Fabric Leaves and Acorns ~ Giving Thanks
I first heard about these fabric fall leaves from my friend, Clarice. She sent me one last year and it was so pretty. The girls and I made quite a few this past October, along with acorns. I think they make wonderful Thanksgiving gifts for a friend, hostess gifts or decorations.
Fat quarters and fabric scraps are perfect for this project.
Clarice has the instructions for the leaves, please visit her to make some of your own!
For the acorns I enlarged a template in my word processor and printed them out.
Add a little fabric glue to attach the top to the acorn.
You could sew a small bead on the very top.
Or glue a bit of ribbon to the back. If I had thought of it earlier, I would have tucked it between the fabric, while making the acorns.
I also made a tag and and tied it around the leaf stems.
Thank you for taking a look!
