Sew a tree & be a tree hugger.
This project was done on Earth day, so I repurposed old shirt to make this cute tree plushie. No measurements needed as the shape was roughly drawn. You can draw and sew your own version of the tree plushie as big as you like. The softie is totally hand stitched.
I use 1/4" seam allowance

    On the wrong side of the materials, hold together the center point where the foliage meets the bark. Pin together both materials. Hand stitch the layers together. (1/4" - 1/2" seam allowance). The right side will look as the above picture. Repeat the step for the other layers of foliage & bark.

    Sandwich the two layers together with right sides facing. Pin the layers together. Sew along the tree perimeter, leaving a few inches opening at the bottom of the bark for turning.
