“The bundle of Riley Blake Christmas fabric from Prints To Polka Dots really lend themselves to this idea. They have a retro look to them.”

I first saw this Idea on the internet and have adapted It on a smaller scale. This works well to make these beautiful 3D Christmas trees.

First decide what size template from the bunting template you wish to use. I have used a 6” one for my tree but larger sizes also work well.

daisy2You can buy ready cut triangles in the fabric of your choice in store, you could mix and match for different looks on each side of the tree – click here – Claire ptpd.

With your right sides of fabric together pin your template onto the fabric and cut out. You need to repeat this so you have 6 pieces of fabric in total that are the same.

daisy3Take each pinned triangle and use pins to mark 2” in along the bottom edge from both edges as shown. This will be the start of your sewing point.

daisy4Sew from the pin along the bottom edge, turning at corners until you come to the other pin along the bottom edge leaving a gap for turning through.

daisy5Before you turn each triangle through make sure you snip each corner close to stitching this will create a crisp finished when turned through making your triangle keep its shape.

daisy6Now you can turn your 3 triangles through from the bottom opening to the right side and press.

daisy7Take your 3 pressed pieces of fabric and lay one on top of the other ensuring the points and bottom edges are in line. Now measure the top triangle finding the middle and pin down this line ready for machining through all layers.

daisy8Carefully machine stitch down this line removing pins as you go.

daisy9You will now be left with segments to stuff from the gap created at the bottom of your triangles.

Make sure you fill each segment to the very tip and fill until you reach the bottom edge which can now be hand stitched to close up each gap.

daisy11You are now left with a 3D Christmas tree which can be embellished to you taste. I’ve used a bow on the top of mine but you could use a bell. Also try making them in different sizes as a Christmas decoration with a difference.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.
