Take Three identical sized leaves and stack them. Cut all three pieces in 3 separate angles as show on several leafs in this pattern. Have fun choosing your colors and cut placements.
Once the leaves are cut separate them and rearrange them back together with 3 different colors.
On one layer of linen felt arrange your leaves randomly to create a falling leaf image. Once you get the look you are going for, apply a small amount of fabric or felt glue to the leaves and adhere them to the linen felt.
Attach the felt leaves permanently to the linen felt using a blanket stitch, running, stitch, or whip stitch – What ever the mood you are in for. This is a fun project and totally adaptable to how you want it to look.
Add Veins to leaves and any decorative touch you would like.
