Free Little Tree Applique Pattern – SewCanShe Applique of the Month Club!


Here it is! The second applique design in your free Applique of the Month Club from SewCanShe. I have six designs in all that I’m going to post here on the blog and I’m calling them my ‘Far Away Forest’ Collection because they are little drawings inspired by Russian fairy tales. The first design is a little fox that you can read about {here}.


With the holiday season already upon us, I thought the little tree pattern would be the perfect one to give you this month. It is very simple – only four pieces – and you can work it right into your holiday decor if you wish like I did on this holiday pillow.

How to applique (short version):

I used HeatnBond lite to trace and apply my applique pieces to the circle piece. Then I machine stitched around the edges. I used SpraynBond to temporarily stick the circular piece to my pillow cover while I hand-stitched it on. You can also find detailed information and tips about how to applique in {this free tutorial}  from ivy designs.


I also played around with the idea of adding tiny jingle bells to the tree for some extra embellishment. But in the end I decided I liked the simple look more so I cut the bells off.

Don’t you love that about sewing? Almost nothing is un-doable.
