One new thing I tried this Christmas was making some soft little fabric trees. I had seen these on a blog quite some time ago and had saved the pattern. This year I finally got around to making a couple of these. They didn't come out quite as nicely as the ones I had seen, but they are cute.
I thought a blue tree would be nice in the upstairs bathroom. This particular blue isn't exactly right, but I liked the fabric (which I had on hand) so much that I used it anyway.
This tree is resting on an inverted footed glass dessert dish.
I made a green tree, too. Here you see it with other items on a hutch shelf.
Later I had the inspiration to put the tree in a Christmas teacup.
