Christmas Tree Pants Sew-Along - DAY 1

October 7th, 2011

Sew,Mama,Sew! Holiday Sew-AlongToday kicks off Day 1 of my Christmas Tree Pants Holiday Sew-Along (because not all trees like to wear skirts) at Sew,Mama,Sew!

Please join me today for Day 1, and the next and following Friday (October 14 & 21) for Day 2 and Day 3 of the sew-along.

Sew along with me and post your photos each week to the Christmas Tree Pants Sew-Along Flickr group for a chance to win sleigh-load of great goodies from the  Sew,Mama,Sew! Holiday Sew-Along.  Every photo you post in the Tree Pants flickr group is an entry!  All the SMS prize info is at the bottom of my tutorial on SMS.  Good times.

Day 1 is making 9-patch stars. Since I’m like my own Hair Club For Men, I’m participating in my sew-along too! The scrappy version.
Christmas Tree Pants sew-along - Day 1

For Day 1 we’ll make seven 9-patch stars. Totally do-able, right? So to make it easy on myself, I got a little mathie so I could get all my ducks scraps in a row. This is my formula:

From 10 strips, cut:
6) 4½” squares
1) 2½” x 12½” rectangle

From 1 strip, cut:
6) 4½” squares
2) 2½” x 12½” rectangle

From 1 strip, cut:
8) 4½” squares
Christmas Tree Pants sew-along - Day 1

Oh look, I just happen to have 3 little bundlettes of 5″ strips of a Holiday Happy & Happy Mochi Yum Yum combo.  Just lying around, waiting to go to good home.  Each Friday of my sew-along I’ll give one away.
Christmas Tree Pants sew-along - Day 1

Leave me a comment here to enter for this week’s bundlette.  Maybe I can schmooze you into telling me what your current fave 3-color combo is?  I’ll announce the winner here on this post next Friday just before I post the teaser post for Day 2 of the Tree Pants sew-along.

    Tough call…today I will say grey, pumpkin, and plum. Tomorrow will likely be different! Thanks!

  2. The fabulous Diane allegedly said:

    Very cute fabric!

  3. The fabulous jennifer allegedly said:

    My favorite 3 color combo currently is orange, yellow and gray (maybe throw in some blue or green too) but very much about the citrine colors!

  4. The fabulous Ang-e allegedly said:

    Yay! Can’t wait to get started on this - it’s so clever!

  5. The fabulous Eva Marie allegedly said:

    My current favorite color combo is robins egg blue, lime green and canary yellow.

  6. The fabulous Eva Marie allegedly said:

    I’m a little confused about the directions. Why are we cutting 5 inch strips if we then want 4.5 inch squares? Shouldn’t we cut 4.5 inch strips and 4.5 inch squares from those strips? Which strip or strips goes into making the white stars?

    This is for if you want your scrappy version to be more planned and controlled, vs just foraging for scraps. The 5″ strip measurement is so you have some cutting elbow room - plus one strip you need 5″ so you can cut two 2½” by 12½” rectangles. Hope that made sense - Monica

  7. The fabulous Molly allegedly said:

    my favorites: just about any colors with aqua!

  8. The fabulous sparklesax allegedly said:

    Third, my three color combo right now… salmon, teal, butter yellow. Not sure why, but it’s what I want to be surrounded by at all times lately. New salmon-colored dress in in the works so hopefully this new obsession lasts for a few months.

  12. The fabulous Lee allegedly said:

    As with the seasons changing, so do color preferences. But…when I am in a store looking at fabrics, I seem to be drawn to turquoise and crisp white.

  13. The fabulous Lee allegedly said:

  73. The fabulous LizA. allegedly said:

    I just love these blocks–I like the way the star “floats”. My three fav colors change from day to day. I’ve been cutting red and yellow strips and trying to decide if I want to add whit or black to them, or maybe even green. But, my old stand by is always jewel tones, esp. royal blue, purple and green.

  91. The fabulous Ann in NC allegedly said:

    Too funny! Maybe one of these days I will learn to get the pictures out of my camera, and then a whole new step, posting to flicker! You would think your contest would help motivate me! I stil love the bright “neutrals” of lime green, fuschia, and another color… maybe white to keep with a neutral palette! It would be terrific to win a bundle so my tree would have pants!

  100. The fabulous Bree allegedly said:

    I’m loving brown and aqua love theses tree pants can not wait to start
