There's nothing like scattered leaves to bring in the fall.
I found this really great faux leather at a warehouse this week. I bought a half a yard for $2. I had a million things in my head I wanted to do with it. But then it hit me, I really wanted to make a table runner of big leaves.
You see I've been wanting to make a table runner like this forever but didn't want to figure out how to finish the edges. This was the perfect material.
I liked how the texture was kinda leafy.
I googled leaf silhouettes, and drew a couple of shapes out on paper. Than I traced then onto the back of the leather.
This was the most time consuming job. It took me about 45 minute to sew on all the veins. I used yellow thread but I think tan or off white would work well too.
When the veins were done, I lined them up in an order I liked. I made sure each leaf touched the another in two spots on both side. Then I marked the touching points with a small sharpie.
I used a brown thread to tack the touching points together.
I'm not ready to bring out Halloween, but I'm enjoying a touch of fall.I'll be linking Here.
