Ok, ok. I’ll admit. I got tired of waiting for the leaves in the yard to turn and fall. So I made my own. So there.
I found some basic leaf patterns by googling “basic leaf patterns”…cookie cutters work well too.
Pin the pattern piece to a doubled piece of felt…
and cut out two of every fall color you can get your hands on.
Then sewing two at a time, run a tight zig zag stitch from one end of the leaf to the other. I used dark brown thread on all the colors.
I liked the effect.
Now fold the sides of the leaf upward toward the stitching for a 3-D look.
You can tack them to a ribbon and hang them up somewhere…
or….you can pretend you’re the wind…
just waiting to blow and scatter the leaves everywhere.
Well, you know…until we get the real thing.
Happy Birthday Jacob!
