Stitched Felt Applique

 
Fall is sneaking up on us, so I thought I'd get ahead of the game and do a little crafting.
With a few scraps laying around the house, here's what I came up with.
 

Just find yourself a leaf pattern (use google, draw one, trace a real one.. whatever it takes).
 Print or draw your pattern on the paper side of iron-on adhesive,
 iron to a piece of felt just larger than you pattern, then
cut out your pattern/felt leaving about an 1/8 inch border all the way around,
peel off the paper, then iron-on your leaves to your project.
*Your finished applique will be MIRROR IMAGE of what you drew on the adhesive paper*
Just something to keep in mind especially if you're doing letters :)
 
Then use thread, twine, or embroidery floss and stitch the outline and details.
Here's the floss I used. It comes in all sorts of colors so the possibilities are endless.
 

 
I love how the applique looks with the little stitches. Gotta love texture.
Hope you also have fun getting ready for the season.
