This pattern has a couple of smaller sections around the toe section and the Fancy Tree is a little more challenging.
This pattern assumes that you already know how to paper piece so there are no FPP technique tips included with the instructions. If you are new to Foundation Paper Piecing start with my Essential Tools for FPP video.
HOW TO ADD PERSONALISATION
This pattern has been designed so that it works in conjunction with the Mini FPP Alphabet PDF pattern. If you have a copy of this pattern it means that you can create all whole array of personalised little Christmas Stockings. See the listing pictures for an example of the Christmas Stocking with the letter E. In the Mini FPP Alphabet PDF pattern there are also a few additional characters, including a Star and a Heart, both of which would look great on a little stocking!

The Striped Easter Egg FPP pattern makes a fun 8″ Easter themed block. It will look fabulous in a range of muted pastel tones.
Just imagine how stunning it would look as a mini wall hanging or incorporated into a larger quilt. It would also look great on a cushion or pillow cover, perfect for decorating your home at Easter.
The Cactus in a Pot FPP pattern makes a Catus that requires absoloutely no watering at all!
The completed block measures 10″ x 14″.
You could make it up on it’s own and use it for a mini wall hanging, or add some sashing strips to the outer edges and use it to turn into a tote bag. You could even use it to make up a cushion as you can see in one of the pictures.
