I was shown how to make this by a friend and I made my adaptation to the method.
I like to hang mine in a doorway!
Finished Size: Approx 12″ x 10″
Using a rule: Find the 60 degree mark and put that along the long edge of the fabric. You will need to turn the rule to continue completing the triangle (check next photos)
Fold a corner back to this side and stitch.
Finish off. I like to take the needle through to one of the edges and cut it off there.
That is the unit completed. When you make the next one, make it the other way ie start on the other side. This will help you decide which way you want your tree to look and the other one will be the trunk!
When you have decided, continue making the other 9 units.
Press the units and place in order.
I am missing the top unit in this photo, but it will give you the idea!
You are going to join the units using a simple whip stitch – try to keep your stitches small.
Now it is time to embellish: Use bells, beads, buttons – whatever you like!
Attach a little loop at the top for hanging and there you are – all done!
I have also made these for people in Aged Care – let’s them have their own little bit of Xmas decoration!
Please show me if you make one!
Until next time
I will link up with Under The Xmas Tree at Clare’s Craftroom
