Folded Strip Christmas Tree taught by Kaye Joachim

If you are interested in taking this class, please contact Kaye Joachim. The cost is $8.00, which includes the class fee and a kit.  Kit includes pattern and tree templates.

At Home Instructions (Prior to Class) 

Make your fabric tubes. Select one 2-1/2” x 42/44” fabric strip and one batting strip. Lay fabric strip wrong side up with batting on top of the fabric strip. 

Fold the unit in half lengthwise and press. Open up and fold each side to the middle and press then fold in half again and press. This makes a tube. Sew to close or pin. The rest will be done in class.
