LET’S SEW A TREE
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 don’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 it’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 don’t need new curtains or bed linen

Some days ago I had an idea and here is the tutorial. It’s really simple and the result is very decorative.

Let’s start:

    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 - that’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! I’m very curious

you know what would be great is to use the same idea but to make a small family tree, using names instead of the other stuff. if you got enough together you could make a family forest.

did you use cut felt shapes to decorate them? Their edges look so neat
