I was chatting Christmas projects with my mom-in-law this past week. I was telling her my plan for some little gifts I plan to make. She mentioned a pattern she’d sewn back in the day that was easy and quick.
After searching for the directions and the pattern I thought it would be fun to try it.
Yesterday I pulled out some cute Christmas plaid and got to work.
Five hours later… I decided these must get faster with practice. I drew out the pattern, cut out all six tree shapes, sewed them together in pairs, ironed them, sewed them together and started stuffing. Then I had to patch the seems that popped (oops!) The stuffing took me as long as all the cutting and sewing combined.
But once I got the branches stuffed I had some help from Lu Lu 🙂
The whole thing turned out pretty cute though I think I’ll add some tiny bells or balls to the tips of the branches and maybe a star.
I doubt I’ll be making more. It used up my entire stash of stuffing!
After working all day on it I’m ready to write today!
