Okay, now I've got that off my chest, time to show you what came of October's Craft Challenge - I had to make something for Hayden related to Autumn leaves. . .
I decided to make her something to wear but being in the midst of Christmas prep (and having 'sewing machine fear' - that is definitely a real thing) I didn't really have the time to make something from scratch. So instead I decide to Customise a cardigan I had bought for her.
Felt in Autumn colours like red, brown, orange (I also had a bit of green to mix it up a little); and thread to match your cardie
First, cut some leaves out of your felt - I drew a template freehand but if you would rather use an existing one then you can find some cute ones on A Beautiful Mess
Position your leaves on the breast part of the cardigan and arrange to your liking. Idecided to just put them on the one side because I thought both would be a little 'fussy'
