Paper Pieced Christmas Tree Sewing Pattern

Check out this paper pieced Christmas tree! A modern Christmas quilt sewing pattern, it's a great first paper piecing pattern to try and uses up the smallest of scraps.

Paper piecing is so much fun, and I’m getting a jump on holiday sewing with this paper pieced Christmas tree! Most traditional holiday decor isn’t my style but I love how the geometric lines and crisp edges of this design looks when it is sewn up. A completed block measures 12″ square and I’m planning on making it into a pillow set with my paper pieced reindeer from another Quiet Play pattern, see it here!

Free Felt Reindeer Ornament or Softie Pattern

Sew up this felt reindeer ornament for the holidays - it is a great beginner sewing pattern that you can do all by hand!

I’m joing in with the Sew a Softie for Christmas  crew, led by Trixi from Coloured Buttons. Trixi is always inspiring people to learn how to sew and posting fun softie stuff – last spring I sewed my free sheep softie along with Sew A Softie Day as well!

This go around, I’m sharing a cute little leaping reindeer. I sewed it as an ornament, as this tutorial is also written, but it would be an adorable applique or blown up into a  bigger softie as well. The pom pom nose is just irresistible, and you could add additional embroidery on the body if you were so inclined. I’m thinking of making a few in white and letting my kids color them, to gift!
