Stanley Tree Round Up!

Happy New Year sewing friends! Did you have a nice holiday? Mine was cozy and filled with loved ones, just the way I like it.

It’s been really fun seeing our free pattern, the Stanley Tree, pop up here and there! This stuffed tree pattern is a great weekend project. The bonus is that you can use it year after year. Handmade holiday decorations are the best, no? Here’s my Stanley tree, I made it last year when we were testing the pattern!


Here are some of our favourites from around the web and instagram.

I wouldn’t have thought of mixing solid and print, but cara.ff has convinced me!

Aren’t they all super cute? Be sure to tag your Stanley Tree on instagram with #sewaholicstanley so we can see it!

    Happy New Year Caroline! I love your Christmas trees – cozy and so easy to pack away :) I look forward to seeing your 2016 collection. Your fabric has never disappointed – always the best quality and different :)

    Adorable! I made this tree using my raspberry covered fabric (I have no idea why I bought it in the first place))). I’m using it for my pins and I like how I can distribute pins all over the tree, they are not crowded and easy to use. Thank you for this pattern!

    Happy New Year, Caroline! You’re back on posting for Sewaholic, yay! I hope you’ll post more projects soon. You and I have a similar body type and I’ve always used your projects as a reference for how they would fit me, hi-hi :D.

    Happy New Year! Thanks so much for featuring my Stanley Tree. It’s a fun pattern to sew up and looks great on my dining room table. I feel the same as poppy, I don’t want to pack mine up either! Thanks for the free pattern. :-)

    These are all so great!! I didn’t get a chance to make one this year, but I definitely want one or two for next year, and what great gifts they would make too!
