Project Penguin #6: Stuffed Christmas Tree

Hello! This is Trevor again. Welcome back to Project Penguin! Today we will be making a stuffed Christmas tree.



Materials: green felt cut in the shape of trees (2), green thread, needle, fiberfill (or you can use cotton balls), star, Stickles (or sequins or whatever else you want to use to decorate)


1. Sew the tree together using a whip stitch. Start at the area where the trunk and tree meet, then sew all the way around the top to where the other area of where the trunk and tree meet. Do not sew the trunk together!


2. Stuff the tree with fiberfill. Sew the trunk together once you have a good amount of fiberfill in your tree.

3. Now decorate your tree with a star and Stickles or anything else you'd like to use. 


That's my tree above. This one below is my mom's. Before step 1, she sewed lines of gold thread on the front tree. 
 
Now it's your turn! Create a stuffed Christmas tree or something inspired by this for a chance to win. Take a photo, then link it below by January 3.
