What you will need
· Triangle template -3 sizes if you want small medium and large
· Fabric marker
· Toy stuffing
· Needle and thread
· Sewing machine
· Iron and mat
· Glue gun and glue sticks
· Doweling wood
· Log slices
Make a triangle template from card/paper -play around with the size and shape. Make a small, medium and large one if you want a trio set.
Press your fabric
Fold fabric right sides together and trace round your template with a fabric marker and cut them out. You should have 2 triangle pieces
Pin the triangle together with a small seam allowance then sew the triangle together leaving the base of the tree open.
Trim the seams and snip of the point at the top of the tree.
Turn the tree right sides out and press- whilst pressing turn the raw edges of the base of the tree under by 1 cm. This is to not have any raw edges.
Fill with toy stuffing
Find the centre of the base of the tree make a mark where the doweling stick will go and sew up to the centre leaving a gap either side to insert the cinnamon stick
Cut a piece of doweling to the height of the tree that you want.
Use a hot glue gun and squeeze some glue onto one end of the Dowling stick then insert the glue stick up into the gap at the base of the tree
Drill a hole into the log slice wide enough to insert the doweling wood.
Now insert the tree part into the log slice
Congratulations you have now made a lovely fabric Christmas tree.
