step 4 Repeat this process all the way up the tree.


Step 5 Sew along each join with a decorative stitch.


Step 6 Trim away the excess.



Step 7 Add some buttons (not too close to the edge where you will be sewing the backing on) Cut another piece of calico the same shape for the backing.


Step 8 Put the backing on top of the r/s of the fabric, pin or clip and sew, leaving a 2” gap in the base middle.


Step 9 Turn right side out and stuff with filling. Fold the gap inwards and insert a doubled up piece of brown felt to resemble a tree trunk. Stitch across to close the gap.
