This felt leaf garland reminds me of all the best things about fall, minus the raking of the leaves.
First, grab some felt. Fall colors preferably.
Cut out leaf shapes until you develop carpal tunnel syndrome...or hopefully just before that point.
Arrange your leaves in whatever pattern you'd like.
Head to your sewing machine.
Begin by sewing straight through your first leaf. Grab the next leaf from your stack and push it through, as you near the end of the first leaf. If the foot doesn't catch the next leaf, simply raise the foot and position the next leaf to sew. Continue pushing through the next leaf in the stack until you reach the end of the pile. Lock in your stitch.
You've made a leaf garland.
Find a place to string them.
Or place them.
