A quick project for you and your kids – just in case you have a spare afternoon in the busy lead up to Christmas!

This is a fabulous project for using up scraps and very child friendly as there is no need to measure at all. Just sew and trim.


And yes we enjoy sewing in our pyjamas! Actually this was at about 7.30 am on a Sunday morning when Amelie woke me up as she was so excited about our sewing morning!


Start by picking out strips of green fabric for your tree. Arrange them in a tree shape and choose strips of white fabric to sew to each side of each of the green strips.


Sew each row and trim.

Sew the rows together. Trim and sew white strips to the top and bottom of the tree. Trim to your desired size. Use for placemats, a pillow cover, quilt blocks…!!
