Here is what you need:
Fall colored felt or fleece
Leaf patterns (I used clip art for mine)
Sewing machine (optional- you could hand sew if you want!
1.) Cut out a BUNCH of leaves out of your felt/ fleece
I cut out about 22. Don't they look so pretty all piled up. I almost want to jump into them!
2.) Sew on leaf details on each leaf. It is a bit tedious - but so worth it! : )
3.) Sew sets of two leaves together at the tips.
4.) Line up at your pairs of leaves to get an idea of what order you want them to be placed in. I didn't want the same kind or color of leaf to be touching, but otherwise it was pretty random.
5.) Pile up all your leaf pair in the order you want to sew them.
6.) Sew your leaves pairs together. This also can be a bit tedious I sewed some together at the tips and others more to the bottom part of the leaves. I just had to see how it fit the best. But I would guess if you are a quilter you would probably be better at lining these up than I was.
