Instructions:

  1. Using your Sew Easy Patchwork Triangle, you will need 2 fabric pieces (front and back of you project). You can use any patterned fabric or plane fabrics, so why not mix it up a little. If you want to use a fusible interface to make your project more rigid, you will need to cut out 2 Triangle pieces for your project, cut these a little smaller than your fabric.
    (I am using an iron on fusible interface) you need to attach your fusible interfacing on the wrong side of your fabric before you start sewing.
    You will also need some ribbon about 6”, this is for hanging your decoration.
    Lastly you will need a piece of felt for the trunk of your tree.

  2. If you are using a plane fabric you can decorate your fabric with some lovely decorative stitches. Chose some stitches and work them across your fabric, mix it up with different colour threads for a unique look. I have used a top thread in red and bottom thread in green for some of mine.
    If you want to make this personalised you can embroider someones name on the decoration.
    (You can miss this step if you are using a patterned fabric)

  3. Position your 2 triangle pieces right sides together with your ribbon in between your triangles at the top of the triangle, sew around the edge leaving the bottom, flat edge open. Trim the point and turn to the right side.
    If you want to step it up you can add a trim to the edge of you decoration.
