this fabric collage of a tree and thought I would provide a bit of information for anyone who might be inspired to make one themselves.
I started with a floral bed sheet!!! I cut two 9" squares from it and then cut a piece of batting just slightly smaller.
I began the process of adding stitching and beads with the trunk and then did all the leaves. I used what I had in my stash of beads - mostly round seed beads and a few longer thin ones. I mixed the colours and tried to coordinate them with the leaf colour. I used brown, green and blue embroidery floss to stitch on my beads.
You can check out the final project here. It was a really fun project and I expect I will be making a few more!! If you are inspired I hope you will give it a go!!
