1. Cut a pile of leaf shapes from felt in various autumnal colours (you can easily find leaf templates online but I cut my leaves out free hand).
2. Sew down the centre of your first leaf. When you have reached the opposite end of the leaf feed the next leaf under the foot of your sewing machine and sew down the middle of that leaf.
3. Repeat, varying the colour of the leaves as you go.
4. Once you run out of leaves continue sewing for a few inches to make it easier to hang your garland.
And that’s it; the same method can be used to create a garland of any theme that you can imagine. I have made paper garlands before by recycling old magazines with colourful pictures and sewing several layers together at once for a more 3D effect.
Let me know if you give it a go!
