Living by the sea we don't get to enjoy a lot of autumnal charm so I decided to create a bit of my own.
Using painted fabrics in Autumn colours I fused two pieces wrong sides together and then cut out leaf shapes of different sizes. I was in a bit of a hurry so I kept the shape basic.
I then free machine stitched the leaf veins in contrasting threads. The webbing (I used HeatnBond Lite for these) acts as a stabiliser making the stitching simple.
I then attached the leaves to some machine wrapped hemp cord which has a nice stiffness to it. (Look in the jewelry supplies section of craft shops for this).
Et Voila! My own Autumn Leaves Bunting!
