Today's ornament is a Christmas tree made out of fabric scraps. Start by sewing 1 inch strips together to make a patchwork piece.
Cut the piece into a simple tree shape and sew the layers together. I hand sewed mine, but you can use your sewing machine too. I put in a little stuffing inside before I sewed them up.
I embellished the tree with pompoms, ricrac and a little loop of baker's twine.
Are you feeling merry yet? I'm ashamed to say that the Christmas decorations are slowly coming out at my house. It's so much work... I don't like to wait til after Thanksgiving!
