I made some 'happy little trees', they are so fun to work on! I love making stuff that doesn't need a pattern, I just cut them out. these have little embroidered bird or squirrels, and are weighted on the bottom so they stand up on their own. I need a whole forest of them.

I'm thinking that you could maybe
use your HAND as a pattern for trees.
Maybe?

I simply love your sweet little trees.

They really are adorable. How long does it usually take to make them, and when you fill the bottem with rice do you make a separate pouch for them to sit in? Does the rice get messy?

These are so cute! I'm trying to think of a way to incorporate them into my science curriculum (or curriculum is very tight)...we are doing the kingdoms of living things soon, so maybe I could work it in there somehow when we do plants.

The problem is, I don't want to buy all of the fabric...maybe I'll make a set and then if kids want to make their own, they can bring in what they need (maybe even an old shirt would work). Instead of embroidery "creatures," I'll probably have them make them out of felt and use fabric glue to attach them.

About how big did you make yours?

Thanks for sharing!

thanks for all the comments!! I'm glad you all like my little trees. I am actually donating part of the sale price of these to the Arbor Day foundation. Smiley I love the idea that they'll help plant real trees.  To answer some questions, they are around 11-12 inches tall. I didn't use a separate pouch for the rice, just poured it into the bottom. Just be sure your seams are tight! I haven't had any problem with it. It took maybe 2-3 hours to make each one.  Smiley

pattiewack made the suggestion to use your hand to design the tree and it's a great idea.  if it's a gift, you could trace a kid's hand and wrist and then make it into a tree and as they grow you could add to their forest. the trees wouldn't be quite like yours, but it could work. your trees are quite cute

That's a really good suggestion. They did look like hands to me, just with leaves. Cheesy
