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.
