Rather than create a new project, I chose to use an existing tutorial -- Festive Forest -- by Sarah @ Berry Barn Designs. It's a tutorial that I've been wanting to try for some months. You can get the Festive Forest pattern here. My thanks to Sarah for allowing me to showcase her tutorial.
You need to cut out seven trees using the template provided in Sarah's pattern. I went traditional and cut out green trees. You can use whatever colours you want -- I think an autumn version would be awesome.
Next applique your trees using your preferred method.
I took the easy route and machine stitched my trees to the background.
A quick all-over stipple in white thread for a quick finish. I debated on what colour to use for the binding -- so glad I went with green.
Ta da -- a quick and easy Christmas wall hanging for yourself or to give as a gift. I forgot to time myself, but I think this is a project that can be easily done in a couple of hours or less.
This finishes around 13.5 inches x 23 inches. But you can make it whatever size you wish. It's a great tutorial and pattern that allows for creativity.
Don't forget to head over to Berry Barn Designs to get the pattern -- Festive Forest pattern.
