Usually I avoid to use IKEA fabrics, because you see them everywhere and therefore i find them pretty boring. OK, there are some really classy plaid IKEA fabrics which I donâ€™t want to miss.
And there is one new fabric at IKEA that is very, very nice - a bit retro style. But the pattern is very big so itâ€™s difficult to use it except for curtains or bed linen. Well, I really had to buy this fabric because I like it so much - but we donâ€™t need new curtains or bed linen
Some days ago I had an idea and here is the tutorial. Itâ€™s really simple and the result is very decorative.
Drive to IKEA and buy a piece of the fabric FREDRIKA with the cute trees on it:
Cut them out and neat the edges:
Decorate them - just as you like it. They look really nice even if you use them without extra decoration:
Put the two halfs one on another - face to face - and sew them together. Of yourse you have to leave a little opening to fill the wadding inside the tree. Finally you close the tree by hand with the blind stitch:
And - thatâ€™s it!
You can hang the tree into a window, use it as a decoration or even as a pillow.
If you sew your own IKEA fabric tree: Leave a link to your work! Iâ€™m very curious
