As I browsed through the decor area of one of my favorite stores, I came upon a beautiful little felted Christmas Tree. I fell in love automatically. The tree was made of out felt material just stitched together and decorated with little bells all around. I went home with the idea of the little felted tree. I am terrible with the sewing machine so I kept the idea in the back burner for a future use. Later as I was doing things around the house, it occurred to me that I could just knit myself a little tree of my own. It wouldn't be sewn like the one I saw but it would still be a little tree. Off to work I went and thus my little ornament was born.
