Feelin’ crafty? I just discovered a free pattern download that Stephanie Barnes of Little Birds and 3191 fame so graciously put on her blog like forever ago. After finding it on Monday, I grabbed a few pieces of fabric and after a few snips here and some stitching there, this my friends is my 1st little soft tree.
She’s a little imperfect, but still very cute. This is the easiest thing you’ll ever sew, so please give it a try. I made this while watching Project Runway last night (which by the way, this is such a great season, I totally see Christian, Rami, and Jillian in the final three).
But back to the tree, after looking at it for awhile, I decided to give this softie a little personality with some black thread. So now the tree is a she and I’ve named her Clara. Download your pattern here, and when you finish your little baum, please post it in Stephaine’s flickr group called soft trees so we can all ooo and aaaah over it.
