For tree:


  1. Cut 5 2”x 6” strips of piecing fabric in different patterns. Sew long ends right-sides together, and press toward darker side.  
  2. Cut 1 tree out of pieced fabric, 1 tree out of backing fabric, and 1 pocket out of backing fabric.
  3. Fold over one short edge of pocket ¼” and ¼” again and topstitch to finish edge. Press other sides over ¼”. Sew pocket to tree backing by edge-stitching around unfinished sides. 
  4. Sew pieced tree and backing tree right-sides together, leaving small hole to turn. Press well, and slip-stitch hole closed.

  2. Cut rectangle into 4 3.5”x 2” rectangles. Sew sets of two rectangles together, with matching squares facing each other diagonally. Press seams to one side.
  3. Cut each of the two squares diagonally in the same direction, creating four matching triangles.
  4. Match and sew all four triangles together to create square motif. Press well.
  5. Cut 1 matching square and 1 pocket out of backing fabric. Attach pocket to ornament back in same way as tree, and stitch front and back (wrong-sides together) around edges. 
  6. Create loop out of ribbon and attach to top center of ornament, with loop toward the inside.
