Fall has finally arrived here in Seattle. The weather has dropped back down into the 50s, the rain has been nearly constant, and I have a fever and the sniffles.
Despite that, this is still my favorite tie of the year. During a rare free moment (i.e. not working for starbucks or on things for the etsy), I put together a little felt leaf garland to hang over the doorway to the kitchen.
I used a sizzix die to cut the felt, and then just did a running stitch with a few different shades of orange embroidery floss to make the actual garland. A few buttons from an old Autumn leaves set help finish the look and add some weight.
It looks kind of cozy. Just right for fall.
