2.Trace the trunk pattern on the laminate side of the Brown PUL. Fold the PUL fabric sides together, and sew around the trunk, leaving the top edge open. Trim edges 1/4” away from sewing line, and clip corners. Turn the trunk right side out, and stuff with a little polyester stuffing.

3. Pin the stuffed tree trunk to the fabric side of the tree, centered on the bottom edge. The raw edge should match the edge of the tree, and the trunk should be toward the center of the tree (see photo below). Baste it down close to the edge.

4. Fold the piece of ribbon or cording into a loop, and tie a knot near the ends. Position the loop at the top point of the tree, with center fold of loop hanging down toward the center of the tree. Baste the ends down close to the edge (see photo below).

5. Place Green PUL pieces for tree fabric sides together. Make sure the loop is inside the tree shape (secure with transparent tape if desired), so it does not get caught in your stitching. Use a straight stitch to sew around the tree on the marked sewing line, leaving a 1” opening on a straight edge. Cut around the tree 1/4” from the drawn and sewn line, clipping corners and curves.

6.Turn the tree shape right side out. The trunk and loop should pop out when you turn it. Stuff firmly with polyester fiberfill. Fold the raw edges of your turning hole toward the inside, and blind stitch the hole shut with a needle and green thread, to finish your tree ornament.

These are terrific! Thanks so much for sharing. They will be a great way to use up PUL scraps. I think they would actually look great in a mix of prints, too, for fun!
