Played with felt last week and came up with this leafy cuff for my daughter using scraps she donated to me. I have limited colours but thought I could make a leaf cuff work. I chose scraps that were big enough to cut with the TH Tattered Leaves die and cut 12 leaves. I used wool thread which I obtained at a local thrift shop - also limited colours. I found some to coordinate with all of my leaves and did the button hole stitch around all of them hiding my ends in the felt. I wanted to add a bit of colour so used gold thread in my sewing machine
and added the veining in each leaf. Now came the fun part - layering them to create a pleasing arrangement. Once I liked the placement, I pinned them to each other to maintain their order and stitched them together. I used regular sewing thread and hand stitched each leaf to the one below it where they overlapped. I used very small stitches and did not go all the way through the felt so the underside looks as nice as the front. I added two little black snaps as a closure which could be moved if it didn't fit perfectly. As it was, it was just right and she liked it!!
