Designer: Cindy Green

Enjoy the beauty of natural motifs without leaving the comfort of your home. This birch tree pillow adds a fall touch to your decor!


Materials:

  • 2—9×12″ pieces of white felt
  • 2—12×17″ pieces of brown fabric
  • Sewing thread: white and brown
  • Sewing needle
  • Polyester fiberfill
  • Tree Pattern

1. Enlarge and trace the tree pattern, above, onto the pieces of white felt; cut out. To cut out the tree holes on trees 2, 3, and 4, fold the felt tree in half and use scissors to cut a semicircle in the folded edge.

2. Referring to the Appliqué Placement Diagram, pin the white felt trees to a 12×17″ piece of brown cotton fabric. Set your sewing machine to a zigzag stitch. Using white sewing thread, machine-stitch over the edges of each felt tree.
