another rainy day - soft tree project

I stumbled across soft trees flickr group
the other day and thought, what a nice idea. So when we got up today and realised it was going to be an indoors day I thought
we would have a go at making one. I found some green fabric and cut a circle out of it then a cone shape, making sure that the bottom edge of the cone was slightly longer than the circumference of the circle. Cut it out, sewed up the edge then sewed the circle to the bottom edge, leaving a gap to turn it the right side out. Is this making sense?
BabyEbi then helped me stuff it then as he had his snack I sewed up the hole that was left for the stuffing and dug out some suitable bits to decorate the tree with...a beautiful result, I think - but then I am biased!


  1. i really like your blog, i'm monica, a mom form italy, i was searching for montessori real life with kids, can i ask you where did you take the label for clothes for your baby room? i want to do thesame think for my boy, but i'm not so good to drawn them ( i read well in english, but maybe i dont' write so much well! ), thank you very much. monica

  2. Hi Monicac,
    Do you mean the labels on the clothes draws, pants, socks etc? I made them. I printed the written side then drew the pictures, I figured it would be quicker than trying to draw them on the computer or searce the internet for suitable clipart. Once I had finished them I laminated them, hole punched a hole in and threaded threw some ribbon.

    I lived in Italy for a year in a town called Pescara. Loved it, would have stayed longer but I had a place at university to go to.


Thank you!
I love hearing from you and if you haven't joined us in Moms That Rock, come on over!
