I start out by cutting out several trunks from brown felt--this takes about 1 minute if you use a rotary cutter. Then I cut out my colorful triangles for the trees with pinking sheers.
I stitch my safety pin on what will be the backside, stitching the stationary side of the pin--and then I go ahead and stitch the trunk on. Using a contrasting color of DMC floss (I apparently like green a lot) I stitch the front side of the tree onto the pin, making sure the floss lands in all the grooves of where the pinking sheer cut. Before finishing, leave a little opening and insert a teeny bit of fiber fill, then finish stitching. And that's it! I think you could easily make a couple of dozen in a day!
