Sew a Softie Festive Edition

Wow, time sure does fly by! 

It is my turn today to inspire you with a stunning, yet easy to sew pattern. 

For us here in South Africa our Festive Season is sunny and hot and we do enjoy spending time outside. 

My pattern today is a simple Christmas tree, but the fun is in decorating it with anything you have in the house that you can sew on. (or maybe even glue it on)  Any old pieces of ribbon, buttons and beads will do it!

I used felt, some old rick-rack from my moms stash and a bit of left over sequins.

Cut 2 of the tree pattern.  Sew on your decorations on one of the tree parts before you sew the 2 parts together.  Mix and match your decorative bits.  Plan before you start sewing.

After everything is sewed on.  Sew the back and front pieces together and leave an opening at the bottom. Fold you pieces of rick-rack or ribbons to the inside before you sew, it will leave it nice and neat. 

Stuff your tree and sew the bottom closed.

Please share your pictures with us!  Have a wonderful holiday, festive season and I wish you a creative 2018!
