Leaves With Scraps...Tutorial




I stumbled across this wonderful blog, CAROLYN SAXBY MIXED MEDIA TEXTILE ART, and wanted to share it with you. She has generously provided her readers with an excellent tutorial on textile leaves made with scraps (we all have them, I am sure of that).
This kind of crafting appeals to me immensely and these leaves can be used in so many ways, on jewelry, book covers, clothing, or with some beautiful fabric flowers, such as these. Aren't they gorgeous? I can hardly wait to start making them. A stockpile of these will certainly get the juices going. Of course, you could make something other than the leaf shape or color. How about a larger piece of base fabric to make a clutch or jewelry bag? Let's see what you can come up with...skills needed are minimal, and you could even stitch the whole thing by hand. 

You will enjoy looking around in her blog she is a very talented fiber artist. Thank you Carolyn, for sharing!
