Christmas tree pattern
In our case, these are two triangles, one slightly smaller than the other. They can be drawn under the ruler, and you can redraw directly from the monitor, attaching a sheet of paper to it and drawing contours with a pencil.
Christmas tree toy made of felt: job description
Cut out both parts of the pattern, but the outer part is not cutting along the lines inside the triangle. We draw a larger triangle on green felt. I folded the felt in half, so for the manufacture of three toys on the tree of felt, I needed to circle only three triangles. If you are working with a large sheet, you will need to circle the triangle six times. We cut out our triangles - we have three pairs of triangles - the basis for three toys. We select color felt. I have a blue, yellow and pink color. On each sheet we circle only one smaller triangle. Cut out three colored triangles, and cut each of them into three parts according to the smaller pattern. Mix the colored parts of the triangles so that each of them turned out to be tricolor. Immediately pick up and cut off the right size threea piece of tape so that our trees can be hung on a wall or Christmas tree. We picked up the ribbon in tone blue felt, unfortunately, in the photo it seems that the shade does not match. We sew the adjacent parts of the front part of the Christmas tree with a stitched seam. It turns out bright and elegant. We arrange a decorative piece in patchwork style on top of one of the green triangles so that the width of the edge is approximately the same on all sides. Sew both sides with stitch seams. We enclose the second green part of the future toy under the first one and sew them with a looped seam around the perimeter. Fold the ribbon in half, you can fix the bottom of a knot or a couple of stitches. We put it in the upper corner of the tree and stitch it. Do not forget to leave a hole for stuffing. It will take quite a bit of filler, just to give a felt toy a bit of volume, such a nice plumpness. Our mini kit of felt toys for the Christmas tree is ready. In the same way, you can make toys of any recognizable silhouette - a house, a Christmas wreath, Santa's boot, etc. And how to sew with cross-stitch - read the link provided.
