The fusible interfacing will make the square quite stiff which is ideal for this softie.

Fold the piece in half right side facing together making sure corners match, pin and stitch along the straight line.

Turn the tree inside out and fill with stuffing.

Pin the bottom circle piece to the tree and stitch.

  1. I love it, just came over from Pink Chalk to check it out and have been back to vote for you! This is on my list for next year – I might start making in January so it’s not quite so hectic as this year! thanks for sharing


  2. I know this is an older pattern , but I will be soon trying it
    maybe a tip for who doesn’t have a compass in hand, you can use a normal measuring tape, they usually have a hole on , close of number 1 , just pin it to the fabric them you can swing the tape making it a compass, just get the measurement that you need and mark it
    also useafull to make tree skirts for christmas


  3. Just in time! I was surfing the internet looking for easy and different ornaments to donate to our local Pride Package program. This is an ongoing project started several years ago by a woman who’s son was stationed Iraq. While he was getting great packages every month from his family, some guys never got anything. Thus Pride Packages was begun that sends care packages of trial size shampoo, body wash, kleenex, beef jerky, snacks, socks and hats and etc. each month. Monies are made during the year by rummage sales, soup suppers and donations. This year there will be about 200-250 packages going out. But Christmas decorations and such are also needed this month as well as Christmas Cards that the soldiers can send back home. I recently found some quilt blocks precut at a rummage sale and this would be great to make. They will pack great! Thanks for the idea.
