- Free-handed tree pattern
- Woven Fabric Scraps
- Felt Square
- 10” Ribbon
- Pinking Sheers
- Sewing Machine
- Using the felt square as the backer, place your first scrap print side up. Position your second scrap print side down. The two scraps will be right sides together.
- Straight stitch strips of fabric in place. Turn the top layer of fabric over and finger press flat. Repeat until you have a large enough patchwork for your desired shape.
- Add decorative stitching in contrasting thread.
- Trace and cut out your shape. I used pinking sheers.
- Fold ribbon in half and insert at the top edge between the backer felt and scrap layers.
Straight stitch all around to keep the ribbon and fabric in place.
- Reduce or enlarge tree outline as desired. Ornament pictured is approximately 4” tall.
