There are a number of tree softies tutorials around which I used to come up with my tree softies in 3 sizes. Some of them are listed here
- Soft tree pattern
- Lucy Kate Crafts tutorial
- Littlebirds tree pattern
- allsorts felt tree
- Felt Christmas tree pincushion
On the other hand, if you’re interested in an improved version of the softie that sits a lot better, see my Patchwork Christmas tree softie tutorial (photo below). If you’re not interested in the patchwork that’s fine, you can still use the method to produce a tree softie just as easily.
Materials for the old version of my tree softie
Fabric scraps in matching colours
Make two triangles with the following measurements:
- Base 6 inches
- Height 9 inches
Cut a rectangle 9 in x 12 in *
- Base 5 7/8 inches
- Height 7 1/2 inches
Cut a rectangle 7 1/2 in x 12 in *
Optional: Larger triangle (see bottom set of trees at the bottom of this tutorial)
- Base 7 inches
- Height 10 inches
Cut one rectangle 14 in x 10 in *
Stitch fabrics leaving 1/4 seam allowance.
Turn inside out and add any embellishments such as ric rac or leave as is.
Stitch the base to the sides with matching cotton thread.
The fabrics match the my Little Forest wall hanging.
