Fabric Christmas Trees

I love the fabric, handmade Christmas trees. I buy them at thrift stores. I decided to make some, but I can't find a pattern. Does anyone have the directions? There are 2 kinds; one looks like stacked stars and the other is shaped like a tree, 3 points on each section. Here are the pictures of them.

You can order a vintage pattern of the one style here:

These are slightly similar:

The star one seems like it would be easy to fake with several graduating size stuffed stars stacked together. Take a 5 pt star shape to a copy store and have them enlarge it to 5 or more sizes increasingly larger.

Here is another pic of the same type of star tree for ideas (scroll down a bit):

I just bought a simplicity pattern for the first tree and it was half price too at Hancock Fabrics :)
