I love to think I can make loads of handmade gifts for Christmas but in reality it rarely never works out that way. I made a few of these trees the other day and they were super quick and easy and used up lots of little scraps.
I started with two 5"tall 60 deg triangles, the blue is felt and the red and white spot is fabric. You can also put fusible webbing on the back of one of them which would make it easier but I'd run out.
Use a small piece of 1"wide ribbon folded over for the trunk, then place the felt over the top. Layer on ribbon and braids and top stitch them down though all the layers.
Put a loop of ribbon between the layers at the top point and stitch right around the edge.
Trim the edges of your ribbons and braids and you're done!
My first bit of Christmas for this year, tomorrow I tackle the shortbread and mince pies!
