Loving Leaves

If you were to look around my home you would see that I love leaves. I have leaves on curtains, knobs, light fixtures, vessels, and beautiful lacy copper leaves hanging on the wall. Using leaves as inspiration, here is one of my most recent designs and tutorials for a simple to make fabric Leaf Napkin Ring. For the printable pattern and instructions see the Patterns & Supply Lists tab here on my blog.

4 transfer pattern to freezer paper 5 press pattern to center line on fabric 6 fold and cut out 7 remove pattern and fold lengthwise 8 sewing casing 9 insert wire 10 open out smooth seam 11 slip on napkin and shape

Here are a couple variations. Place the seam up if using a color fabric and jazz another up with rhinestones! A straight blade rotary cutter may be used instead and free motion veins could be added too. Do you have any other ideas?
